MetPy 0.10.0 Released

MetPy 0.10.0 has been released:

  • potential_vorticity_baroclinic was changed to take all 3D variables, with dimensions ordered: vertical, y, x.
  • MetPy has gained a simplified plotting interface designed to mimic that of GEMPAK. It uses a handful of objects on which users set attributes to values to control the plot, requiring data in an xarray DataArray or Dataset. See MetPy's plotting examples for more information.
  • MetPy's xarray accessor now has its own versions of loc and sel that accept unit-ed values.
  • Added an n-point soothing function
  • moist_lapse and dry_lapse now accept an arbitrary starting (reference) pressure value.
  • potential_vorticity_baroclinic now works with data either on isobaric or isentropic surfaces.
  • MetPy now has state borders that match the boundaries of the county borders.
  • SkewT instances can now be created at an arbitrary rectangular location within a figure.
  • MetPy's calculations have been adjusted so that the values of constants can be overridden by changing the values in the constants module.
