QCoDeS 0.37.0 (2023-01-26)
InstrumentBase.ancestorsnow returns a tuple of ancestors to the current Instrument, InstrumentChannel or InstrumentModule and not a list.
dond ``, ``do1detc. now returns tuples of Matplotlib axes and colorbars when plotting and not lists. (#4894)
Datasets are now exported to a folder next to the database by default rather then to the users home folder. Note that if you had specifically configured this in a local config file this should be updated too for the change to take effect. (#4899)
DriverTestCase has been moved from qcodes.instrument_drivers.test to qcodes.tests.driver_test_case. (#4922)
qcodes.instrument_drivers.VoltageDivider and qcodes.instrument_drivers.devices.VoltageDivider has been deprecated. Its functionality is better implemented in qcodes.parameters.DelegateParameter which is also significantly better tested and more general. (#4923)
The QDevil QDAC 1 driver has been migrated to qcodes_contrib_drivers and is included from version 0.18.0. The driver in QCoDeS is deprecated and will be removed in a future release. (#4932)
Remove deprecated Mercury iPS driver
1.13is now supported. (#4895)
DelegateParameternow also validates the given value against the validator of the source parameter (if source parameter is present). (#4870)
The dataset logic has been updated to ensure that if you set an already completed dataset as completed the completion timestamp will not be updated. (#4876)
Update the pyqtgraph plot backend for upstream changes in pyqtgraph. (#4886)
QcoDeS is now typechecked with Pyright in addition to mypy. This should give a significantly better user experience when working in VS Code. (#4938)
The Minicircuits USB SPDT driver now supports running with the more modern version of the driver DLL mcl_RF_Switch_Controller_NET45.dll (#4623)
- Two parameters are added to the Keysight.N51x1 class, conditioned on it having the ‘UNW’ option:
Having the pulse modulation status on or off.
Setting it to ‘internal’ or ‘external’.
- From the Keysight manual:
This command enables or disables pulse modulation for the selected path.
This command sets the source of the pulse modulation. (#4840)
Under the hood:
Improve performance of parameter validator. (#4887)
