Dear Pythonistas and solar power enthusiasts,

On behalf of the maintainers, we're happy to announce a new release of pvlib python: software for simulating performance of photovoltaic solar energy systems.

See what's new for v0.9.0:

Releases are available from PyPI and the conda-forge channel:

Read the Documentation:

Report issues & contribute:

Highlights:
* There are some breaking changes, so please read the Release Notes carefully before updating.
* pvlib now has a new Array class that represents groups of identical modules that are part of a PVSystem but have the same orientation and mounting type.
* The PVSystem class can now model a combination of arrays each with different orientations, modules, and mounting types.
* pvlib completed a very successful GSoC, which added several new iotools like get_bsrn(), get_pvgis_hourly(), get_cams(), and more. Special thanks to Adam R. Jensen, Kevin Anderson, and many reviewers who helped!
* Many bug fixes including a fix to Perez contributed by Clean Power Research. Read their blog to learn more about how they're contributing to pvlib. Thanks!

The maintainers thank you for using pvlib python!
