Thanks, Jarrod.

Should I replace the old numpy 1.0.4 information at 
http://www.scipy.org/Download with the 1.1.0? It's still listing 1.0.4, 
but I wonder if there's some compatibility with scipy 0.6 issue that 
should cause it to stay at 1.0.4. In either case, I think the page 
should be updated -- particularly as searching Google for "numpy 
download" results in that page as the first hit.
