#release pyam v1.2.0 - faster package, published manuscript #release

Daniel Huppmann

Dear pyam user community, happy to announce a new release v1.2 of the pyam package!

The new release has some improvements „under the hood“, aiming to make the package faster when reading large data files. We also started a profiler-module, to make it easier to work on further performance increases.

Warning: Note that there is a change in the required version of the xlrd package - no worries if you install from pypi or conda, but make sure to install the latest version of xlrd if you are working with an editable installation in a GitHub-cloned folder.

In other news, the manuscript in Open Research Europe was approved by the reviewers! The manuscript highlights how pyam relates to other tools used in the IAM, macro-energy and energy systems community, the design principles of the package, as well as several recent use cases… https://open-research-europe.ec.europa.eu/articles/1-74

See Figure 1 below of how we see pyam - a useful bridge between highly customized modelling frameworks and general-purpose data analysis and plotting packages.
