v0.14.0 (May 31 , 2014)

This is a major release from 0.13.1 and includes a small number of API changes, several new features, enhancements, and performance improvements along with a large number of bug fixes. We recommend that all users upgrade to this version.


In 0.14.0 all NDFrame based containers have undergone significant internal refactoring. Before that each block of homogeneous data had its own labels and extra care was necessary to keep those in sync with the parent container’s labels. This should not have any visible user/API behavior changes (GH6745)

API changes

  • read_excel uses 0 as the default sheet (GH6573)

  • iloc will now accept out-of-bounds indexers for slices, e.g. a value that exceeds the length of the object being indexed. These will be excluded. This will make pandas conform more with python/numpy indexing of out-of-bounds values. A single indexer that is out-of-bounds and drops the dimensions of the object will still raise IndexError (GH6296, GH6299). This could result in an empty axis (e.g. an empty DataFrame being returned)

    In [1]: dfl = DataFrame(np.random.randn(5,2),columns=list('AB'))
    In [2]: dfl
              A         B
    0  0.469112 -0.282863
    1 -1.509059 -1.135632
    2  1.212112 -0.173215
    3  0.119209 -1.044236
    4 -0.861849 -2.104569
    [5 rows x 2 columns]
    In [3]: dfl.iloc[:,2:3]
    Empty DataFrame
    Columns: []
    Index: [0, 1, 2, 3, 4]
    [5 rows x 0 columns]
    In [4]: dfl.iloc[:,1:3]
    0 -0.282863
    1 -1.135632
    2 -0.173215
    3 -1.044236
    4 -2.104569
    [5 rows x 1 columns]
    In [5]: dfl.iloc[4:6]
              A         B
    4 -0.861849 -2.104569
    [1 rows x 2 columns]

    These are out-of-bounds selections

    IndexError: positional indexers are out-of-bounds
    IndexError: single positional indexer is out-of-bounds
  • Slicing with negative start, stop & step values handles corner cases better (GH6531):

    • df.iloc[:-len(df)] is now empty
    • df.iloc[len(df)::-1] now enumerates all elements in reverse
  • The DataFrame.interpolate() keyword downcast default has been changed from infer to None. This is to preserve the original dtype unless explicitly requested otherwise (GH6290).

  • When converting a dataframe to HTML it used to return Empty DataFrame. This special case has been removed, instead a header with the column names is returned (GH6062).

  • Series and Index now internally share more common operations, e.g. factorize(),nunique(),value_counts() are now supported on Index types as well. The Series.weekday property from is removed from Series for API consistency. Using a DatetimeIndex/PeriodIndex method on a Series will now raise a TypeError. (GH4551, GH4056, GH5519, GH6380, GH7206).

  • Add is_month_start, is_month_end, is_quarter_start, is_quarter_end, is_year_start, is_year_end accessors for DateTimeIndex / Timestamp which return a boolean array of whether the timestamp(s) are at the start/end of the month/quarter/year defined by the frequency of the DateTimeIndex / Timestamp (GH4565, GH6998)

  • Local variable usage has changed in pandas.eval()/DataFrame.eval()/DataFrame.query() (GH5987). For the DataFrame methods, two things have changed

    • Column names are now given precedence over locals
    • Local variables must be referred to explicitly. This means that even if you have a local variable that is not a column you must still refer to it with the '@' prefix.
    • You can have an expression like df.query('@a < a') with no complaints from pandas about ambiguity of the name a.
    • The top-level pandas.eval() function does not allow you use the '@' prefix and provides you with an error message telling you so.
    • NameResolutionError was removed because it isn’t necessary anymore.
  • Define and document the order of column vs index names in query/eval (GH6676)

  • concat will now concatenate mixed Series and DataFrames using the Series name or numbering columns as needed (GH2385). See the docs

  • Slicing and advanced/boolean indexing operations on Index classes as well as Index.delete() and Index.drop() methods will no longer change the type of the resulting index (GH6440, GH7040)

    In [6]: i = pd.Index([1, 2, 3, 'a' , 'b', 'c'])
    In [7]: i[[0,1,2]]
    Out[7]: Index([1, 2, 3], dtype='object')
    In [8]: i.drop(['a', 'b', 'c'])
    Out[8]: Index([1, 2, 3], dtype='object')

