Spring fever (learning how to test properly)

There was a little difference that made the examples run in the last release if you installed oemof locally but not if you installed it from pypi. Thus, they did not work with version 0.1.2.

Now we learned how to test them properly, applied a hotfix and released two versions again, due to superstitions (1.3 is almost a 13). The actual version is now v.0.1.4. It is not true but a nice story and due to the open philosophy errors like these fortunately show up really quick :smirk:

Have a look at the 0.1.2 release to see the real changes and stay tuned!

We proudly present the totally revised version of oemof!

Now oemof is more flexible, better documented and ready to join for new contributors and users.

feedinlib’s pv model works again with v0.0.9

Due to some changes in the pvlib API, we had to adapt the pv model of the feedinlib. Now everything works fine again.

Together with the pvlib we are planing to reduce the code of feedinlib’s pv model and move missing functionalities directly to the pvlib. This will avoid incompatibility problems in the future.

oemof at the the 4th openmod meeting – short talk and discussions

The GitHub presence and the new structure of oemof was presented at the 4th openmod meeting at KTH in Stockholm along with 16 other short talks of the international community. Many common working fields have been detected and discussed which will hopefully be continued in the coming months.
