    🚀 The release of QuTiP 4.4.0

    👌 Improvements

More built-in function available to string coefficients. The coefficients can be made from interpolated array with variable timesteps and can obtain state information more easily. Time-dependant collapse operator can have multiple terms.

    New wigner_transform and plot_wigner_sphere function. (by Nithin Ramu ).

    ptrace is faster and work on bigger systems, from 15 Qbits to 30 Qbits.
