MetPy 0.9.1 Released

MetPy 0.9.1 has been released. New features of the 0.9 series include:

  • Renamed get_wind_speed to wind_speed; the old name is still available but is deprecated and will be removed in 0.12
  • Renamed get_wind_dir to wind_direction; the old name is still available but is deprecated and will be removed in 0.12
  • Renamed get_wind_components to wind_components; the old name is still available but is deprecated and will be removed in 0.12
  • Added support for cross-sections along arbitrary lat/lon paths
  • Added parcel_profile_with_lcl to compute the parcel profile and return values for the parcel profile, as well as the ambient pressure, temperature, and dew point that includes the lcl
  • Fixed corner case problems in some thermodynamic calculations by using parcel profiles including the LCL
  • Added function to get a matplotlib color from a GEMPAK color number
  • Added CartoPy map feature for U.S. counties
  • get_test_data will now automatically download and cache data files if the user is not running a git checkout of MetPy. This makes all of our test/example data much more easily available.
  • Added smooth_gaussian, which smooths a grid using a Gaussian distribution-shaped kernel; this is an analog of GEMPAK's gwfs
  • Fixed error reading newer NEXRAD Level 2 files
