========================= Announcing Numexpr 2.5.1 =========================
Numexpr is a fast numerical expression evaluator for NumPy. With it, expressions that operate on arrays (like "3*a+4*b") are accelerated and use less memory than doing the same calculation in Python.
It wears multi-threaded capabilities, as well as support for Intel's MKL (Math Kernel Library), which allows an extremely fast evaluation of transcendental functions (sin, cos, tan, exp, log...) while squeezing the last drop of performance out of your multi-core processors. Look here for a some benchmarks of numexpr using MKL:
Its only dependency is NumPy (MKL is optional), so it works well as an easy-to-deploy, easy-to-use, computational engine for projects that don't want to adopt other solutions requiring more heavy dependencies.
What's new ==========
Fixed a critical bug that caused wrong evaluations of log10() and conj(). These produced wrong results when numexpr was compiled with Intel's MKL (which is a popular build since Anaconda ships it by default) and non-contiguous data. This is considered a *critical* bug and upgrading is highly recommended. Thanks to Arne de Laat and Tom Kooij for reporting and providing a test unit.
