I'd like to release a Numeric 24.0  to get the array interface out 
there.   There are also some other bug fixes in Numeric 24.0

Here is the list so far from Numeric 23.7

[Greenfield]  Changed so a[0,0] and a[0][0] returns same type when a is 
2-d of Int16
[unreported]  Added array interface
[unreported]  Allow Long Integers to be used in slices
[1123145]     Handle mu==0.0 appropiately in ranlib/ignpoi.
[unreported]  Return error info in ranlib instead of printing it to stderr
[1151892]     dot() would quit python with zero-sized arrays when using
              dotblas. The BLAS routines *gemv and *gemm need LDA >= 1.
[unreported]  Fixed empty for Object arrays

Version 23.8  March 2005
[Cooke]       Fixed more 64-bit issues (patch 117603)
[unreported]  Changed arrayfnsmodule back to PyArray_INT where the code
              typecasts to (int *).  Changed CanCastSafely to check
              if sizeof(long) == sizeof(int)

I'll wait a little bit to allow last minute bug fixes to go in, but I'd 
realy like to see this release get out there.  For users of Numeric 
 >23.7 try
Numeric.empty((10,20),'O')  if you want to see an *interesting* bug that 
is fixed in CVS.
