NumPy 1.13.1 Release Notes#

This is a bugfix release for problems found in 1.13.0. The major changes are fixes for the new memory overlap detection and temporary elision as well as reversion of the removal of the boolean binary - operator. Users of 1.13.0 should upgrade.

Thr Python versions supported are 2.7 and 3.4 - 3.6. Note that the Python 3.6 wheels available from PIP are built against 3.6.1, hence will not work when used with 3.6.0 due to Python bug 29943. NumPy 1.13.2 will be released shortly after Python 3.6.2 is out to fix that problem. If you are using 3.6.0 the workaround is to upgrade to 3.6.1 or use an earlier Python version.
