    🚀 :Release: 0.11.0

    🆕 New Expressions

    * Many new string utility expressions were added that follow the Pandas
      vectorized string methods API closely
      `<http://pandas.pydata.org/pandas-docs/stable/text.html#text-string-methods>`_.
      These are gathered under the ``.str`` sub-namespace, allowing the user to
      say::
    
        t.col.str.lower()
    
      to compute a new column with the string contents lowercased.
    
    * Likewise, many new datetime utility expressions were added to the ``.dt``
      sub-namespace, following Pandas vectorized datetime methods API
      `<http://pandas.pydata.org/pandas-docs/stable/timeseries.html>`_.
