It is with great pleasure that we announce the first official release of PyGMT v0.1.0!
PyGMT is a Python interface for the Generic Mapping Tools. This release marks the result of months if not years of work from @leouieda, @seisman and the rest of the PyGMT team. Here are a few highlights from this release:
- Python 3.8 is now supported (#398)
- PyGMT now uses the stable version of GMT 6.0.0 by default (#363)
- Use sphinx-gallery to manage examples and tutorials (#268)
The full list of changes can be found in the changelog, including a list of all contributors. Installation instructions can be found at https://www.pygmt.org/v0.1.0/install.html. We’re happy to say that not only is the
pygmt package on PyPI, but also conda-forge too (Linux/MacOS only)!
Disclaimer: The package package is still undergoing rapid development, and the API is subject to change in future releases. We are particularly aware that Windows users will encounter installation issues, and are working on it at https://github.com/GenericMappingTools/pygmt/pull/313.
