This document lists the main goals for the upcoming python-caterva releases.


  • Support for variable-length metalayers. This would provide users a lot of flexibility to define their own metadata

  • Resize array dimensions. This feature would allow Caterva to increase or decrease in size any dimension of the arrays.


  • Third-party integration. Caterva need better integration with libraries like:

    • xarray (labeled arrays)

    • dask (computation)

    • napari (visualization)
