0.5.0 (2016-05-01)

  • Dropped support for Python 2.6. Python 2.6 does not contain collections.OrderedDict, which is needed to support yanny objects, and at this point it is not worth going to the trouble to support this with an external package.

  • Ongoing review and upgrade of docstrings.

  • Yanny files can now be converted into genuine NumPy record arrays; previously, the conversion was only to numpy.ndarray with named columns, which is a slightly different thing.

  • Added additional tests on yanny objects.

  • Improving PEP 8 compliance

  • Restructuing sub-packages to reduce the number of files.

  • Improvements to spectral template processing code, deduplicated some code.

  • Support platform-independent home directory (PR #7).

  • Uppercase the package name (in documentation only).

  • Upgrade to astropy_helpers/v1.1.1.

  • Add functions from the idlutils rgbcolor directory.

  • spec_path() can now find SDSS spectra, not just BOSS.

0.4.1 (2015-09-22)

  • No changes at all from 0.4.0. This tag only exists because of a botched PyPI upload.

0.4.0 (2015-09-22)

  • Use astropy_helpers/v1.0.3, package-template/v1.0.

  • Remove some old FITS code that astropy.io.fits makes moot.

  • Remove code for command-line scripts. These are now auto-generated by the “entry_point” method.

  • Remove Python/3.2 tests.

  • Improved test coverage.

  • Fixed problem with the spheregroup code.
