Hello everybody,

I just have read the announcement for  SciPy 0.8.0 and of course I have
installed it immediatly.
I am quite new in Scipy (coming from Matlab) and I thought a good starting point
for a contribution would be to review and check the Scipy documentation.

I added some hints in 

http://docs.scipy.org/numpy/Front%20Page/

and now I ask myself how the release of the documentation is conntected to the
release of a new scipy version. 
Is it connected at all?

Browsing throw the docs give at 
http://docs.scipy.org/doc 
shows a documentation for scipy 0.7.
Does "...and better documentation..." mean an improvement in the docstrings
(As I am still not sure which place is the best to look at)?

As a scipy rookie I would appreciate same information about this topics (release
of documentation and release of a new scipy package)

Thank you!

Regs 
Marcus