    Previously, the above operation would return Int64Index. If you’d like to do this manually, use Index.astype()

    In [9]: i[[0,1,2]].astype(np.int_)
    Out[9]: Int64Index([1, 2, 3], dtype='int64')
  • set_index no longer converts MultiIndexes to an Index of tuples. For example, the old behavior returned an Index in this case (GH6459):

    # Old behavior, casted MultiIndex to an Index
    In [10]: tuple_ind
    Out[10]: Index([('a', 'c'), ('a', 'd'), ('b', 'c'), ('b', 'd')], dtype='object')
    In [11]: df_multi.set_index(tuple_ind)
                   0         1
    (a, c)  0.471435 -1.190976
    (a, d)  1.432707 -0.312652
    (b, c) -0.720589  0.887163
    (b, d)  0.859588 -0.636524
    [4 rows x 2 columns]
    # New behavior
    In [12]: mi
    MultiIndex(levels=[['a', 'b'], ['c', 'd']],
               labels=[[0, 0, 1, 1], [0, 1, 0, 1]])
    In [13]: df_multi.set_index(mi)
                0         1
    a c  0.471435 -1.190976
      d  1.432707 -0.312652
    b c -0.720589  0.887163
      d  0.859588 -0.636524
    [4 rows x 2 columns]

    This also applies when passing multiple indices to set_index:

    # Old output, 2-level MultiIndex of tuples
    In [14]: df_multi.set_index([df_multi.index, df_multi.index])
                          0         1
    (a, c) (a, c)  0.471435 -1.190976
    (a, d) (a, d)  1.432707 -0.312652
    (b, c) (b, c) -0.720589  0.887163
    (b, d) (b, d)  0.859588 -0.636524
    [4 rows x 2 columns]
    # New output, 4-level MultiIndex
    In [15]: df_multi.set_index([df_multi.index, df_multi.index])
                    0         1
    a c a c  0.471435 -1.190976
      d a d  1.432707 -0.312652
    b c b c -0.720589  0.887163
      d b d  0.859588 -0.636524
    [4 rows x 2 columns]
  • pairwise keyword was added to the statistical moment functions rolling_cov, rolling_corr, ewmcov, ewmcorr, expanding_cov, expanding_corr to allow the calculation of moving window covariance and correlation matrices (GH4950). See Computing rolling pairwise covariances and correlations in the docs.

    In [1]: df = DataFrame(np.random.randn(10,4),columns=list('ABCD'))
    In [4]: covs = pd.rolling_cov(df[['A','B','C']], df[['B','C','D']], 5, pairwise=True)
    In [5]: covs[df.index[-1]]
              B         C         D
    A  0.035310  0.326593 -0.505430
    B  0.137748 -0.006888 -0.005383
    C -0.006888  0.861040  0.020762
  • Series.iteritems() is now lazy (returns an iterator rather than a list). This was the documented behavior prior to 0.14. (GH6760)

  • Added nunique and value_counts functions to Index for counting unique elements. (GH6734)

  • stack and unstack now raise a ValueError when the level keyword refers to a non-unique item in the Index (previously raised a KeyError). (GH6738)

  • drop unused order argument from Series.sort; args now are in the same order as Series.order; add na_position arg to conform to Series.order (GH6847)

  • default sorting algorithm for Series.order is now quicksort, to conform with Series.sort (and numpy defaults)

  • add inplace keyword to Series.order/sort to make them inverses (GH6859)

  • DataFrame.sort now places NaNs at the beginning or end of the sort according to the na_position parameter. (GH3917)

  • accept TextFileReader in concat, which was affecting a common user idiom (GH6583), this was a regression from 0.13.1

  • Added factorize functions to Index and Series to get indexer and unique values (GH7090)

  • describe on a DataFrame with a mix of Timestamp and string like objects returns a different Index (GH7088). Previously the index was unintentionally sorted.

