This release includes a small number of API changes, several new features,
enhancements, and performance improvements along with a large number of bug

*What is it:*

*pandas* is a Python package providing fast, flexible, and expressive data
structures designed to make working with “relational” or “labeled” data both
easy and intuitive. It aims to be the fundamental high-level building block
doing practical, real world data analysis in Python. Additionally, it has
broader goal of becoming the most powerful and flexible open source data
analysis / manipulation tool available in any language.

Highlights of this release include:

   - Support for *CategoricalIndex*, a category based index, see here
   - New section on how-to-contribute to *pandas*, see here
   - Revised "Merge, join, and concatenate" documentation, including
   graphical examples to make it easier to understand each operations, see
   here <http://pandas.pydata.org/pandas-docs/stable/merging.html>
   - New method *sample* for drawing random samples from Series, DataFrames
   and Panels. See here
   - The default *Index* printing has changed to a more uniform format, see
   - *BusinessHour* datetime-offset is now supported, see here
   - Further enhancement to the *.str* accessor to make string operations
   easier, see here
