Hi Ondrej,

will numpy 1.7.0 final support Python 3.3? The recent patch in the
master branch seems to work well.

I tested a win-amd64-py2.7\msvc9\MKL build of the numpy
maintenance/1.7.x branch against a number of package binaries from

The test results are at
For comparison, the tests against numpy-MKL-1.6.2 are at

Besides some numpy 1.7.x test errors due to RuntimeWarning and

Flipped the release switch on those in commit ea23de8, errors should be gone now.
, there are hundreds of "RuntimeWarning (numpy.dtype
size changed, may indicate binary incompatibility)" when loading Cython

This looks really bad. Last discussion I could find on this topic on the Cython list: http://grokbase.com/t/python/cython-devel/121ygkvfhc/cython-upcoming-issues-with-numpy-deprecated-apis-and-cythons-sizeof-checks

At this point I think it would be a good idea to install a warning filter for this on import of numpy and leave it in place. And also in the test runner. Even if Cython would fix it now, that doesn't help for all binaries of existing releases of projects that depend on numpy.


There are additional test failures in scipy, statsmodels, bottleneck,
skimage, vigra, and mahotas. I did not check in detail or with existing
tickets (http://projects.scipy.org/ is timing out or responding with
HTTP 500 status).

Other packages test OK against numpy 1.7.x, e.g. PIL, PyGame,
matplotlib, Pandas, tables, and numexpr.

Hope it helps.
