ANN: Pytables 2.0 beta1 (hierarchical datasets) released

 Announcing PyTables 2.0b1

The PyTables development team is very happy to announce the public
availability of the first *beta* version of PyTables 2.0.  Starting with
this release, both the API and the file format have entered in the stage
of freezing (i.e. nothing will be modified unless something is clearly
*wrong*), so people can use it in order to begin with the migration of
their existing PyTables 1.x scripts as well as start enjoying the new
exciting features in this major version ;)

You can download a source package of the version 2.0b1 with

be fairly up-to-date though.
