NumPy 0.9.8 is a bug-fix and optimization release with a few new features. The C-API was changed, so extensions compiled against NumPy 0.9.6 will need re-compilation to avoid errors.

The C-API should be stabilizing. The next release will be 1.0 which will come out in a series of release-candidates during Summer 2006.

There were many users and developers who contributed to the fixes for this release. They deserve much praise and thanks. For details see the Trac pages where bugs are reported and fixed.

Note: The file causes segfaults in version 0.9.8 on some platforms so to get numpy.test() to run without error you should delete the file site-packages/numpy/core/tests/
