On behalf of the NumPy team I am pleased to announce the release of NumPy 1.21.2. NumPy 1.21.2 is a maintenance release that fixes bugs discovered after 1.21.1. It also provides 64 bit manylinux Python 3.10.0rc1 wheels for downstream testing. Note that Python 3.10 is not yet final. There is also preliminary support for Windows on ARM64 builds, but there is no OpenBLAS for that platform and no wheels are available.
The Python versions supported for this release are 3.7-3.9. The 1.21.2 release is compatible with Python 3.10.0rc1 and Python 3.10 will be officially supported after it is released. The previous problems with gcc-11.1 have been fixed by gcc-11.2, check your version if you are using gcc-11. Wheels can be downloaded from PyPI https://pypi.org/project/numpy/1.21.2/; source archives, release notes, and wheel hashes are available on Github https://github.com/numpy/numpy/releases/tag/v1.21.2. Linux users will need pip >= 0.19.3 in order to install manylinux2010 and manylinux2014 wheels.
