I'm happy to announce the release of SEP v0.2.0.

SEP makes available some of the algorithms in Source Extractor as
stand-alone functions and classes. These operate directly on in-memory
arrays (no FITS files, configuration files, etc). The code is derived
directly from the Source Extractor code base.

Changes from v0.1.0:

- new aperture photometry functions
- Kron radius function
- variable detection threshold in object detection
- bug fixes
- better documentation: http://sep.readthedocs.org

Source code: https://github.com/kbarbary/sep

The new version is almost entirely backwards-compatible with v0.1.0, but
there are some deprecations. See

Finally, note that SEP overlaps with some of the functionality in
photutils, and in fact some code originally written for photutils has been
added to SEP. We've discussed including SEP as a "low-level" dependency in
photutils and this release is a step towards enabling that.