  • Arithmetic operations with only bool dtypes now give a warning indicating that they are evaluated in Python space for +, -, and * operations and raise for all others (GH7011, GH6762, GH7015, GH7210)

    x = pd.Series(np.random.rand(10) > 0.5)
    y = True
    x + y  # warning generated: should do x | y instead
    x / y  # this raises because it doesn't make sense
    NotImplementedError: operator '/' not implemented for bool dtypes
  • In HDFStore, select_as_multiple will always raise a KeyError, when a key or the selector is not found (GH6177)

  • df['col'] = value and df.loc[:,'col'] = value are now completely equivalent; previously the .loc would not necessarily coerce the dtype of the resultant series (GH6149)

  • dtypes and ftypes now return a series with dtype=object on empty containers (GH5740)

  • df.to_csv will now return a string of the CSV data if neither a target path nor a buffer is provided (GH6061)

  • pd.infer_freq() will now raise a TypeError if given an invalid Series/Index type (GH6407, GH6463)

  • A tuple passed to DataFame.sort_index will be interpreted as the levels of the index, rather than requiring a list of tuple (GH4370)

  • all offset operations now return Timestamp types (rather than datetime), Business/Week frequencies were incorrect (GH4069)

  • to_excel now converts np.inf into a string representation, customizable by the inf_rep keyword argument (Excel has no native inf representation) (GH6782)

  • Replace pandas.compat.scipy.scoreatpercentile with numpy.percentile (GH6810)

  • .quantile on a datetime[ns] series now returns Timestamp instead of np.datetime64 objects (GH6810)

  • change AssertionError to TypeError for invalid types passed to concat (GH6583)

  • Raise a TypeError when DataFrame is passed an iterator as the data argument (GH5357)

Display Changes

  • The default way of printing large DataFrames has changed. DataFrames exceeding max_rows and/or max_columns are now displayed in a centrally truncated view, consistent with the printing of a pandas.Series (GH5603).

    In previous versions, a DataFrame was truncated once the dimension constraints were reached and an ellipse (…) signaled that part of the data was cut off.

    The previous look of truncate.

    In the current version, large DataFrames are centrally truncated, showing a preview of head and tail in both dimensions.

    The new look.
  • allow option 'truncate' for display.show_dimensions to only show the dimensions if the frame is truncated (GH6547).

    The default for display.show_dimensions will now be truncate. This is consistent with how Series display length.

    In [16]: dfd = pd.DataFrame(np.arange(25).reshape(-1,5), index=[0,1,2,3,4], columns=[0,1,2,3,4])
    # show dimensions since this is truncated
    In [17]: with pd.option_context('display.max_rows', 2, 'display.max_columns', 2,
       ....:                        'display.show_dimensions', 'truncate'):
       ....:    print(dfd)
         0 ...   4
    0    0 ...   4
    ..  .. ...  ..
    4   20 ...  24
    [5 rows x 5 columns]
    # will not show dimensions since it is not truncated
    In [18]: with pd.option_context('display.max_rows', 10, 'display.max_columns', 40,
       ....:                        'display.show_dimensions', 'truncate'):
       ....:    print(dfd)
        0   1   2   3   4
    0   0   1   2   3   4
    1   5   6   7   8   9
    2  10  11  12  13  14
    3  15  16  17  18  19
    4  20  21  22  23  24
  • Regression in the display of a MultiIndexed Series with display.max_rows is less than the length of the series (GH7101)

  • Fixed a bug in the HTML repr of a truncated Series or DataFrame not showing the class name with the large_repr set to ‘info’ (GH7105)

  • The verbose keyword in DataFrame.info(), which controls whether to shorten the info representation, is now None by default. This will follow the global setting in display.max_info_columns. The global setting can be overridden with verbose=True or verbose=False.

  • Fixed a bug with the info repr not honoring the display.max_info_columns setting (GH6939)

  • Offset/freq info now in Timestamp __repr__ (GH4553)

Text Parsing API Changes

read_csv()/read_table() will now be noisier w.r.t invalid options rather than falling back to the PythonParser.

  • Raise ValueError when sep specified with delim_whitespace=True in read_csv()/read_table() (GH6607)
  • Raise ValueError when engine='c' specified with unsupported options in read_csv()/read_table() (GH6607)
  • Raise ValueError when fallback to python parser causes options to be ignored (GH6607)
  • Produce ParserWarning on fallback to python parser when no options are ignored (GH6607)
  • Translate sep='\s+' to delim_whitespace=True in read_csv()/read_table() if no other C-unsupported options specified (GH6607)

Groupby API Changes

More consistent behaviour for some groupby methods:

  • groupby head and tail now act more like filter rather than an aggregation:

    In [19]: df = pd.DataFrame([[1, 2], [1, 4], [5, 6]], columns=['A', 'B'])
    In [20]: g = df.groupby('A')
    In [21]: g.head(1)  # filters DataFrame
       A  B
    0  1  2
    2  5  6
    [2 rows x 2 columns]
    In [22]: g.apply(lambda x: x.head(1))  # used to simply fall-through
         A  B
    1 0  1  2
    5 2  5  6
    [2 rows x 2 columns]
  • groupby head and tail respect column selection:

    In [23]: g[['B']].head(1)
    0  2
    2  6
    [2 rows x 1 columns]
  • groupby nth now reduces by default; filtering can be achieved by passing as_index=False. With an optional dropna argument to ignore NaN. See the docs.


