I'm pleased to announce the release of NumPy 1.1.1.

NumPy is the fundamental package needed for scientific computing with
Python.  It contains:

 * a powerful N-dimensional array object
 * sophisticated (broadcasting) functions
 * basic linear algebra functions
 * basic Fourier transforms
 * sophisticated random number capabilities
 * tools for integrating Fortran code.

Besides it's obvious scientific uses, NumPy can also be used as an
efficient multi-dimensional container of generic data. Arbitrary
data-types can be defined. This allows NumPy to seamlessly and
speedily integrate with a wide-variety of databases.

Numpy 1.1.1 is a bug fix release featuring major improvements in
Python 2.3.x compatibility and masked arrays. For information,
please see the release notes:

Thank you to everybody who contributed to this release.
