I made another beta release of scipy core last night.   There are 
windows binaries for Python 2.4 and Python 2.3.   If you are already a 
user of scipy, the new __init__ file installed for newcore will break 
your current installation of scipy (but the problem with linalg, 
fftpack, and stats is no longer there). 

There have been many improvements:

- bug fixes (including 64-bit fixes)
- threading support fixes
- optimizations
- more random numbers (thanks Robert Kern).
- more distutils fixes (thanks Pearu Peterson).

More tests are welcome.    We are moving towards a release (but still 
need to get Masked Arrays working and all of scipy to build on top of 
the new scipy core before a full release).
