[SciPy-dev] ANN: NumPy 1.2.0
Fri Sep 26 01:08:11 CDT 2008
I'm pleased to announce the release of NumPy 1.2.0.
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 minor release comes almost four months after the 1.1.0
release. The major features of this release are a new
testing framework and huge amount of documentation work. It
also includes a some minor API breakage scheduled in the
Please note that NumPy 1.2.0 requires Python 2.4 or greater.
