Hi All,

On behalf of the NumPy team I am pleased to announce that NumPy 1.17.3 has
been released. This is a bugfix release. The Python versions supported in
this release are 3.5-3.8.

Downstream developers should use Cython >= 0.29.13 for Python 3.8 support
and OpenBLAS >= 3.7 to avoid wrong results on the Skylake architecture. The
NumP Wheels for this release can be downloaded from PyPI
<https://pypi.org/project/numpy/1.17.3/>, source archives and release notes
are available from Github


   - Wheels for Python 3.8
   - Boolean matmul fixed to use booleans instead of integers.

*Compatibility notes*

   - The seldom used PyArray_DescrCheck macro has been changed/fixed.
