The current version of "Guide to NumPy" is very complete.  There are a 
few editing and typographical changes needed, but that is it.

I sent updates to everyone who I have an email adress for in December.  
If you did not receive it then I don't have the right email address for 
you.  Please let me know and we will get it fixed (I'll send you an 
update right away and you'll be set to receive the final update in 

Thank you so much, everybody, for all of your support.   I have received 
approximately 1000 orders so far over the past 18 months which has 
literally saved my skin and made it possible to continue working on NumPy. 

I'm even more enthused that the number of downloads of NumPy 1.0.1 has 
reached 30000.   We are also making inroads with the Python developers 
and uf all goes well should have a working array interface in Python 3.0 
and Python 2.6
