Hi all,

I'm happy to announce pandas 0.22.0 has been released.

This is a major release from 0.21.1 and includes a single, API-breaking
change. We recommend that all users upgrade to this version after carefully
reading the release note.

The only changes are:

   - The sum of an empty or all-*NA* Series is now 0
   - The product of an empty or all-*NA* Series is now 1
   - We’ve added a min_count parameter to .sum() and .prod() controlling
   the minimum number of valid values for the result to be valid. If fewer
   than min_count non-*NA* values are present, the result is *NA*. The
   default is 0. To return NaN, the 0.21 behavior, use min_count=1.

See the pandas 0.22.0 whatsnew
overview for further explanation of all the places in the library this

Additionally, it has the broader goal of becoming the most powerful and
flexible open source data analysis / manipulation tool available in any
