hi all,

I'm very pleased to announce the pandas 0.7.3 release. This is
primarily a bug fix release from 0.7.2, but also includes a
number of new features. The most noticeable ones are a number of
new plotting types and options.

What's new: http://pandas.pydata.org/pandas-docs/stable/whatsnew.html

pandas 0.8.0 will be the largest pandas release in some time. We
have been working intensely to expand its time series
capabilities and to incorporate code and features from
scikits.timeseries, thus enabling users to migrate their code to
pandas. From 0.8.0 onward, pandas will use NumPy's datetime64
dtype and thus require at least NumPy version 1.6.1. I am
extremely excited about this step forward, as pandas will be one
of the most featureful and highest performance tools for time
series data in any language. If this is of interest to you, tune
in to the timeseries branch on GitHub, which will soon be merged
into master. Targeting a mid-May release for 0.8.0, so the more
user feedback between now and then the better.
