Log of Major Tutorial Updates

How to find version histories

Notebook tutorials

All Jupyter Notebook tutorial headers contain the date “last verified to run”. If the date in the file you are using does not match the date shown in that file in the “prod” branch of the tutorial-notebooks repository, your version is out of date. Follow the instructions for what to do if notebooks do not automatically update in the Troubleshooting tips.

A full history for all tutorial notebooks can be accessed in GitHub via this direct link to the commit log for the tutorial-notebooks repository.

The full history for any given tutorial notebook can be accessed via GitHub by going to the notebook of interest (e.g., the introduction to DP0.2 notebook), and clicking on “history” (near upper-right).

Portal and command line tutorials

All Portal and command line tutorials contain the date last verified to run near the top of their page.

All tutorials for the Portal aspect, and for the command line (Notebook Aspect) are kept in the dp0-2_lsst_io repository.

The full history for any given tutorial can be accessed via GitHub by going to the tutorial of interest (e.g., the beginner Portal tutorial), and clicking on “history” (near upper-right).

Major Updates Log

June 1 2023

The recommended image of the RSP at data.lsst.cloud was bumped to Weekly 2023_21.

In notebooks 02 and 06b, deprecated Bokeh keyword arguments “plot_height” and “plot_width” were replaced with “height” and “width”. The same two notebooks were updated to cast the objectId to a string, because Bokeh was not able to handle such large integers.

An update that was required in many notebooks was replacing “get_tap_service()” with “get_tap_service(“tap”)” (due to deprecation of the former syntax).

Finally, calls to the deprecated method “butler.getDirect()” were replaced with “butler.get()” in a few places.

Released Portal tutorials 04 and 05.

Feb 16 2023

The recommended image of the RSP at data.lsst.cloud was bumped to Weekly 2023_07.

Notebooks 09a and 09b have been temporarily removed from the tutorial-notebooks repository and are undergoing major redevelopment to start the reprocessing for custom coadds at earlier stages of the pipeline.

Notebook 04b, Section 3.3.1 has been updated to show a plot of the bounding boxes of patches which overlap with a calexp.

Notebook 06a, Section 2.1 has been updated to use calexp.visitInfo.id and calexp.filter.bandLabel.

Many notebooks have had minor updates to use SELECT TOP instead of MAXREC (the latter produces an unavoidable but non-fatal warning) and/or remove the use of the %%time magic as all code cells now have an execution time display built-in.
