Hey all, 

I made a branch called with_maskna and then merged Nathaniel's PR which removes the mask_na support from master.  I then applied a patch to fix the boolean indexing problem reported by Ralf.   

I then created a NumPy 1.7.x maintenance branch from which the release of NumPy 1.7 will be made.   Ondrej Certik and I will be managing the release of NumPy 1.7.   Ondrej is the author of SymPy and has agreed to help get NumPy 1.7 out the door.   Thanks, Ondrej for being willing to help in this way.  

In principal only bug-fixes should be pushed to the NumPy 1.7 branch at this point.   The target is to make a release of NumPy 1.7.x by July 9th.   The schedule we will work for is: 

RC1 -- June 25
RC2 -- July  5
Release -- July 13

NumPy 1.7 is a significant release and has several changes many of which are documented in the release notes.    Several new code paths were added which can have a subtle impact on code.   As we make the release candidates, it will be very helpful to receive as much feedback as possible on how any changes affect your code.   We will work on the release notes over the coming weeks so that they have as much information as possible. 

After NumPy 1.7, there is a NumPy 1.8 planned for later this year.   

Best regards,

-Travis
