Release notes for PyTables 3.7 series¶
Changes from 3.6.1 to 3.7.0¶
Compatibility with Python 3.10, numpy 1.21 and HDF5 1.12.
Windows: Significantly faster import tables PR #781. Thanks to Christoph Gohlke.
Internal C-Blosc sources updated to 1.21.1 (gh-931). Note that, starting from C-Blosc 1.19 does not include the Snappy codec sources anymore, so Snappy will be not available if you compile from included sources; other packages (like conda or wheels), may (or may not) include it.
Stop using appveyor and deprecated ci-helpers (closes gh-827).
Switch to git submodule for the management of vendored c-blosc sources.
CI moved to GitHub Actions (GHA).
Several improvements to wheels generation in CI (thanks to Andreas Motl @amotl and Matthias @xmatthias).
Simplified management of version information.
Drop dependency on the deprecated distutils.
Modernize the setup script and add support for PEP517 (gh-907).
