[SciPy-dev] ANN: NumPy 1.1.0
Thu May 29 17:10:54 CDT 2008
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
