eups distrib install lsst_sims -t sims will now get you version 2.3.5 of the lsst_sims stack.
Changes since version 2.3.4:
sims_movingObjects is no longer a part of lsst_sims. If you want to install sims_movingObjects, you will have to run
eups distrib install sims_movingObjects -t sims. This means that lsst_sims no longer depends on oorb or gfortran.
sims_catUtils now includes a model for M, L, and T dwarf flares. This is accessible from the
VariabilityStars mixin in
from lsst.sims.catUtils.mixins import VariabilityStars
Various plot- and movie-generating scripts in sims_maf are now python 3 compatible.
Note: You still need to make sure that your
~.astropy/config/astropy.cfg file has
log_to_file=False in order for the build to pass. This will hopefully be fixed in the next release.
This version is built against the weekly tag w.2017.18 of the DM stack.
