[Numpy-discussion] Plans for Numpy 1.4.0 and scipy 0.8.0

I'm still using 2.4, but I plan to go to 2.5 when the project we're doing now reaches a stable point later this year.  Not sure after that.  I know it's real work to keep several versions going, but I sense there are a lot of people in the 2.4 - 2.5 window.  I guess 2.6 is a mini step toward 3.0.  The problem with each step is that all the libraries we rely on have to be ugraded to that step or we might lose the functionality of that library.  For me that's a killer. I have to take a good look at all of them before the upgrade or a big project will take a fatal hit.

I vote against dropping support for python 2.5. Personally I have no 
incentive to upgrade to 2.6 and am very happy with 2.5.
