I'm pleased to announce the release of NumPy 1.2.0.
NumPy is the fundamental package needed for scientific computing with Python. It contains:
* a powerful N-dimensional array object * sophisticated (broadcasting) functions * basic linear algebra functions * basic Fourier transforms * sophisticated random number capabilities * tools for integrating Fortran code.
Besides it's obvious scientific uses, NumPy can also be used as an efficient multi-dimensional container of generic data. Arbitrary data-types can be defined. This allows NumPy to seamlessly and speedily integrate with a wide-variety of databases.
This minor release comes almost four months after the 1.1.0 release. The major features of this release are a new testing framework and huge amount of documentation work. It also includes a some minor API breakage scheduled in the 1.1 release.
Please note that NumPy 1.2.0 requires Python 2.4 or greater.
