September donations and thank you to the Python Software Foundation!

Hello everyone!

We would like to show you a short update on the PyPy funding. We gathered a total of $15,986 in the month of September and as per earlier agreement, the Python Software Foundation donated $10,000 to PyPy. We would like to thank everyone participating and the PSF in particular for supporting the PyPy project and making our work possible!

We've been working hard on the goals outlined in the funding proposals.

  • PyPy Python 3 support has been in beta for a while and it's already being used by many people, as seen per the number of reported bugs. We're currently supporting 3.2, planning on moving towards 3.4 in the future.
  • Software Transactional Memory has been a successful research project, with first real world results shown during the Warsaw sprint.
  • More detailed update on numpy will be published soon. A little spoiler is that we're planning on addressing matplotlib, scipy and the larger ecosystem to some extent. Stay tuned!

Again, thanks to everyone who donated and happy Thanksgiving to everyone on that side of the world!

fijal and the entire PyPy team

Fantastic work!

I'm a Python 3 user, as such the PyPy3 was great for me!

And good news for Numpypy, it would indeed be awesome for supporting the numeric ecosystem.

It would be amazing if pypy supported numpy and matplotlib!!

This is great news! I've been waiting for scipy and matplotlib for a while, now it's finally on the roadmap.
