NumPy 1.17.1 Release Notes#
This release contains a number of fixes for bugs reported against NumPy 1.17.0 along with a few documentation and build improvements. The Python versions supported are 3.5-3.7, note that Python 2.7 has been dropped. Python 3.8b3 should work with the released source packages, but there are no future guarantees.
Downstream developers should use Cython >= 0.29.13 for Python 3.8 support and OpenBLAS >= 3.7 to avoid problems on the Skylake architecture. The NumPy wheels on PyPI are built from the OpenBLAS development branch in order to avoid those problems.
