Iminuit v2.0 Release

Dear all,

I am happy to announce the release of iminuit v2.0, the Python interface for ROOT’s Minuit2 library. You can install iminuit standalone using pip install iminuit in a few seconds (we provide binary wheels for all major platforms and Python versions). iminuit is documented on RTD.

iminuit v2.0 is a huge change and improvement compared to the v1.x series with

  • a big cleanup of the interface
  • a now solid software foundation under the hood (switching from Cython to pybind11)
  • a range of new features
  • a complete documentation

If you have never used iminuit before, now is a great time to start. The new iminuit is easier to learn and use than ever before and there is an extensive range of documentation and tutorials to get you started. iminuit has been popular in the astroparticle community for many years.

Also see my earlier post with some details what iminuit is and what it is not:
