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