Numba 0.10 has some new interesting features, thanks to some new
contributors. In short, it has a code annotation tool, builtins min,
max, enumerate and zip, a parallel range (open sourced from numbapro)
and support for the raise statement. Many thanks to Eugene Toder, Jay
Bourque and Björn Linse.

Numba is an just-in-time specializing compiler which compiles
annotated Python and NumPy code to LLVM (through decorators). Its goal
is to seamlessly integrate with the Python scientific software stack
and produce optimized native code, as well as integrate with native
foreign languages.
