On behalf of the scipy development team, I am pleased to announce the
second release candidate for scipy 0.18.0.

Please test it --- both the release itself on your machines and your
code against this release --- and report results on the issue tracker
or scipy-dev mailing list.

Source tarballs and release notes are available from Github releases,

OS X and Linux wheels are being built now, and I will upload them to
PyPI when they are ready.

I would like to flag two areas where additional scrutiny and testing
would be most appreciated:

* Precision loss in some corner cases was reported to occur on Fedora
23 and 24 with OpenBLAS, see

* On Windows, a CRT incompatibility was reported when building with
MSVC and MKL, see https://github.com/scipy/scipy/issues/6336.

There are additional issues on s390x
(https://github.com/scipy/scipy/issues/6338), so if you are using this
platform, we appreciate your help resolving them.

The (revised) release schedule is:

25 July:  final release

Thanks to everyone who contributed!
