We are happy to announce the release of Taurus 5.0.0.

This is a major release that removes support of Python2 and Qt4 (we now support python >= 3.5 and the PyQt5 and PySide2 bindings). Other than that there should not be any other backwards incompatibility between 5.x and 4.x (we intentionally avoided enforcing the pending deprecations of 4.x even if this is a major version bump) so:

if something works on taurus 4.8 using python3 and Qt5 and it does not work in taurus 5, please report it as a bug

Note for developers: the API documentation has been improved: classes and other members which are not "public" are no longer included in the API docs while all public members should now be included.

This release also improves the module loading times in some situations, and it provides a long-awaited feature: installation-independent config files (no more need of editing tauruscustomsettings.py)

 

The source files can be downloaded from:

    https://pypi.org/project/taurus/5.0.0/

The documentation (including installation instructions for different platforms) is available at:

    http://www.taurus-scada.org

For a detailed list of changes, see the CHANGELOG:

    https://gitlab.com/taurus-org/taurus/-/blob/develop/CHANGELOG.md

If you encounter problems installing or running this release, please open an issue in :

We are happy to announce the release of Taurus 4.8.0.

This release is relatively modest in terms of new functionality
for the end-user because most of the effort was focused on
project migration to gitlab.com and other developer-oriented
improvements.

This is the last release supporting python2 and Qt4. Work has already begun
to prepare the next major version (taurus 5) and therefore taurus 4.8 will
likely be the last in the 4.x series (no new features are expected to land
on the 4.x series after this release).

For those installing with conda, please note that taurus and all its
dependencies are now distributed via the conda-forge channel:

`conda install -c conda-forge taurus taurus_pyqtgraph`

The source files can be downloaded from:

https://pypi.org/project/taurus/4.8.0/

The documentation (including installation instructions for different platforms) is available at:

http://www.taurus-scada.org

For a detailed list of changes, see the CHANGELOG:

...and the Jun21 milestone:

35th Tango Community Meeting Announcement

Dear Tangoers,

Registration and abstracts submission for the 35th Tango Community Meeting are offcicially open.

This two half-days event will be held on September 14th and 15th from 13:30 to 18:30 (CEST). Due to the pandemic situation - and the potential fourth wave - our meeting will be purely virtual.  

This year, the  "projects status" session is opened to any kind of projects - from the biggest to the smallest ones.  Our wish is to give anyone a chance to present his/her work to the community - whatever is the size and/or complexity of the related project. 

The classical Kernel and Tango Ecosystem sessions will also be part of our agenda. By "ecosystem" we mean any Tango-related tool of interest for the community - e.g., language binding, web-technologies, archiving, control system administration, large scale logging, ...  

We also propose a session providing the comminity members with an opportunity to share their Tango user experience.

Several talk formats will be proposed - from 5 minutes "I'd like to let you know" pitches to 15' deeper presentations. 

Please, don't hesitate to submit a talk proposal with a short abstract describing your contribution.

We are looking forward to discover the latest news from the community.

N. Leclercq, R. Bourtembourg, A. Gotz.
 

Autumn 2020 Status webinar

The goal of this  virtual meeting is to keep the community updated on latest developments in the kernel and related tools and to hear reports on community developments and projects.
More than 80 of you were able to attend to the Tango community status meeting which took place over 2 full days, the 17 and 18 of  November 2020.
