1.4.0 - May 26, 2016¶
This release adds several new features, fixes numerous small bug-fixes, and improves performance for common use cases. There are some minor breaking changes, but few user are likely to encounter them. The most important changes in this release are:
- There is now a
TableSet.having()method, which behaves similarly to SQL’s
Table.from_csv()is much faster. In particular, the type inference routines for parsing numbers have been optimized.
Table.compute()method now accepts a
replacekeyword which allows new columns to replace existing columns “in place.”” (As with all agate operations, a new table is still created.)
- There is now a
Slugcomputation which can be used to compute a column of slugs. The
Table.rename()method has also added new options for slugifying column and row names.
The complete list of changes is as follows:
- Added a deprecation warning for
patchmethods. New extensions should not use it. (#594)
utils.slugify()to standardize a sequence of strings. (#466)
Table.__init__()now prints row and column on

1.3.1 - March 30, 2016¶

1.3.0 - February 28, 2016¶
This version implements several new features and includes two major breaking changes.
Please take note of the following breaking changes:
- There is no longer a
Lengthaggregation. The more obvious
Countis now used instead.
- Agate’s replacements for Python’s CSV reader and writer have been moved to the
agate.csvnamespace. To use as a drop-in replacement:
from agate import csv.
The major new features in this release are primarly related to transforming (reshaping) tables. They are:
Table.normalize()for converting columns to rows.
Table.denormalize()for converting rows to columns.
Table.pivot()for generating “crosstabs”.
Table.homogenize()for filling gaps in data series.
Please see the following complete list of changes for a variety of other bug fixes and improvements.

1.2.0 - January 18, 2016¶
This version introduces one breaking change, which is only relevant if you are using custom
Computationhas been modified so that
Tableinstance as its argument, rather than a single row. It must return a sequence of values to use for a new column. In addition, the
Computation._prepare()method has been renamed to
Computation.validate()to more accurately describe it’s function. These changes were made to facilitate computing moving averages, streaks and other values that require data for the full column.
Aggregationsubclasses have been updated to use
Aggregate.validate(). (This brings a noticeable performance boost.)
Aggregationnow has a
Aggregation.validate()method that functions identically to
Change.validate()now correctly raises
- Added a
SimpleMovingAverageimplementation to the cookbook’s examples of custom

1.1.0 - November 4, 2015¶
This version of agate introduces three major changes.
TableSet.from_csv()now all take
column_typesas separate arguments instead of as a sequence of tuples. This was done to enable more flexible type inference and to streamline the API.

Table.compute()have been changed. In both cases the new column name now comes first. Aggregations have also been modified so that the input column name is an argument to the aggregation class, rather than a third element in the tuple.

DataType.jsonify()methods for serializing native values.
