New IGain interface
Restructuring robotic system.
Added new exceptions.
Use those new exceptions to keep track of errors over time and raise SevereErrors.
Add new state to module, so that a severe error can put a module into an error state.
Added get_state() and get_error_string() methods to modules.
Added Comm implementation for SliXMPP (which should now be default) and moved old comm.xmpp to comm.sleekcmpp.
Using asyncio throughout the project, all method and event handlers are async now, as well as open/close methods.
Got rid of multi-threading as best as possible.
VFS now also uses asyncio.
Fixed a bug with Poetry
Added possibility to use class hierarchy for events, i.e. subscribe to a class and receive all derived events.
Change to Poetry as build system
Guiding modules accept a pipeline now, so more image processors than just Offsets can run.
Renamed ICameraBinning, ICameraExposureTime and ICameraWindow and removed the “Camera” part.
Added meta attribute (temporary storage, not I/O persistent) to Image.
Extracted IImageGrabber from ICamera and renamed expose() to grab_image().
Added new IVideo interface and a corresponding BaseVideo module.
Raising exception, if XmppComm cannot connect to server, allowing for graceful exit.
On shutdown, wait for hanging threads, and kill them after 30 seconds.
Multi-processing for the pipeline, using ccdproc now.
New interface IPointingSeries, giving access to methods at the telescope that support pointing series.
Send logs in thread.
Added concept of image processors that take an Image as parameter and return it after some processing.
Added new NStarOffsets image processor (T. Masur).
Added pipelines that take a list of image processors (see Pipeline mixin).
Re-organized all get_object methods.
Improved type hints throughout the code.
Renamed all coordinated interfaces (IRaDec, etc) to IPointing*, i.e. IPointingRaDec.
Renamed all offset interfaces to IOffsets*, i.e. IOffsetsRaDec.
Renamed IFitsHeaderProvider to IFitsHeaderBefore and also renamed its only method.
Added IFitsHeaderAfter to fetch FITS headers after an exposure as well.
Moved functionality from Module to Object.
New meta data system for images.
Renamed IStoppable to IStartStop.
Added new proxy interfaces in interfaces.proxies. All proxies now derive from these interfaces instead of the original ones.
And a lot more cleanup and re-organization.
Added a Telegram bot module.
Added a module for a Kiosk mode, in which pictures are published on a webpage.
Added new IImageFormats interface for cameras that support multiple ones (e.g. grayscale and color).
Moved more enums into utils.enums, like WeatherSensors and MotionStatus.
Added list_binnings() to IBinning interface and (temporary) default implementation in BaseCamera.
Restructured image processors into pyobs.image.processors.
Split photometry into separate SourceDetection and Photometry interfaces, added DaophotSourceDetection, and PhotUtilsPhotometry.
Sending events non-blocking, which might solve some problems with disappeared XMPP clients.
Added lots of documentation, which included setting __module__ for many classes.
Changed PyObsModule to Module.
Removed possibility for network configs.
Added MultiModule, which allows for multiple modules in one process.
Flat scheduler: add options for readout times.
New OnlineReduction module for reduction during the night.
Fixed bug that sometimes appears in the interface caching for Comm.
LcoTaskArchive: added MoonSeparationConstraint, fixed AirmassConstraint.
Optimized Scheduler by only scheduling blocks that actually have a window in the given range.
Added module Seeing that extracts FWHMs from the catalogs in reduced images and calculated a median seeing.
Introduced concept of Publishers, which can be used to publish data to log, CSV, and hopefully later, database, web, etc.
Created new Object class that handles most of what Module did before so that Module only adds module specific stuff.
Added some convenience methods for reading/writing files to VFS.
Added new IConfig interface which is implemented in every module and allows remote access to config parameters (if getter/setters are implemented).
Removed count parameter from ICamera.expose().
Removed exposure_time parameter from ICamera.expose() and introduced IExposureTime interface.
Removed image_type parameter from ICamera.expose() and introduced IImageType.
Moved ImageType enumerator from ICamera to utils.enums.
Major changes to robotic system based on LCO portal.
Setting filter/window/binning in acquisition.
Added WaitForMotion and Follow mixins.
Added support for flats that don’t directly scale with binning.
New module for acoustic warning when autonomous modules are running.
Improved SepPhotometry by calculating columns used also by LCO.
New interface for Lat/Lon telescopes, e.g. solar telescopes.
Re-factored acquisition modules and added one based on astrometry.
Added combine_binnings parameter to FlatFielder, which triggers, whether to use one function for all binnings or not
Added get_current_weather() to IWeather
New FlatFieldPointing module that can move telescope to a flatfield pointing
Changed requirements in setup.py and put packages that are only required by a server module into [full]
Removed HTTP proxy classes
Some new mixins
working on robotic system based on LCO portal
Added module for bright star acquisition.
Added and changed some FITS header keywords.
Added module for flat-fielding.
Changed some interfaces.
Added basic pipeline.
Started with code that will be used for a full robotic mode.
Re-organized auto-guiding modules.
and many more…
