We are pleased to announce the release of PySAL 1.0.0.

PySAL is a library of tools for spatial data analysis written in Python.  This
release comes after an extensive integration and refactoring effort to combine
common analytical functionality in the projects STARS and PySpace into a shared
open source library for geospatial analysis and geocomputation. For more
information, please see the release notes that follow below.

You can download PySAL from here:
Python 2.6 binaries for Windows and OS X are available, as well as source
tarballs for other platforms and documentation in html form.
