API Changes

Some routines have been renamed, with the old aliases preserved for backwards compatibility for now:

  • pull_isotime is now deprecated in favour of the alias pull_event_time_as_utc.
  • Citation is now deprecated in favour of the alias EventIvorn.

Documentation now includes tutorial material which was previously hosted in a separate GitHub repo.

0.9.8 - 2016/11/09

Enhancement to pull_isotime convenience function: Add support for conversion of event-timestamps to UTC from the TDB (Barycentric Dynamical Time) format. This is now in use ‘in the wild’ for the GAIA VOEvent stream. (Support for remaining VOEvent timescales ‘GPS’ and ‘TT’ has been considered but needs a motivating use-case, see https://github.com/timstaley/voevent-parse/issues/5 ) NB this functionality introduces a dependence on Astropy>=1.2.

0.9.7 - 2016/10/31

Identical to 0.96, fixes a packaging issue most likely due to temporary files / dev installation confusing the packager.

0.9.6 - 2016/10/31

Minor bugfix to pull_params: Don’t bork on missing Param name. However, note that if multiple Params are present without a name attribute then this convenience routine doesn’t really make sense - see warning in docs.

0.9.5 - 2016/05/03

Switch to versioneer for version numbering / release tagging. CF https://github.com/warner/python-versioneer
