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

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.
