MetPy 0.5.0 released

MetPy 0.5.0 has been released. This release has a wide collection of new features as well as minor bug fixes, including several contributions from our community:

  • API BREAK: lcl() now returns both the pressure and temperature at the lifted condensation level, rather than just pressure. Not only does this simplify the use of lcl, but comes at no additional computation cost.
  • Added support for Python 3.6, dropped Python 3.3 support
  • Galleries of symbols and color tables within the documentation
  • SkewT improvements
    • Better handling of missing data
    • Default limits
    • Dedicated plotting routines for shading CAPE/CIN
    • Better handling of unit-ed arrays
  • Added meteogram and 4 panel plot examples
  • Wind speed and direction available directly from upper air data
  • Additional calculations:
    • virtual_temperature
    • virtual_potential_temperature
    • density
    • el (equilibrium layer)
    • relative_humidity_wet_psychrometric
    • psychrometric_vapor_pressure_wet
  • GINIFile now has an img_extent attribute to simplify plotting
  • Added reduce_point_density function to remove overlapping points from point data plots like StationPlot

For full release notes see the GitHub Release Page. If you're using MetPy for publications, we also now have citation information.

MetPy packages are available for Conda on the conda-forge channel, and for pip from the Python Package Index.

Let us know if you run into any problems, either at MetPy's issue tracker, or on the Unidata python-users list.
