Numpy Status Update

Hi everyone

Thanks to the people who donated money to the numpy proposal, here is what I've been working on recently :

- Fixed conversion from a numpy complex number to a python complex number
- Implement the rint ufunc
- Make numpy.character usable as a dtype
- Fix ndarray(dtype=str).fill()
- Various fixes on boolean and fancy indexing

PyCon South Africa & sprint

Hi all,

For those of you that happen to be from South Africa: don't miss PyCon ZA 2013, next October 3rd and 4th! Like last year, a few of us will be there. There will be the first talk about STM getting ready (a blog post about that should follow soon).

Moreover, general sprints will continue on the weekend (5th and 6th). Afterwards, Fijal will host a longer PyPy sprint (marathon?) with me until around the 21th. You are welcome to it as well! Write to the mailing list or to fijal directly (fijall at, or simply in comments of this post.
