On behalf of the NumPy team, I am pleased to announce the release of NumPy 1.15.3. This is a bugfix release for bugs and regressions reported following the 1.15.2 release. The most noticeable fix is probably for the memory leak https://github.com/numpy/numpy/issues/12037 encountered when slicing classes derived from Numpy.
The Python versions supported by this release are 2.7, 3.4-3.7. Wheels for this release can be downloaded from PyPI https://pypi.org/project/numpy/1.15.3/, source archives are available from Github https://github.com/numpy/numpy/releases/tag/v1.15.3.
The NumPy 1.15.x OS X wheels released on PyPI no longer contain 32-bit
binaries. That will also be the case in future releases. See
#11625 <https://github.com/numpy/numpy/issues/11625>__ for the related
discussion. Those needing 32-bit support should look elsewhere or build
