I find the new doc string for np.var a bit misleading:

"The mean is normally calculated as x.sum() / N, where N = len(x). If,
however, ddof is specified, the divisor N - ddof is used instead."

This seems to refer to the divisor of the mean not of the variance.

I need to sign up for doc editing rights.
