SunPy 0.6.1 Released#

Announcing the 0.6.1 “thesis submission” release of SunPy. This is a bug fix release and contains the following fixes to things that slipped past us into 0.6:

  • Fixed MapCube animations by working around a bug in Astropy’s ImageNormalize

  • SunPy can now be installed without having to install Astropy first.

  • MapCubes processed with coalignment.apply_shifts now have correct metadata.

  • Multiple fixes for WCS transformations, especially with solar-x, solar-y CTYPE headers.

This release is available through either conda or pip, you can update with either:

conda update sunpy


pip update sunpy

depending upon how you have sunpy installed.

Happy Pythoning, Stuart
