Hi All,

On behalf of the NumPy team I am pleased to announce the release of NumPy
1.16.2. This is a quick release fixing several problems encountered on
Windows. The Python versions supported are 2.7 and 3.5-3.7. The Windows
problems addressed are:

   - DLL load problems for NumPy wheels on Windows,
   - distutils command line parsing on Windows.

There is also a regression fix correcting signed zeros produced by divmod,
see the release notes for details. Downstream developers building this
release should use Cython >= 0.29.2 and, if using OpenBLAS, OpenBLAS >

If you are installing using pip, you may encounter a problem with older
installed versions of NumPy that pip did not delete becoming mixed with the
current version, resulting in an ``ImportError``. That problem is
common on Debian derived distributions due to a modified pip.  The fix is
to make sure all previous NumPy versions installed by pip have been
removed. See #12736 <https://github.com/numpy/numpy/issues/12736> for
discussion of the issue.

Wheels for this release can be downloaded from PyPI
<https://pypi.org/project/numpy/1.16.2/>, source archives and release notes
are available from Github
