Numarray is an array processing package designed to efficiently manipulate large multi-dimensional arrays. Numarray is modeled after Numeric and features c-code generated from python template scripts, the capacity to operate directly on arrays in files, arrays of heterogeneous records, string arrays, and in-place operation on memory mapped files.
Release Notes for numarray-1.4.0
1. Speed improvement for numarray operators. The Python level hook mapping numarray operators onto universal functions has been moved down to C.
2. Speed improvement for string-array comparisons, any(), all(). String correlation is ~10x faster.
3. Better operation with py2exe to help it automatically detect the core numarray extensions to include in an installer.
4. scipy newcore compatible lower case type names (e.g. int32 not Int32)
5. scipy newcore 'dtype' keyword and .dtypechar attribute.
II. BUGS FIXED / CLOSED