    In [24]: df = DataFrame([[1, np.nan], [1, 4], [5, 6]], columns=['A', 'B'])
    In [25]: g = df.groupby('A')
    In [26]: g.nth(0)
    1  NaN
    5  6.0
    [2 rows x 1 columns]
    # this is equivalent to g.first()
    In [27]: g.nth(0, dropna='any')
    1  4.0
    5  6.0
    [2 rows x 1 columns]
    # this is equivalent to g.last()
    In [28]: g.nth(-1, dropna='any')
    1  4.0
    5  6.0
    [2 rows x 1 columns]


    In [29]: gf = df.groupby('A',as_index=False)
    In [30]: gf.nth(0)
       A    B
    0  1  NaN
    2  5  6.0
    [2 rows x 2 columns]
    In [31]: gf.nth(0, dropna='any')
       A    B
    1  1  4.0
    5  5  6.0
    [2 rows x 2 columns]
  • groupby will now not return the grouped column for non-cython functions (GH5610, GH5614, GH6732), as its already the index

    In [32]: df = DataFrame([[1, np.nan], [1, 4], [5, 6], [5, 8]], columns=['A', 'B'])
    In [33]: g = df.groupby('A')
    In [34]: g.count()
    1  1
    5  2
    [2 rows x 1 columns]
    In [35]: g.describe()
      count mean       std  min  25%  50%  75%  max
    1   1.0  4.0       NaN  4.0  4.0  4.0  4.0  4.0
    5   2.0  7.0  1.414214  6.0  6.5  7.0  7.5  8.0
    [2 rows x 8 columns]
  • passing as_index will leave the grouped column in-place (this is not change in 0.14.0)

    In [36]: df = DataFrame([[1, np.nan], [1, 4], [5, 6], [5, 8]], columns=['A', 'B'])
    In [37]: g = df.groupby('A',as_index=False)
    In [38]: g.count()
       A  B
    0  1  1
    1  5  2
    [2 rows x 2 columns]
    In [39]: g.describe()
          A                               ...     B                                   
      count mean  std  min  25%  50%  75% ...  mean       std  min  25%  50%  75%  max
    0   2.0  1.0  0.0  1.0  1.0  1.0  1.0 ...   4.0       NaN  4.0  4.0  4.0  4.0  4.0
    1   2.0  5.0  0.0  5.0  5.0  5.0  5.0 ...   7.0  1.414214  6.0  6.5  7.0  7.5  8.0
    [2 rows x 16 columns]
  • Allow specification of a more complex groupby via pd.Grouper, such as grouping by a Time and a string field simultaneously. See the docs. (GH3794)

  • Better propagation/preservation of Series names when performing groupby operations:

    • SeriesGroupBy.agg will ensure that the name attribute of the original series is propagated to the result (GH6265).
    • If the function provided to GroupBy.apply returns a named series, the name of the series will be kept as the name of the column index of the DataFrame returned by GroupBy.apply (GH6124). This facilitates DataFrame.stack operations where the name of the column index is used as the name of the inserted column containing the pivoted data.


The SQL reading and writing functions now support more database flavors through SQLAlchemy (GH2717, GH4163, GH5950, GH6292). All databases supported by SQLAlchemy can be used, such as PostgreSQL, MySQL, Oracle, Microsoft SQL server (see documentation of SQLAlchemy on included dialects).

The functionality of providing DBAPI connection objects will only be supported for sqlite3 in the future. The 'mysql' flavor is deprecated.

The new functions read_sql_query() and read_sql_table() are introduced. The function read_sql() is kept as a convenience wrapper around the other two and will delegate to specific function depending on the provided input (database table name or sql query).

