We are pleased to announce the release of ATpy 0.9.6!

ATpy is a high-level Python package providing a generic Table class that
can contain data and meta-data, and includes column manipulation, row
selection, and sorting methods. In addition, read and write methods are
provided to seamlessly read and write table data to a number of formats,
building on existing Python modules. More information and links to
download the latest version of ATpy can be found at

In addition to a number of bug fixes, this version now makes it easy to
open files using http:// and ftp:// URLs as filenames, and to expand
gzip and bzip2-compressed data on-the-fly. In addition, ATpy 0.9.6
should be fully Python 3 compatible!

To update using pip:

  pip install --upgrade atpy

Alternatively, if you use MacPorts to manage your Python installation,
you can do for example:

  sudo port selfupdate
  sudo port upgrade py27-atpy

Please do not hesitate to let us know if you encounter any problems with
this release,


Thomas Robitaille and Eli Bressert
