We are happy to announce the release of wradlib 0.10.0.


Highlight of this release is the implementation of matching of GPM/TRMM-platforms with ground radar observations in 3D. A step-by-step guide is available as jupyter notebook. Also the wradlib raster handling has been improved considerably with PR#137.

Further changes in wradlib 0.10.0

There are also a couple of community enhancements and other improvements and fixes.
