I just build numpy and scipy from source so I do not know how you get 
Python 3 or which Ubuntu versions include recent numpy versions (there 
is a upcoming release that will probably contain a more recent numpy). 
It is very easy to install numpy and scipy from source on Linux although 
it is important that Blas/Lapack/Altas are built and installed correctly 
(I just use my distro's package).

Please see the following link for more details:
There was also a recent post on the list as well.
