Dear colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the release of ccdproc v1.0.

Ccdproc is is an Astropy affiliated package for basic data
reduction of CCD images.    Besides basic  data reduction, some of
the useful features in ccdproc include:

- propogation of uncertainties and tracking of bad pixels
- ImageFileCollections for easy sorting images by FITS keywords
- combination of images based on WCS
- easily built pipelines

The new release features many updates that provide it with nearly all
basic features available in other data reduction packages such as
IRAF.    We expect this version to have a stable API and long term
support for bug fixes.
