0.9.3 should be out sometime this week, I think. It's currently being tested.
But I'm pretty sure we never promised an Enthon with numpy and scipy 0.4 in that
time frame. It probably won't be until some time in April before we can
transition our commercial product line to numpy. Enthon exists primarily to
support the applications that we deliver to customers.

None of our customers have requested deliverables on 64-bit Windows, so there
probably won't be an Enthon for that platform until that happens. I haven't
heard of anyone trying to build numpy or scipy on that platform, either.
