[SciPy-user] BLAS optimized matrix multiplication

I am a new user, my apologies if that is a FAQ, but quick googling 
around did not reveal much info.

I tried SciPy 0.3 with Numeric 23.1 on Windows, and dot seems to be very 
slow, looks like it is not using ATLAS.

My quick research shows that there is a dotblas module, which is 
optional in Numeric, and apparently binaries available from Numeric 
sourceforge page do not include it (no wonder, they don't distribute ATLAS).

However, since SciPy does distribute ATLAS, would it be possible to 
include dotblas in SciPy? Or maybe something similar already available 
in SciPy but I don't see it?

On absolutely unrelated note, is there any plans on next release? I've 
seen somewhere on scipy.org statement that you guys want to release 
0.3.1 soon after 0.3. Just checking.

Thanks! And thanks for a nice product and all your hard work.
