Bug Fix Advisory numpy bug fix and enhancement update

Advisory: RHBA-2012:0986-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2012-06-20
Last updated on: 2012-06-20

Details

Updated numpy packages that fix several bugs and add various enhancements are
now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

The numpy packages provide NumPY. NumPY is an extension to the Python
programming language, which adds support for large, multi-dimensional arrays and
matrices, and a library of mathematical functions that operate on such arrays.

The numpy packages have been upgraded to upstream version 1.4.1, which provides
a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version.

This update introduces two important changes in NumPY's behavior:

* When operating on 0-d arrays, the numpy.max() function and other functions now
no longer accept axis values other than 0, -1, and None, and NumPY now raises an
error for other axis values.

* It is now no longer possible to specify an axis value greater than the
MAX_DIMS value and NumPY now raises an error under these circumstances.

Refer to the /usr/share/doc/numpy-1.4.1/1.4.0-notes.rst file for further details
about the changes. (BZ#692959)

Users of numpy are advised to upgrade to these updated numpy packages, which fix
these bugs and add these enhancements.
