ObsPy release 0.5.0

Dear ObsPy users,

we are proud to announce the release of version 0.5.0 aka "AGU2011
special edition" of all ObsPy modules, except obspy.fissures. The
latter is tagged as version 0.4.7 and removed from trunk as it is not
official supported any more from us. If you are still using
obspy.fissure I suggest to take a look into obspy.iris instead.

As usual all (new) features are documented at http://docs.obspy.org.

All packages are uploaded to the Python Package Index
(http://pypi.python.org/pypi) and can now be updated via easy_install.
See the installation section at the ObsPy homepage for further

Please note: Many deprecated methods have been removed. Keep that in
mind in case any of your programs do not run as expected any more.

Please report any bug or installation issues either to this mailing
list or preferable via the ticket system on http://www.obspy.org.

Best regards,

PS: Don't miss the chance to meet us at the AGU Fall Meeting! Tobias
Megies will be present with a poster (S51A-2189) in Session S51A
(Catalogs, Networks, and Instruments I Posters) on Friday (8 am -
12:20 pm). So, take the opportunity to discuss recent developments,
future plans and ways to contribute to the project! At least get him a
free beer :wink:
