### Changed
- Shell
- based on ptpython 3
- integration with asyncio with aiogevent
- starts in monochrome mode
- relative scans (dscans) translated to absolute scans in data saving
- ICEPAP motor controller: better error message if connection cannot be established
- raises CommunicationError exception
- Lima
- '.use_background_substraction' is replaced by 'use_background' True/False, and 'background_source'image/file
- progress bar refactoring
- new progress bar based on tqdm, avoid memory leak
- progress bar is no more intertwined with scan chain
- ct output: refactoring of formatting code
- Flint
- When Flint is not fast enough to reach data from Redis, NaN values

- block size adjusts automatically for Mercury and FalconX
- avoid collision between server and service methods
- disconnect callback
- reporting of BaseException raised in server to client
- reporting of Timeout exception
- Settings

- use redis to determine last access time
- CalcMotorController: avoid recursive calls in '_real_position_update'
- Display of Alias column in lscnt()
- Measurement Group
- fix counters returned in random order
- Flint
