What’s new?#

This release is a bug fix for v0.20. It corrects several issues that were recently reported and improves the documentation .

Data with Background2D IRFs were not handled correctly by the MapDatasetMaker in v0.20. This is now corrected.

Error bars in spectral excess plots were not correctly computed which resulted in inconsistent displays between excess and residual panels. The correct excess error is now computed.

Spectral extraction with point-like IRFs can fail is some cases where no counts are found within the radmax extension. This is due to an inconsistent behavior of the PointSkyRegion.contains method. A patch has been introduced to correct for that before this is fixed in the regions package.

The new Observation.peek() methods no longer returns empty panels when some IRF are not available.

Some issues affecting the SafeMaskMaker have been corrected as well as a bug of the ExcessMapEstimator appearing when the input Dataset had not mask defined.

The folder structure of the documentation has been updated to closely follow the documentation structure. This corrects some inconsistencies appearing in the lateral table of contents both in the main documentation and the tutorial pages.
