PyMC is a Python module that provides a general Markov chain Monte
Carlo (MCMC) algorithm, making Bayesian simulation models relatively
easy to implement. PyMC is not an application per se, but rather a set
of classes that relieves users of the need for re-implementing MCMC
algorithms and associated utilities, such as plotting and statistical
summary. This allows the user to concentrate on important aspects of
the problem at hand, rather than the mundane details of statistical

Version 0.7.1 includes several improvements:

- Plotting via Matplotlib
- Calculation of model deviance and DIC
- Output files for CODA analysis
- Several new likelihood distributions
- New User's guide
