I'm pleased to announce the release of NumPy 1.1.0.

NumPy is the fundamental package needed for scientific computing with
Python.  It contains:

 * a powerful N-dimensional array object
 * sophisticated (broadcasting) functions
 * basic linear algebra functions
 * basic Fourier transforms
 * sophisticated random number capabilities
 * tools for integrating Fortran code.

Besides it's obvious scientific uses, NumPy can also be used as an
efficient multi-dimensional container of generic data. Arbitrary
data-types can be defined. This allows NumPy to seamlessly and
speedily integrate with a wide-variety of databases.

This is the first minor release since the 1.0 release in
October 2006. There are a few major changes, which introduce
some minor API breakage. In addition this release includes
tremendous improvements in terms of bug-fixing, testing, and
documentation.

For information, please see the release notes:

Thank you to everybody who contributed to this release.

Enjoy,
