Hi everyone,

We are happy to announce the release of glue v0.15!

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 http://glueviz.org

Changes in this release

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

  http://docs.glueviz.org/en/stable/whatsnew/whatsnew.html

The most significant changes are as follows:
  • The link editor interface has been improved, and it is now possible to go back and edit existing links
  • The table viewer has been improved to make it possible to show only rows in certain subsets
  • The rendering of the image viewer is now improved when showing multiple datasets together
  • The 3D volume rendering viewers can now show together datasets that are linked but not on the same pixel grid 
  • It is now possible to define functions to automatically identify links of interest in your datasets and have glue suggest them
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.

Installing/updating glue

As usual, we recommend installing glue using the Anaconda Python Distribution. To get the latest version of glue (v0.15), 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=0.15

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
