DataLab v0.15 Released

Hello everyone,

We’re excited to announce the release of DataLab v0.15!

Note that the v0.15.1 release fixes a very annoying issue on macOS (screen flickering when switching from a signal/image object to another).

DataLab is an open-source platform for scientific and technical data processing and visualization, based on NumPy, SciPy, … and Qt.

It’s extendable with plugins, and works seamlessly as a complementary tool with your IDE (e.g. #Spyder, VSCode, …) and Project Jupyter notebooks.

Once again, this release is the result of the feedback and contributions of our early adopters. We’re grateful for your support and look forward to your continued insights.

:boom: New Features:

  • Added support for large CSV/text files (when opening or importing data in Signal Panel, for example). Need to work on a GB file ? No worry, DataLab won’t freeze

  • New auto downsampling feature for visualizing large signals – handling 100Mpts signals without slowing down the user experience!

  • New MSI installer (replacing the old EXE installer for the stand-alone version on Windows) to avoid false positive detection by antiviral software

:bulb: You have a project or a use case in mind? (we can even write a tutorial for you…) You want to contribute? We’d love to hear from you!

So please, don’t hesitate to contact us or to open an issue (Sign in to GitHub · GitHub) on our GitHub project for any request or question.

Thank you for taking the time to read my announcement. Looking forward to your thoughts.
