Hello web services users,

We are pleased to announce the release of version 2.0.0 of the MATLAB irisFetch.m utility. This version is compatible with recently released FDSN versions of our core web services1. Older versions of these services will be turned off at the end of this year, at which time irisFetch v1.x will cease to function.

Retrieve irisFetch.m from the software download page:

Notable Changes (See revision history for a complete list2 ):
IrisFetch 2.0.0 requires IRIS-WS java library 2.0.x (Released May 9th)
Greatly improved performance when retrieving large traces
New functions allow stations to be retrieved as arrays of Networks, Channels, or Stations without having to use flattenToChannel or flattenToStation.
Returned structs may differ due to changes in the underlying formats. Where possible, backwards compatibility was preserved.

1 FDSN web services replace ws-bulkdataselect, ws-dataselect, ws-event and ws-station
