I'm pleased to announce the release of SciPy 0.4.9.  This version adds support for NumPy version 0.9.8.  It also has enhancements to sparse matrices, including a new linear solver module with UMFPACK support, and new support for fitting conditional maximum entropy models.

This release also fixes bugs in ndimage, sparse, stats, weave, and other packages.

It is available for download from
