NumPy 1.20.0rc2 released

Charles R Harris
Hi All,

On behalf of the NumPy team I am pleased to announce the release of NumPy 1.20.0rc2. This NumPy release is the largest to date, containing some 670 merged pull requests contributed by 184 people. See the list of highlights below. The Python versions supported for this release are 3.7-3.9, support for Python 3.6 has been dropped. Wheels can be downloaded from PyPI; source archives, release notes, and wheel hashes are available on Github. Linux users will need pip >= 0.19.3 in order to install manylinux2010 and manylinux2014 wheels.

Highlights
  • Annotations for NumPy functions. This work is ongoing and improvements can be expected pending feedback from users.
  • Wider use of SIMD to increase execution speed of ufuncs. Much work has been done in introducing universal functions that will ease use of modern features across different hardware platforms. This work is ongoing.
  • Preliminary work in changing the dtype and casting implementations in order to provide an easier path to extending dtypes. This work is ongoing but enough has been done to allow experimentation and feedback.
  • Extensive documentation improvements comprising some 185 PR merges. This work is ongoing and part of the larger project to improve NumPy's online presence and usefulness to new users.
  • Further cleanups related to removing Python 2.7. This improves code readability and removes technical debt.
  • Preliminary support for the upcoming Cython 3.0.
