Hello all,

The SunPy project is very happy to announce the release of SunPy 0.9, 
the latest release of the SunPy core package.

SunPy 0.9 brings improved support for downloading data from the JSOC 
<http://jsoc.stanford.edu/> and bugfixes compared to the 0.8.x series of 
releases. The 0.9.x series will be the last series of SunPy releases to 
support Python 2. This is because Python 2 will not be maintained after 
2019 <https://python3statement.org/>. The 0.9.x series will receive 
bugfixs only up until the and of life of Python 2 (around 18 months), 
and will also be the last version to include sunpy.spectra, 
sunpy.lightcurve and sunpy.wcs, all of which were deprecated in 0.8.

SunPy v0.9.0 contains 807 commits in 147 merged pull requests closing 
310 issues from 31 people, 19 of which are first time contributors to 
SunPy. For more details on What's new in 0.9
