Spyke Viewer 0.2.0 released

We are pleased to announce the first public release of Spyke Viewer: A multi-platform, open source GUI application for navigating, analyzing and visualizing electrophysiological datasets (obtained from experiments or simulations). It is designed to be user friendly, flexible and easily extensible.

Spyke Viewer is based on Neo and supports more than a dozen data formats. It includes functionality for  loading, saving, navigating and filtering Neo object hierarchies and performing operations on selected data. Spyke Viewer uses the most recent version of Neo (0.2.1) which was released last week and includes a number of bug fixes and improvements.

An integrated Python console allows for interactive exploration of the data. Various plugins for common neuroscientific plots (e.g. raster plot, PSTH, correlogram) are included. Creating or modifying analysis plugins is a very simple process. Using the integrated editor and command history, useful plugins can be created in minutes. For data formats not supported by Neo, IO extensions can be implemented.
