I'm pleased to announce a relatively major release of Caterva. With this, the API is becoming much more mature and hopefully it is not going to change a lot in the future. You are kindly invited to have this a try, but remember that, even Caterva is very usable already, this is still in alpha stage.
Now the announcement:
# Announcing Caterva 0.3.2: a simple multidimensional container for compressed data
## What is new?
Big code and API refactorization. As result, the API is more consistent and hopefully more intuitive to use. For more info on the new API, see https://caterva.readthedocs.io
For more info, please see the release notes in:
## What is it?
Caterva is an open source C library and a format that allows to store large multidimensional,
chunked, compressed datasets.
Data can be stored either in-memory or on-disk, but the API to handle both versions is the same.
Compression is handled transparently for the user by adopting the Blosc2 library.
