I am happy to announce the release of Py-ART version 1.4.0.

Py-ART is an open source Python module for reading, visualizing,
correcting and analysis of weather radar data.

Documentation : http://arm-doe.github.io/pyart/dev/index.html
GitHub : https://github.com/ARM-DOE/pyart
Pre-build conda binaries:
https://binstar.org/jjhelmus/pyart/files?version=1.4.0

Version 1.4.0 is the result of 4 months of work by 7 contributors.
Thanks to all contributors, especially those who have made their first
contribution to Py-ART.

Highlights of this release:

    * Support for reading and writing MDV Grid files. (thanks to
Anderson Gama)
    * Support for reading GCPEX D3R files. (thanks to Steve Nesbitt)
    * Support for reading NEXRAD Level 3 files.
    * Optional loading of radar field data upon use rather than initial
read.
    * Significantly faster gridding method, "map_gates_to_grid".
    * Improvements to the speed and bug fixes to the region based
dealiasing algorithm.
    * Textures of differential phase fields. (thanks to Scott Collis)
    * Py-ART now can be used with Python 3.3 and 3.4

Cheers,

    - Jonathan Helmus
