Changelog

All notable changes to this project will be documented in this file. This project adheres to Semantic Versioning.

Version 2.2.3

Fix:

  • Unneeded print method introduced in 2.2.0 removed since it caused documentation errors.

Version 2.2.2

Fix:

  • The tutorial data are now downloaded from OSF.

Version 2.2.1

Fix:

  • An error in assigning the atomic number of species starting with ‘n’ that was introduced in 2.2.0 has been fixed.

Version 2.2.0

New:

  • It is now possible to print out newly created XML files to the standard output.
  • The link to webnucleo has been updated.

Fix:

  • An ambiguity in retrieving atomic number, mass number, and state data from a nuclide with name ‘n’ (that is, neutron or nitrogen) has been fixed.

Version 2.1.0

New:

  • It is now possible to parse XML files with XInclude with wnutils.

Version 2.0.1

Fix:

  • A typo in a warning in the get_zone_data() routine has been fixed.

Version 2.0.0

New:

  • It is now possible to add fixed or time-dependent curves to the XML nucleon number and abundance chain movies. The data are added via an array of tuples, which is a backwards incompatible change from the capability added in version 1.10.0.
  • The method to return chain abundances has been promoted to the API.

Fix:

  • The XML method to return all abundances in zones now returns the abundances for all species.

Version 1.10.2

Fix:

  • An error introduced in 1.10.1 in reading zone data has been fixed.

Version 1.10.1

Fix:

  • Parser now treats the nuclide name attribute in zone data as optional, as expected from the schema.

Version 1.10.0

New:

  • It is now possible to add extra curves to the XML nucleon number and abundance chain movies.
  • The animation tutorial has been updated to include information on the abundance chain movie and on adding extra curves.

Fix:

  • Parser now treats the reaction source as optional in the input XML file, as expected from the schema.
  • The assignment of mass number for abundance chain movies has been fixed.

Version 1.9.0

New:

  • A method to create an abundance chain movie has been added.
  • Movie routines now return the animation, and the movie file name is now an optional keyword.

Fix:

  • Mis-assigments of spin and mass excess in the H5 class have been fixed.

Version 1.8.0

New:

  • A method to retrieve the root type of an Xml object has been added.
  • A method to retrieve zone data has been added.
  • A method to retrieve Z, A, and state label from a nuclide name has been added.
  • A link to code samples has been added.

Version 1.7.1

New:

  • A link to the tutorials in Jupyter notebook form has been added.

Fix:

  • Some tutorial typos have been fixed.

Version 1.7.0

New:

  • A new class allows the user to create webnucleo XML and write that XML to a file.

Fix:

  • The reaction rate calculator now computes the reaction rate from rate table data by not extrapolating from lowest and highest temperature values. This means that, for temperatures below the lowest temperature in the table, the rate is computed at the lowest table temperature. Similarly, for temperatures above the highest temperature in the table, the rate is computed at the highest table temperature. This treatment is in agreement with how libnucnet computes rates from rate tables.

Version 1.6.0

New:

  • A method to validate the XML against libnucnet schemas has been added.

Fix:

  • State data is now parsed from XML correctly.
  • An error in creating IUPAC element names has been fixed.

Version 1.5.2

Fix:

  • The license attribute string has been shortened.
  • A typo in the tutorials has been fixed.

Version 1.5.1

Fix:

  • An error in constructing species names has been fixed.

Version 1.5.0

New:

  • State labels are now rendered as subscripts in species latex names.

Version 1.4.4

Fix:

  • The markdown indicator in setup.py has been fixed.

Version 1.4.3

Fix:

  • The XPath expressions in some routines have been fixed.

Version 1.4.2

Fix:

  • Nuclide naming for neutron and di-neutron has been fixed.

Version 1.4.1

Fix:

  • Storage for a single fit for a Non-Smoker rate entry has been fixed.

Version 1.4.0

New:

  • It is now possible to retrieve reaction data from webnucleo xml files and compute rates for standard rate functions.

Version 1.3.0

New:

  • It is now possible to set plot method arguments as a tuple giving an argument and a dictionary of optional keyword arguments.

Version 1.2.2

Fix:

  • An XPath error in an xml routine has been fixed.
  • A number of typos in the tutorials have been fixed.
  • The name of an h5 movie routine has been changed to better reflect its purpose.

Version 1.2.1

Fix:

  • A logical error in an h5 routine has been fixed.

Version 1.2.0

New:

  • Routines to create certain movies have been added.

Fix:

  • Some tutorial typos have been fixed and some missing text has been added.

Version 1.1.1

Internal:

  • An integer type error has been fixed.

Version 1.1.0

New:

  • The nuclear partition function data for each nuclide have been added to the nuclear data output.
  • It is now possible to retrieve the abundances of all nuclides in zones or a subset of zones in the xml namespace.
  • It is now possible to retrieve the network limits in the xml namespace.

Internal:

  • XPath selection of zones has been improved.

Version 1.0.0

New:

  • Initial release
