+~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
-   Python 3.0 is not supported at all:  it requires NumPy to be ported to
-   Python 3.0, which is a massive effort, since a lot of C code has to be
-   ported.  It will happen, but not anytime soon.

-The main issue with 2.6 support is numpy. On Unix (including Mac OS X), numpy
-1.2.1 mostly works, with a few caveats. On windows, there are some problems
-related to the compilation process. The upcoming 1.3 version of numpy will fix
-those. Then, because of some python 2.6 bugs, f2py does not work on python 2.6;
-the fixes will also be in the upcoming numpy 1.3.

-The bottom line: if you can avoid it, do not use python 2.6 yet for
-numpy/scipy. If you really need scipy on python 2.6, then it is recommended
-have to build numpy from svn by yourself, and then build scipy.
