NumPy 1.10.1 Release Notes

This release deals with a few build problems that showed up in 1.10.0. Most users would not have seen these problems. The differences are:

  • Compiling with msvc9 or msvc10 for 32 bit Windows now requires SSE2. This was the easiest fix for what looked to be some miscompiled code when SSE2 was not used. If you need to compile for 32 bit Windows systems without SSE2 support, mingw32 should still work.

  • Make compiling with VS2008 python2.7 SDK easier

  • Change Intel compiler options so that code will also be generated to support systems without SSE4.2.

  • Some _config test functions needed an explicit integer return in order to avoid the openSUSE rpmlinter erring out.

  • We ran into a problem with pipy not allowing reuse of filenames and a resulting proliferation of ..*.postN releases. Not only were the names getting out of hand, some packages were unable to work with the postN suffix.

Numpy 1.10.1 supports Python 2.6 - 2.7 and 3.2 - 3.5.
