Python(x, y) 2.7.2.2 Released!

We are pleased to announce that Python(x,y) 2.7.2.2 has been released. This release was delayed for 3 months - both Pierre and me could not spare as much time as we wanted too.

The focus of this version was the numerous reported installation issues. Also, many packages were updated and some new ones added.

The next release will be based on Python 2.7.3.

Python(x,y) is a free Python distribution providing a ready-to-use scientific development software for numerical computations, data analysis and data visualization based on Python programming language, Qt graphical user interfaces (and development framework) and Spyder interactive development environment. Its purpose is to help scientific programmers used to interpreted languages (such as MATLAB or IDL) or compiled languages (C/C++ or Fortran) to switch to Python.
