NumPy-1.0a2 is now available at the usual location:


I've removed the fftmodule for this iteration while I work out the best
way to handle the standard library.

This version contains many small bug fixes, a large number of name
changes and a new standard for default axes.

Axis 0 is now always the default axis.  This is the one feature in
alpha2 that I think has a reasonable chance of changing incompatibly
before the beta1 release.

There is also a script fixnames.py that can be used to fix names from
the 1.0a1 conventions to 1.0a2.  Read INSTALL for more information on

Please do try the dynamic installation thing again and let me know your
successes and failures on different platforms.

As usual, have fun and let me know how it goes - Jim
