Dear ObsPy users,

* obspy.gse2: added GSE1 plain INT32 read support

* obspy.signal.ppsd: new functionality for calculating probabilistic
   noise power spectral densities for station quality control

* obspy.signal.psd: adding a wrapper for matplotlib.psd to have
   consistent calculations for different matplotlib versions

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

All packages mentioned are updated at Python Package Index
(http://pypi.python.org/pypi) and can be updated via easy_install.

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

Many regards,
