Title: LingPy-1.0 Released
Submitter: Johann-Mattis List
Description: LingPy is a suite of open-source Python modules for sequence comparison,
distance analyses, data operations and visualization methods in
quantitative historical linguistics.

The main idea of LingPy is to provide a software package which, on the one
hand, integrates different methods for data analysis in quantitative
historical linguistics within a single framework, and, on the other hand,
serves as an interface for the preparation and analysis of linguistic data
using biological software packages.

LingPy-1.0 was now officially released. For more information, see
http://lingulist.de/lingpy/index.html. The software can be downloaded from
