Hi All,

On behalf of the NumPy team I am pleased to announce that NumPy 1.17.5 has
been released. This release fixes bugs reported against the 1.17.4 release.
The supported Python versions are 3.5-3.7. This is the last planned release
that supports Python 3.5.  Wheels for this release can be downloaded from
PyPI <https://pypi.org/project/numpy/1.17.5>, source archives and release
notes are available from Github
<https://github.com/numpy/numpy/releases/tag/v1.17.5>. Downstream
developers building this release should use Cython >= 0.29.14 and, if using
OpenBLAS, OpenBLAS >= v0.3.7.

It is recommended that developers interested in the new random bit
generators upgrade to the NumPy 1.18.x series, as it has updated
documentation and many small improvements.


   - The ``np.testing.utils`` functions have been updated from 1.19.0-dev0.
   This improves the function documentation and error messages as well
   extending the ``assert_array_compare`` function to additional types.


A total of 6 people contributed to this release.  People with a "+" by their
names contributed a patch for the first time.
