After oemof v0.3.2, we decided to make oemof’s structure more clear: Both, the framework (including e.g. TESPy) and the Package for energy system optimisation (using solph) were called the same – oemof. With the release of v0.4.0, there are now split packages for oemof.solph, oemof.network, and oemof.tools.
With v0.3, the API of the GenericStorage has changed. Due to the open structure of solph, the old parameter names were still accepted, but practically ignored. Therefore users may not notice that a default value is used instead of the value they wanted. Especially after an update from v0.2.x to v0.3.0, code often still runs but produces different results. With the new v0.3.1 release, an error is raised when legacy parameter names are used. We work on a structure to avoid such problems in the future. To update, just:
pip install oemof --upgrade
Approximately 1000 commits since v0.2 have evolved oemof, so that now is the time for a new major “development” release . In the meantime, the number of contributors has almost doubled (to 26). The mix of experienced and new developers helped to further improve structure and documentation. Continue reading “v0.3.0 – Lovely Load”
