*What is it:*
*pandas* is a Python package providing fast, flexible, and expressive data structures designed to make working with “relational” or “labeled” data both easy and intuitive. It aims to be the fundamental high-level building block for doing practical, real world data analysis in Python. Additionally, it has the broader goal of becoming the most powerful and flexible open source data analysis / manipulation tool available in any language.
Highlights of this release include:
- - A new *pipe* method, see here http://pandas.pydata.org/pandas-docs/stable/whatsnew.html#whatsnew-0162-enhancements-pipe - Documentation on how to use numba http://numba.pydata.org with *pandas*, see here http://pandas.pydata.org/pandas-docs/stable/enhancingperf.html#enhancingperf-numba
