Hi All,

On behalf of the NumPy team I am pleased to announce that NumPy 1.17.2 has
been released. This release contains fixes for bugs reported against NumPy
1.17.1 along with some documentation improvements. The most important fix
is for lexsort when the keys are of type (u)int8 or (u)int16. If you are
currently using 1.17 you
should upgrade. The Python versions supported in this release are 3.5-3.7,
Python 3.8b4 should work with the released source packages, but there are
no future guarantees.

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
NumPy wheels on PyPI are built from the OpenBLAS development branch in
order to avoid those problems. Wheels for this release can be downloaded
from PyPI <https://pypi.org/project/numpy/1.17.2/>, source archives and
release notes are available from Github
