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 (
* 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
* `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.
