Release 0.10.0#

We are happy to announce the release of \(\omega radlib\) 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 \(\omega radlib\) raster handling has been improved considerably with PR#137.
