0.10.0 (2022-11-04)

  • Generalize ensemble datasets configuration.
    • Datasets usable by ensemble processes are now specified through a YAML file which is pointed to in the configuration.

  • Change all outputs to use output as the main output field name (instead of output_netcdf).

  • Updated to xclim 0.37:

    • Percentile inputs of xclim indicators have been renamed with generic names, excluding an explicit mention to the target percentile.

    • In ensemble processes, these percentiles can now be chosen through perc_[var] inputs. The default values are inherited from earlier versions of xclim.

  • Average shape process downgraded to be single-threaded, as ESMF seems to have issues with multithreading.

  • Removed deprecated processes subset_ensemble_bbox_BCCAQv2, subset_ensemble_BCCAQv2 and BCCAQv2_heat_wave_frequency_gridpoint.

  • Added csv_precision to all processes allowing CSV output. When given, it controls the number of decimal places in the output.
