xlwings 0.14 and 0.15

xlwings 0.14 added asynchronous UDFs, i.e. user defined functions that return immediately with a #N/A waiting... and update the cell with the result once the calculation has finished. They don't block Excel and hence allow you to continue working while they are waiting for the result. Using async functions is as easy as:
xlwings 0.15 introduced a new version of dynamic arrays. Note that if you are already enjoying the new native dynamic arrays of Excel (currently accessible only if you are on the Office 365 insider channel), you don't have to do anything special and should not use xlwings' version of the dynamic arrays via the return decorator.
For those that still need to use xlwings' version of dynamic arrays: They have been improved with these advantages:
  • They now use Excel's (legacy) array formulas
  • They are faster
  • They don't require an empty row/column around them anymore
