Now, the Python development team has rolled NumPy version 1.17.0 out with many new features, improvements, and changes to increase its performance.
This version update includes a new extensible numpy.random module, new radix sort, and timsort sorting methods, and a NumPy pocketfft FFT implementation for accurate transforms and better handling of datasets of prime length.
And now in this version, overriding numpy functions have also been added as default functionality.
NumPy 1.17.0 will also support Python 3.5 – 3.7.
This version also includes four selectable random number generators and improved seeding designed for use in parallel processes.
