Hi,

If you go to the issues for 1.7 and click "high priority":

https://github.com/numpy/numpy/issues?labels=priority%3A+high&milestone=3&state=open

you will see 3 issues as of right now. Two of those have PR attached.
It's been a lot of work
to get to this point and I'd like to thank all of you for helping out
with the issues.


In particular, I have just fixed a very annoying segfault (#2738) in the PR:

https://github.com/numpy/numpy/pull/2831

If you can review that one carefully, that would be highly
appreciated. The more people the better,
it's a reference counting issue and since this would go into the 1.7
release and it's in the core of numpy,
I want to make sure that it's correct.

So the last high priority issue is:

https://github.com/numpy/numpy/issues/568

and that's the one I will be concentrating on now. After it's fixed, I
think we are ready to release the rc1.

There are more open issues (that are not "high priority"):

https://github.com/numpy/numpy/issues?labels=&milestone=3&page=1&state=open

But I don't think we should delay the release any longer because of
them. Let me know if there
are any objections. Of course, if you attach a PR fixing any of those,
we'll merge it.

Ondrej
