Full Changelog

1.3.0 (Unreleased)

New Features

  • Add representation for ImageFileCollection [#475]
  • Added ext parameter and property to ImageFileCollection to specify the FITS extension.[#463]
  • Add keywords.deleter method to ImageFileCollection [#474]
  • Added glob_include and glob_exclude parameter to ImageFileCollection [#484]
  • Add bitfield_to_boolean_mask function to convert a bitfield to a boolean mask (following the numpy conventions). [#460]
  • Added gain_corrected option in ccd_process so that calibration files do not need to previously been gain corrected [#491]
  • Add a new wcs_relax argument to CCDData.to_header() that is passed through to the WCS method of the same name to allow more flexible handing of headers with SIP distortion. [#501]
  • combine now accepts numpy.ndarray as the input img_list. [#493, #503]

Other Changes and Additions

  • removed ability to set ccdata.unit to None [#451]
  • deprecated summary_info property of ImageFileCollection now raises a deprecation warning. [#486]

Bug Fixes

  • ImageFileCollection now handles Headers with duplicated keywords (other than COMMENT and HISTORY) by ignoring all but the first. [#467]

1.2.0 (2016-12-13)

ccdproc has now the following additional dependency:

  • scikit-image.

New Features

  • Add an optional attribute named filenames to ImageFileCollection, so that users can pass a list of FITS files to the collection. [#374, #403]
  • Added block_replicate, block_reduce and block_average functions. [#402]
  • Added median_filter function. [#420]
  • combine now takes an additional combine_uncertainty_function argument which is passed as uncertainty_func parameter to Combiner.median_combine or Combiner.average_combine. [#416]
  • Added ccdmask function. [#414, #432]

Other Changes and Additions

  • ccdprocs core functions now explicitly add HIERARCH cards. [#359, #399, #413]
  • combine now accepts a dtype argument which is passed to Combiner.__init__. [#391, #392]
  • Removed CaseInsensitiveOrderedDict because it is not used in the current code base. [#428]

Bug Fixes

  • The default dtype of the combine-result doesn’t depend on the dtype of the first CCDData anymore. This also corrects the memory consumption calculation. [#391, #392]
  • ccd_process now copies the meta of the input when subtracting the master bias. [#404]
  • Fixed combine with CCDData objects using StdDevUncertainty as uncertainty. [#416, #424]

1.1.0 (2016-08-01)

New Features

  • Add an additional combination method, clip_extrema, that drops the highest and/or lowest pixels in an image stack. [#356, #358]

Other Changes and Additions

  • cosmicray_lacosmic default satlevel changed from 65536 to 65535. [#347]
  • Auto-identify files with extension fts as FITS files. [#355, #364]
  • Raise more explicit exception if unit of uncalibrated image and master do not match in subtract_bias or subtract_dark. [#361, #366]
  • Updated the Combiner class so that it could process images with >2 dimensions. [#340, #375]

Bug Fixes

  • Combiner creates plain array uncertainties when using``average_combine`` or median_combine. [#351]
  • flat_correct does not properly scale uncertainty in the flat. [#345, #363]
  • Error message in weights setter fixed. [#376]

1.0.1 (2016-03-15)

The 1.0.1 release was a release to fix some minor packaging issues.

1.0.0 (2016-03-15)

General

  • ccdproc has now the following requirements:
    • Python 2.7 or 3.4 or later.
    • astropy 1.0 or later
    • numpy 1.9 or later
    • scipy
    • astroscrappy
    • reproject

New Features

  • Add a WCS setter for CCDData. [#256]
  • Allow user to set the function used for uncertainty calculation in average_combine and median_combine. [#258]
  • Add a new keyword to ImageFileCollection.files_filtered to return the full path to a file [#275]
  • Added ccd_process for handling multiple steps. [#211]
  • CCDData.write now writes multi-extension-FITS files. The mask and uncertainty are saved as extensions if these attributes were set. The name of the extensions can be altered with the parameters hdu_mask (default extension name 'MASK') and hdu_uncertainty (default 'UNCERT'). CCDData.read can read these files and has the same optional parameters. [#302]

Other Changes and Additions

  • Issue warning if there are no FITS images in an ImageFileCollection. [#246]
  • The overscan_axis argument in subtract_overscan can now be set to None, to let subtract_overscan provide a best guess for the axis. [#263]
  • Add support for wildcard and reversed FITS style slicing. [#265]
  • When reading a FITS file with CCDData.read, if no data exists in the primary hdu, the resultant header object is a combination of the header information in the primary hdu and the first hdu with data. [#271]
  • Changed cosmicray_lacosmic to use astroscrappy for cleaning cosmic rays. [#272]
  • CCDData arithmetic with number/Quantity now preserves any existing WCS. [#278]
  • Update astropy_helpers to 1.1.1. [#287]
  • Drop support for Python 2.6. [#300]
  • The add_keyword parameter now has a default of True, to be more explicit. [#310]
  • Return name of file instead of full path in ImageFileCollection generators. [#315]

Bug Fixes

  • Adding/Subtracting a CCDData instance with a Quantity with a different unit produced wrong results. [#291]
  • The uncertainty resulting when combining CCDData will be divided by the square root of the number of combined pixel [#309]
  • Improve documentation for read/write methods on CCDData [#320]
  • Add correct path separator when returning full path from ImageFileCollection.files_filtered. [#325]

0.3.3 (2015-10-24)

New Features

  • add a sort method to ImageFileCollection [#274]

Other Changes and Additions

  • Opt in to new container-based builds on travis. [#227]
  • Update astropy_helpers to 1.0.5. [#245]

Bug Fixes

  • Ensure that creating a WCS from a header that contains list-like keywords (e.g. BLANK or HISTORY) succeeds. [#229, #231]

0.3.2 (never released)

There was no 0.3.2 release because of a packaging error.

0.3.1 (2015-05-12)

New Features

  • Add CCDData generator for ImageCollection [#405]

Other Changes and Additions

  • Add extensive tests to ensure ccdproc functions do not modify the input data. [#208]
  • Remove red-box warning about API stability from docs. [#210]
  • Support astropy 1.0.5, which made changes to NDData. [#242]

Bug Fixes

  • Make subtract_overscan act on a copy of the input data. [#206]
  • Overscan subtraction failed on non-square images if the overscan axis was the first index, 0. [#240, #244]

0.3.0 (2015-03-17)

New Features

  • When reading in a FITS file, the extension to be used can be specified. If it is not and there is no data in the primary extension, the first extension with data will be used.
  • Set wcs attribute when reading from a FITS file that contains WCS keywords and write WCS keywords to header when converting to an HDU. [#195]

Other Changes and Additions

  • Updated CCDData to use the new version of NDDATA in astropy v1.0. This breaks backward compatibility with earlier versions of astropy.

Bug Fixes

  • Ensure dtype of combined images matches the dtype of the Combiner object. [#189]

0.2.2 (2014-11-05)

New Features

Other Changes and Additions

Other Changes and Additions

  • Relaxed the requirements on what the metadata must be. It can be anything dict-like, e.g. an astropy.io.fits.Header, a python dict, an OrderedDict or some custom object created by the user. [#167]

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a new-style formating issue in the logging [#170]

0.2 (2014-07-28)

  • Initial release.
