On behalf of the NumPy team I am pleased to announce the release of NumPy 1.16.2. This is a quick release fixing several problems encountered on Windows. The Python versions supported are 2.7 and 3.5-3.7. The Windows problems addressed are:
There is also a regression fix correcting signed zeros produced by divmod, see the release notes for details. Downstream developers building this release should use Cython >= 0.29.2 and, if using OpenBLAS, OpenBLAS > v0.3.4.
If you are installing using pip, you may encounter a problem with older
installed versions of NumPy that pip did not delete becoming mixed with the
current version, resulting in an
ImportError. That problem is
common on Debian derived distributions due to a modified pip. The fix is
to make sure all previous NumPy versions installed by pip have been
removed. See #12736 https://github.com/numpy/numpy/issues/12736 for
discussion of the issue.
Wheels for this release can be downloaded from PyPI https://pypi.org/project/numpy/1.16.2/, source archives and release notes are available from Github https://github.com/numpy/numpy/releases/tag/v1.16.2.
