PyWavelets 1.4.0 Release Notes#

We are very pleased to announce the release of PyWavelets 1.4. This release is a minor update to 1.3.0. It adds wheels for Python 3.11 and drops support for Python 3.7.

There is one new utility function, pywt.frequency2scale, that can be used to determine CWT scale factors corresponding to a given (normalized) frequency. It is the inverse of the existing pywt.scale2frequency.
