It is with great delight that we are announcing the first public release of Gemini's new Python-based data reduction platform, DRAGONS (Data Reduction for Astronomy from Gemini Observatory North and South).

This project has been many years in the making. DRAGONS offers a more streamlined approach to the reduction of Gemini data compared to the Gemini IRAF package. This release, version 2.1.0, supports imaging data reduction for current facility instruments. Work is ongoing to add support for spectroscopy.

We encourage feedback on the DRAGONS Forum.
