SciPy 0.4.8
Scientific tools for Python

I'm pleased to announce the release of SciPy 0.4.8.  This release adds support for the latest NumPy (version 0.9.6) and adds Peter Verveer's multi-dimensional image processing package.  It also has enhancements for sparse matrices and maximum entropy modelling, fixes bugs in linear algebra, simulated annealing, statistics, least squares, sparse matrices, and has seen extensive code cleanups.

It is available for download from


as a source tarball for Linux/Solaris/OS X/BSD/Windows (64-bit and 32-bit) and as an executable installer for Win32.
