Hi Ondrej,

will numpy 1.7.0 final support Python 3.3? The recent patch in the 
master branch seems to work well.

I tested a win-amd64-py2.7\msvc9\MKL build of the numpy 
maintenance/1.7.x branch against a number of package binaries from 
<http://www.lfd.uci.edu/~gohlke/pythonlibs/>.

The test results are at 
<http://www.lfd.uci.edu/~gohlke/pythonlibs/tests/20120821-win-amd64-py2.7-numpy-MKL-1.7.0rc1.dev-28ffac7/>. 
For comparison, the tests against numpy-MKL-1.6.2 are at 
<http://www.lfd.uci.edu/~gohlke/pythonlibs/tests/20120821-win-amd64-py2.7/>.

Besides some numpy 1.7.x test errors due to RuntimeWarning and 
DeprecationWarning, there are hundreds of "RuntimeWarning (numpy.dtype 
size changed, may indicate binary incompatibility)" when loading Cython 
extensions.

There are additional test failures in scipy, statsmodels, bottleneck, 
skimage, vigra, and mahotas. I did not check in detail or with existing 
tickets (http://projects.scipy.org/ is timing out or responding with 
HTTP 500 status).

Other packages test OK against numpy 1.7.x, e.g. PIL, PyGame, 
matplotlib, Pandas, tables, and numexpr.

Hope it helps.

Christoph
