I'm pleased to announce the availability of the second beta release of
NumPy 1.7.0b2.

Sources and binary installers can be found at

Please test this release and report any issues on the numpy-discussion
mailing list. Since beta1, we've fixed most of the known (back then)
issues, except:


And many other issues that were reported since the beta1 release. The
log of changes is attached. The full list of issues that we still need
to work on is at:


Any help is welcome, the best is to send a PR fixing any of the issues
-- against master, and I'll then back-port it to the release branch
(unless it is something release specific, in which case just send the
PR against the release branch).
