I am pleased to announce that EPD (Enthought Python Distribution)
version 7.1 has been released.  The most significant change is the
addition of an "EPD Free" version, which has its own very liberal
license, and can be downloaded and used free of any charge by
anyone (not only academics).  "EPD Free" includes a subset of the
packages included in the full EPD.  The highlights of this subset are:
numpy, scipy, matplotlib, traits and chaco.  To see which libraries
are included in the free vs. full version, please see:

In addition we have opened our PyPI build mirror for everyone.
This means that one can type "enpkg xyz" for 10,000+ packages.
However, there are still benefits to becoming an EPD subscriber.

Apart from the addition of "EPD Free", this release includes updates
to over 30 packages, including numpy, scipy, ipython and ETS.
We have also added PySide, Qt and MDP to this release.  Please find the
complete list of additions, updates and bug fixes in the change log:
