hi all,

We've released pandas 0.11.0, a big release that span 3 months of
continuous development, led primarily by the intrepid Jeff Reback
and y-p. The release brings many new features, performance and
API improvements, bug fixes, and other goodies.

Some highlights:

- New precision indexing fields loc, iloc, at, and iat, to reduce
  occasional ambiguity in the catch-all hitherto ix method.
- Expanded support for NumPy data types in DataFrame
- NumExpr integration to accelerate various operator evaluation
- New Cookbook and 10 minutes to pandas pages in the documentation by
Jeff Reback
- Improved DataFrame to CSV exporting performance
- Experimental "rplot" branch with faceted plots with matplotlib
  merged and open for community hacking

Source archives and Windows installers are on PyPI. Thanks to all
who contributed to this release, especially Jeff and y-p.
