F2PY - Fortran to Python Interface Generator
--------------------------------------------

I am pleased to announce the eight public release of F2PY, version
2.43.239_1806. The purpose of the F2PY project is to provide the 
connection between Python and Fortran programming languages.

What's new?
------------

* Added support for ``ENTRY`` statement.

* New attributes: ``intent(callback)`` to support non-external Python
  calls from Fortran; ``intent(inplace)`` to support in-situ changes,
  including typecode and contiguouness changes, of array arguments. 

* Added support for ``ALLOCATABLE`` string arrays.

* New command line switches: --compiler and --include_paths.

* Numerous bugs are fixed. Support for ``PARAMETER``s has been improved
  considerably.

* Documentation updates. Pyfort and F2PY comparison. Projects using F2PY,
  users feedback, etc.

* Support for Numarray 1.1 (thanks to Todd Miller).

* Win32 installers for F2PY and the latest scipy_distutils are provided.

Enjoy,
	Pearu Peterson
