No, 1.4.1 is needed. Notes are fixed now.

"Python 3 compatibility is planned and is currently technically
feasible, since Numpy has been ported. However, since the Python 3
compatible Numpy 2.0 has not been released yet, support for Python 3
in Scipy is not yet included in Scipy 0.8.  SciPy 0.9, planned for fall
2010, will very likely include experimental support for Python 3."

Thanks for reporting,
Ralf
