The 4th beta release of NumPy 1.0 has just been made available.

NumPy 1.0 represents the culmination of over 18 months of work to unify 
the Numeric and Numarray array packages into a single best-of-breed 
array package for Python.

NumPy supports all the features of Numeric and Numarray with a healthy 
dose of it's own improved features.

It's time to start porting your applications to use NumPy as Numeric is 
no longer maintained and Numarray will only be maintained for a few more 

Porting is not difficult especially using the compatibility layers 
numpy.oldnumeric and numpy.numarray and the alter_code1.py modules in 
those packages.  The full C-API of Numeric is supported as is the C-API 
of Numarray.
