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