SunPy v1.0, the community-developed, free and open-source solar data analysis environment for Python.

Abstract

The SunPy project facilitates and promotes the use and development of several community-led, free, and open source data analysis software packages for solar physics based on the scientific Python environment. The project achieves this goal by developing and maintaining the sunpy core package and supporting an ecosystem of affiliated packages. The SunPy project is pleased to announce the 1.0 release of the sunpy package. This new release is the first stable release of the packages and includes several important new features such as improved data downloading capabilities, a large enhancement in coordinate and coordinate transformations capabilities, new map utility functions, and a new logging functionality amongst others. This talk will present how the sunpy package can be used for solar data analysis and discuss the roadmap for package.
