    • statistics_histogram - defines the statistics and histogram of a raster to help render output
    • tasseled_cap - analyzes certain multispectral datasets and calculates new bands useful to map vegetation and urban developmet changes
    • identity - default function required in a mosaic dataset if there is no other function
    • colorspace_converstion - converts the color model of a three-band unsigned 8-bit images from HSV or RGB, or vice versa
    • grayscale - converts a multi-band image into a single-band grayscale image
    • pansharpen - enhances spatial resolution of a multi-band image by fusing with higher-resolution panchromatic image
    • spectral_conversion - applies a matrix to affect the spectral values output by a multi-band image
    • raster_calculator - allows you to call all existing math functions for building expressions
    • speckle - filters a speckled radar dataset to smooth out noise
  • Added a new GeoEnrichment module
  • Added ability to set and configure the identity provider for managing user credentials
  • Added support for passing geometry columns into PySal functions
  • Added a new esri_access property to User objects so Esri training materials could be accessed
