Parcels v3.0.0 is a major update to v2.4.2. The most important change is that the kernel loop has been changed, to support vectorial summing of particle displacements, in #1402. This change and its implications are explained in the new Kernel Loop tutorial.

This version also deprecates the in-built plotting methods and in #1397. Furthermore, this version includes a major code clean-up, mostly by retiring support for Array-of-Structure (AoS) data architecture, in #1423.
