Hello all!

I am very pleased to announce that we have just released MNE-BIDS 0.6!

These are challenging days for many of us, and to make your lives ever so
slightly easier, we’ve been working hard to deliver this early Christmas
present 🎁 And even if you do not celebrate Christmas, we are quite certain
you will like what we got for you! So – what are you waiting for? It’s time
to unwrap!

What is MNE-BIDS?

MNE-BIDS is a Python package that allows you to read and write
datasets with the help of MNE-Python. The project website is located at

Why would you want it?

MNE-BIDS links BIDS and MNE-Python with the goal to make your analyses
to code, more robust, and facilitate data and code sharing with co-workers

Notable changes in 0.6

- The new Inspector, which can be invoked via mne_bids.inspect_dataset(),
  allows you to interactively explore your raw data, change the bad channels
  selection, and edit mne.Annotations. It also performs automated detection
  flat data segments or channels, to assist you during visual inspection.
  capabilities of the inspector will be further expanded in upcoming
  of MNE-BIDS.

- To further assist you during data inspection, we have added a function to
  summarize all events present in a dataset, mne_bids.stats.count_events().

- Sidecar JSON files can now be updated using a template via

- You can now read and write FLASH MRI images using mne_bids.write_anat().
  We also fixed some issues with MRI defacing along the way.

- Event durations are now preserved upon reading and writing data (we used
  set all event durations to zero before).


We provide pip- and conda-installable packages.

Please follow the instructions at

(Note that it might take a while for the packages to become available on all
 mirrors, so if you're not seeing 0.6 yet, try again in an hour or two 🕘)
