Hello,
due to fixed release cycles Ubuntu 8.04 still lacks the latest numpy 1.1.

I succeeded backporting the package python-numpy from the upcoming 
release Intrepid 8.10 with the help of the automatic tool Prevu.

Instructions can be found here:
* https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Prevu
* http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=268687

Information on the package:
http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=python-numpy

I can encourage other Ubuntu users to do the same because it is not 
difficult. Just follow the instructions on the wiki.

Regards,
Timmie
