Hi everyone,

We are happy to announce the release of glue v0.14!

For anyone not familiar with this package, glue is a Python library and application for multidimensional and linked data exploration, which you can find out about at

Changes in this release

An overview of the main changes in this release is available here:

The most significant changes are as follows:
  • The current active subset is now clearly shown in the toolbar at the top of the application window
  • Session files are now saved with relative paths to data files by default
  • Performance has been significantly improved in a number of places, and in particular the profile and histogram viewers will now no longer hang the application if calculating profiles or histograms for large datasets (they will do this in the background)
  • We now provide documentation about available plugins to glue as well as information about developing your own plugin packages.
  • The data layer of glue has been re-thought to make it possible to create data objects that are based on remote or non-cartesian data
You can read about these changes in more detail at the link above. In addition, this release includes many bug fixes and improvements in usability, and we have also done a lot of internal work to facilitate the development of interfaces not based on Qt.

Installing/updating glue

As usual, we recommend installing glue using the Anaconda Python Distribution. To get the latest version of glue (v0.14), you will need to make sure you use the glueviz conda channel. If you are using the conda command, this means that you need to do:

  conda install -c glueviz glueviz=0.14

If you want to use the Anaconda launcher or navigator to install glue without using the command-line, take a look at the instructions on our website to find out how to get the latest version. We also provide instructions for other installation methods, including pip.

Please let us know if you run into any issues installing or using glue - you can either let us know by email (by replying to this email off-list), by opening a GitHub issue, or you can join the glue slack channel and chat with us there.

Thanks to everyone who contributed to this release!

- Thomas Robitaille, on behalf of the glue team
