Numba 0.11 is now available which brings experimental support for NumPy
datetime64 and timedelta64 types with Numba's "nopython" mode. Supported
functionality includes NumPy datetime and timedelta objects as numba
function arguments and return values, creating new datetime and timedelta
objects inside numba functions, and basic arithmetic operations between
datetimes and timedeltas. When compiled with "nopython" turned on, datetime
and timedelta objects will be translated to low level LLVM structures.

Version 0.11
* Experimental support for NumPy datetime64 and timedelta64 types




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.
