Dear web service users,

we just released a new ObsPy Version, ObsPy 0.9.0. The new key features are full support for the FDSN StationXML format including the calculation of instrument responses directly from StationXML files and support for the FDSN web services.

If you used the ObsPy suite to download data from IRIS you will need to upgrade to the new version as most old webservices have been deprecated/retired in favor of the FDSN web services.

A short guide on migrating an existing code to ObsPy 0.9.0 and examples for how to use the FDSN web services with ObsPy can be found here:

Full changelog:

The new release is up on PyPi (including Windows binaries) and the Debian/Ubuntu packages have also been updated. The OSX Application will be updated in the course of the week - if you installed ObsPy via other means you can already upgrade.

Installation guides for various platforms can be found in the wiki:

All the best and let us know if you experience any problems,

the ObsPy Development Team
