On behalf of the NumPy team I am pleased to announce that NumPy 1.18.3 has been released. This release contains various bug/regression fixes for the 1.18 series
The Python versions supported in this release are 3.5-3.8. Downstream developers should use Cython >= 0.29.15 for Python 3.8 support and OpenBLAS >= 3.7 to avoid errors on the Skylake architecture. Wheels for this release can be downloaded from PyPI, source archives and release notes are available from Github.
Fix for the method='eigh' and method='cholesky' options in numpy.random.multivariate_normal. Those were producing samples from the wrong distribution.
