Ah, an early adopter who failed into our trap...
We detected a pb in the latest sources of scikits.timeseries. I'll  
send you a proper dist off-list, the files should be uploaded on  
sourceforge in the next 24h.

Oh yes. numpy 1.3 improves supports for structured arrays in numpy.ma  
and introduces numpy.lib.io.genfromtxt, two new features  
scikits.timeseries make extensive use of.

That's basically why we didn't make any official release announcement  
yet: we're waiting for numpy 1.3 to be released first. We're just  
getting ready, with relative success as you have unfortunately  
In any case, please accept all our sincere apologies for any
