I'm pleased to announce the release of SciPy 0.6.0:

SciPy is a package of tools for science and engineering for Python.  It includes
modules for statistics, optimization, integration, linear algebra,
Fourier transforms,
signal and image processing, ODE solvers, and more.

This release brings many bugfixes and speed improvements.

Major changes since

  * cluster
        o cleaned up kmeans code and added a kmeans2 function
           that adds several initialization methods
  * fftpack
        o fft speedups for complex data
        o major overhaul of fft source code for easier maintenance
  * interpolate
        o add Lagrange interpolating polynomial
        o fix interp1d so that it works for higher order splines
  * io
        o read and write basic .wav files
  * linalg
        o add Cholesky decomposition and solution of banded linear
           systems with Hermitian or symmetric matrices
        o add RQ decomposition
  * ndimage
        o port to NumPy API
        o fix byteswapping problem in rotate
        o better support for 64-bit platforms
  * optimize
        o nonlinear solvers module added
        o a lot of bugfixes and modernization
  * signal
        o add complex Morlet wavelet
  * sparse
        o significant performance improvements

Thank you to everybody who contributed to the recent release.