In practice, you have to provide a SQLAlchemy engine to the sql functions. To connect with SQLAlchemy you use the create_engine() function to create an engine object from database URI. You only need to create the engine once per database you are connecting to. For an in-memory sqlite database:

In [40]: from sqlalchemy import create_engine

# Create your connection.
In [41]: engine = create_engine('sqlite:///:memory:')

This engine can then be used to write or read data to/from this database:

In [42]: df = pd.DataFrame({'A': [1,2,3], 'B': ['a', 'b', 'c']})

In [43]: df.to_sql('db_table', engine, index=False)

You can read data from a database by specifying the table name:

In [44]: pd.read_sql_table('db_table', engine)
   A  B
0  1  a
1  2  b
2  3  c

[3 rows x 2 columns]

or by specifying a sql query:

In [45]: pd.read_sql_query('SELECT * FROM db_table', engine)
   A  B
0  1  a
1  2  b
2  3  c

[3 rows x 2 columns]

Some other enhancements to the sql functions include:

  • support for writing the index. This can be controlled with the index keyword (default is True).
  • specify the column label to use when writing the index with index_label.
  • specify string columns to parse as datetimes with the parse_dates keyword in read_sql_query() and read_sql_table().


Some of the existing functions or function aliases have been deprecated and will be removed in future versions. This includes: tquery, uquery, read_frame, frame_query, write_frame.


The support for the ‘mysql’ flavor when using DBAPI connection objects has been deprecated. MySQL will be further supported with SQLAlchemy engines (GH6900).

MultiIndexing Using Slicers

In 0.14.0 we added a new way to slice MultiIndexed objects. You can slice a MultiIndex by providing multiple indexers.

You can provide any of the selectors as if you are indexing by label, see Selection by Label, including slices, lists of labels, labels, and boolean indexers.

You can use slice(None) to select all the contents of that level. You do not need to specify all the deeper levels, they will be implied as slice(None).

As usual, both sides of the slicers are included as this is label indexing.

See the docs See also issues (GH6134, GH4036, GH3057, GH2598, GH5641, GH7106)


You should specify all axes in the .loc specifier, meaning the indexer for the index and for the columns. Their are some ambiguous cases where the passed indexer could be mis-interpreted as indexing both axes, rather than into say the MuliIndex for the rows.

You should do this:


rather than this:



You will need to make sure that the selection axes are fully lexsorted!

In [46]: def mklbl(prefix,n):
   ....:     return ["%s%s" % (prefix,i)  for i in range(n)]

In [47]: index = MultiIndex.from_product([mklbl('A',4),

   ....:                                  mklbl('C',4),

Using a boolean indexer you can provide selection related to the values.

In [56]: mask = df[('a','foo')]>200

In [57]: df.loc[idx[mask,:,['C1','C3']],idx[:,'foo']]
lvl0           a    b
lvl1         foo  foo

      C3 D0  248  250
         D1  252  254

[7 rows x 2 columns]

You can also specify the axis argument to .loc to interpret the passed slicers on a single axis.

In [58]: df.loc(axis=0)[:,:,['C1','C3']]
lvl0           a         b     
lvl1         bar  foo  bah  foo

Furthermore you can set the values using these methods

In [59]: df2 = df.copy()

In [60]: df2.loc(axis=0)[:,:,['C1','C3']] = -10

In [61]: df2
lvl0           a         b

  • Hexagonal bin plots from DataFrame.plot with kind='hexbin' (GH5478), See the docs.

  • DataFrame.plot and Series.plot now supports area plot with specifying kind='area' (GH6656), See the docs

  • Pie plots from Series.plot and DataFrame.plot with kind='pie' (GH6976), See the docs.

  • Plotting with Error Bars is now supported in the .plot method of DataFrame and Series objects (GH3796, GH6834), See the docs.

  • DataFrame.plot and Series.plot now support a table keyword for plotting matplotlib.Table, See the docs. The table keyword can receive the following values.

