Dear SeisComP community,
We are happy to finally provide you with the second major SeisComP release version 5.
In contrast to the major release of version 4 this version does not introduce breaking changes. As announced with SeisComP 4.x a new major version will be released when at least the binary compatibility of libraries cannot be guaranteed. This is the case right now. You can continue using your operational database and you can continue using your configuration. A migration to schema 0.12 is required though.
One exception: the VS (virtual seismologist) modules have been removed from the distribution and will be shipped as part of the SED EEW addon, available as source at https://github.com/SED-EEW/SED-EEW-SeisComP-contributions and as pre-compiled package at Index of /packages/Public/sed-eew/.
We hope you will benefit from our developments and enjoy the new features. Thank you for supporting us in advancing SeisComP!
Jan on behalf of the SeisComP development team
