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

I am pleased to announce the ninth public release of F2PY, version
2.45.241_1926. The purpose of the F2PY project is to provide the 
connection between Python and Fortran programming languages.

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

* Added support for wrapping signed integers and processing .pyf.src 
  template files.

* F2PY fortran objects have _cpointer attribute holding a C pointer
  to a wrapped function or a variable. When using _cpointer as
  a callback argument, the overhead of Python C/API is avoided
  giving for using callback arguments the same performance as calling
  Fortran or C function from Fortran or C, at the same time retaining
  the flexibility of Python.

* Callback arguments can be built-in functions, fortran objects,
  and CObjects (hold by _cpointer attribute, for instance).

* New attribute: ``intent(aux)`` to save parameter values.

* New command line switches: --help-link and --link-<resource>

* Numerous bugs are fixed. Support for ``usercode`` statement has been
  improved.

* Documentation updates.

Enjoy,
	Pearu Peterson
