SunPy 2.1February 24, 2021, from Sophie Murray
The SunPy project is happy to announce the release of SunPy 2.1! SunPy is an open-source Python library for solar physics data analysis and visualization. This is an intermediate release between the 2.0 and 3.0 long term support releases. See https://docs.sunpy.org/en/stable/whatsnew/2.1.html for more details.
This release contains some substantial upgrades, primarily to the Fido data search and retrieval tool. There is now support for GOES 16 and 17 XRS 1-second data, JSOC cutouts of regions of interest can be requested, metadata only searches are possible, and results are now returned in AstroPy table objects. Several functions in sunpy.map have been significantly sped up with improved algorithms with this release. Also it is now supported to transform coordinates with attached velocities, and the various ephemeris functions can optionally include velocity information.
