    • Tested compatibility with most major Linux distributions still
      receiving updates.

      dates (larger than 2038, often seen in StationXML end dates,
      see #805)
    • Support for basic custom namespace tags in QuakeML I/O (see #454)
    • interpolate() method for Stream/Trace objects.
    • Dictionary values added to an AttribDict will now be converted to an

    • The wrap_long_string utility function is deprecated. Users may use the
      textwrap module which provides similar functionality.
    • new plugin for CNV event format (used by VELEST) for
      Catalog/Event.write() (see obspy.cnv and #905)
    • better customizable control during merging traces with sub-sample shift of

      obspy.imaging.maps.plot_basemap() (see #753).
    • The projections of Catalog.plot() have been modified slightly to provide
      equal-area projections:
      • The "cyl" projection is now named "global". It is now the Mollweide
        projection.
      • The '"local"` projection now uses the Albers Equal Area projection.
  • obspy.kinemetrics

        about the last record in the file was displayed (see #957). Now a
        proper error message is shown and the command line script exits
        with non-zero exit code.

      • Added option "-a" to print information of all records
    • upgrade to libmseed 2.15
