Hi all,

I'd like to release numpy 1.0rc2 on about October 5 of next week.   
Then, the release of numpy 1.0 official should happen on Monday, October 
17.   Please try and get all fixes and improvements in before then.  
Backward-incompatible changes are not acceptable at this point (unless 
they are minor or actually bug-fixes). I think NumPy has been cooking 
long enough.  Any remaining problems can be fixed with maintenance 
releases.  When 1.0 comes out, we will make a 1.0 release branch where 
bug-fixes should go as well as on the main trunk (I'd love for a way to 
do that automatically).

There are lots of projects that need to start converting to NumPy 1.0 if 
we are going to finally have a "merged" community.  The actual release 
of NumPy 1.0 will indicate that we are now committing to stability. 
Thanks to all that have been contributing so much to the project.
