after half a year of development, many community pull requests and a lot of feedback and good ideas in online discussions and at conferences, I'm proud to announce the release of Cython 0.29.
What is Cython? In case you didn't hear about Cython before, it's the most widely used statically optimising Python compiler out there. It translates Python (2/3) code to C, and makes it as easy as Python itself to tune the code all the way down into fast native code. This time, we added several new features that help with speeding up and parallelising regular Python code to escape from the limitations of the GIL. See the changelog for details.