    • False: Do nothing (default).
    • True: Draw a table using the DataFrame or Series called plot method. Data will be transposed to meet matplotlib’s default layout.
    • DataFrame or Series: Draw matplotlib.table using the passed data. The data will be drawn as displayed in print method (not transposed automatically). Also, helper function pandas.tools.plotting.table is added to create a table from DataFrame and Series, and add it to an matplotlib.Axes.
  • plot(legend='reverse') will now reverse the order of legend labels for most plot kinds. (GH6014)

  • Line plot and area plot can be stacked by stacked=True (GH6656)

  • Following keywords are now acceptable for DataFrame.plot() with kind='bar' and kind='barh':

    • width: Specify the bar width. In previous versions, static value 0.5 was passed to matplotlib and it cannot be overwritten. (GH6604)
    • align: Specify the bar alignment. Default is center (different from matplotlib). In previous versions, pandas passes align=’edge’ to matplotlib and adjust the location to center by itself, and it results align keyword is not applied as expected. (GH4525)
    • position: Specify relative alignments for bar plot layout. From 0 (left/bottom-end) to 1(right/top-end). Default is 0.5 (center). (GH6604)

    Because of the default align value changes, coordinates of bar plots are now located on integer values (0.0, 1.0, 2.0 …). This is intended to make bar plot be located on the same coordinates as line plot. However, bar plot may differs unexpectedly when you manually adjust the bar location or drawing area, such as using set_xlim, set_ylim, etc. In this cases, please modify your script to meet with new coordinates.

  • The parallel_coordinates() function now takes argument color instead of colors. A FutureWarning is raised to alert that the old colors argument will not be supported in a future release. (GH6956)

  • The parallel_coordinates() and andrews_curves() functions now take positional argument frame instead of data. A FutureWarning is raised if the old data argument is used by name. (GH6956)

  • DataFrame.boxplot() now supports layout keyword (GH6769)

  • DataFrame.boxplot() has a new keyword argument, return_type. It accepts 'dict', 'axes', or 'both', in which case a namedtuple with the matplotlib axes and a dict of matplotlib Lines is returned.

Prior Version Deprecations/Changes

There are prior version deprecations that are taking effect as of 0.14.0.


  • The pivot_table()/DataFrame.pivot_table() and crosstab() functions now take arguments index and columns instead of rows and cols. A FutureWarning is raised to alert that the old rows and cols arguments will not be supported in a future release (GH5505)

  • The DataFrame.drop_duplicates() and DataFrame.duplicated() methods now take argument subset instead of cols to better align with DataFrame.dropna(). A FutureWarning is raised to alert that the old cols arguments will not be supported in a future release (GH6680)

  • The DataFrame.to_csv() and DataFrame.to_excel() functions now takes argument columns instead of cols. A FutureWarning is raised to alert that the old cols arguments will not be supported in a future release (GH6645)

  • Indexers will warn FutureWarning when used with a scalar indexer and a non-floating point Index (GH4892, GH6960)

    # non-floating point indexes can only be indexed by integers / labels
    In [1]: Series(1,np.arange(5))[3.0]

  • Numpy 1.9 compat w.r.t. deprecation warnings (GH6960)

  • Panel.shift() now has a function signature that matches DataFrame.shift(). The old positional argument lags has been changed to a keyword argument periods with a default value of 1. A FutureWarning is raised if the old argument lags is used by name. (GH6910)

  • The order keyword argument of factorize() will be removed. (GH6926).

  • Remove the copy keyword from DataFrame.xs(), Panel.major_xs(), Panel.minor_xs(). A view will be returned if possible, otherwise a copy will be made. Previously the user could think that copy=False would ALWAYS return a view. (GH6894)

  • The parallel_coordinates() function now takes argument color instead of colors. A FutureWarning is raised to alert that the old colors argument will not be supported in a future release. (GH6956)

  • The parallel_coordinates() and andrews_curves() functions now take positional argument frame instead of data. A FutureWarning is raised if the old data argument is used by name. (GH6956)

  • The support for the ‘mysql’ flavor when using DBAPI connection objects has been deprecated. MySQL will be further supported with SQLAlchemy engines (GH6900).

  • The following io.sql functions have been deprecated: tquery, uquery, read_frame, frame_query, write_frame.

  • The percentile_width keyword argument in describe() has been deprecated. Use the percentiles keyword instead, which takes a list of percentiles to display. The default output is unchanged.

  • The default return type of boxplot() will change from a dict to a matplotlib Axes in a future release. You can use the future behavior now by passing return_type='axes' to boxplot.

Known Issues

  • OpenPyXL 2.0.0 breaks backwards compatibility (GH7169)


  • DataFrame and Series will create a MultiIndex object if passed a tuples dict, See the docs (GH3323)
