It has been a busy year but a lot of code later SunPy version 0.2.0 has arrived! This new version of SunPy is quite a change from the old 0.1 release, a few things have changed that make it not backwards compatible, however we feel that the changes are for the better! 14 people have helped to make this release of SunPy a big step forwards, between them they have added 1200 commits to the GitHub page.
Below is the main features that have been added for this release:
