Hi all,

It fills us with astronomical joy to announce the release of poliastro 
0.12.0! 🚀

poliastro is a pure Python library that allows you to simulate and 
analyze interplanetary orbits in a Jupyter notebook in an interactive 
and easy way, used in academia and the industry by people from all 
around the world. You can install it using pip or conda:

conda install poliastro --channel conda-forge
pip install poliastro[jupyter]

This major release brought lots of new features, several breaking 
changes that improve the overall consistency of the library, and a 
stronger bet on Plotly as the default plotting backend, as well as the 
usual bug fixes. This has been the biggest release in terms of 
contributors so far and we feel we are reaching a tipping point, which 
makes us extremely proud and also busier!

You can read the full release notes in the documentation:
