Hello everyone! Just so that you know, we have released
dolfyn 1.0! This is a MAJOR REFACTOR of the code so that DOLfYN is
now built on xarray, rather than the somewhat contrived and
This means that DOLfYN 1.0 is not backwards compatible with earlier version. This, in turn, means two things:
.h5files) you created with earlier versions of DOLfYN will no longer load with DOLfYN 1.0.0.
Because of this, it's probably easiest to continue using earlier
versions of DOLfYN for your old data. If you want to bring some data
into DOLfYN 1.0, you will need to
dolfyn.read(binary_source_file.ext), and then refactor your code to
work properly with DOLfYN's new syntax. I may be providing some
updates to dolfyn 0.12 via the v0.12-backports branch (and associated
releases), but I doubt that will last long. If you are
using 0.13, we recommend switching to 1.0.
Very sorry that we didn't communicate the plan for this change, but the truth is that we simply don't know who our users are. The good news is that I think in the long run this will make DOLfYN a much more robust, powerful, and compatible tool -- especially because we now write/load xarray-formatted netcdf4 files, which is becoming a standard.
A HUGE THANK YOU to @jmcvey3 who did the vast majority of the work to make this happen.
DOLfYN is the Doppler Oceanography Library for pYthoN.
It is designed to read and work with Acoustic Doppler Velocimeter (ADV) and Acoustic Doppler Profiler (ADP/ADCP) data. DOLfYN includes libraries for reading binary Nortek(tm) and Teledyne RDI(tm) data files.
For details visit the DOLfYN homepage.
DOLfYN requires Python 3.7 or later and a number of dependencies. See the install page for greater details.
