Version 0.4.0 of ChiantiPy

Release Notes: This release adds the class radLoss to calculate radiative losses and plot the results. The method ion.popPlot now plots a histogram of level populations if only a single value of temperature and density are specified. Previously, it expected multiple temperatures or densities. A number of bugfixes have been made.

Release Notes: This is another bugfix release. The methods and functions for calculating ionization cross section were never properly implemented, and this has been corrected. The calculation of ionization rate coefficients were performed correctly. Errors in the calculation of photo-excitation and stimulated emission have been corrected.

    Release Notes: This release accommodates the changes made in 7.1 of the CHIANTI atomic database. In addition, there is a new method "emissList" that allows one to print out a list of lines in a given wavelength range. Also, there is a new keyword "wvlRanges" for the chianti.ion.intensityRatio method that allows the user to determine intensity ratios for lines that are widely separated in wavelength. The documentation has been updated and describes these features in the "Quick-Start" guide.
