========================== SciPy 0.12.0 Release Notes ========================== .. contents:: SciPy 0.12.0 is the culmination of 7 months of hard work. It contains many new features, numerous bug-fixes, improved test coverage and better documentation. There have been a number of deprecations and API changes in this release, which are documented below. All users are encouraged to upgrade to this release, as there are a large number of bug-fixes and optimizations. Moreover, our development attention will now shift to bug-fix releases on the 0.12.x branch, and on adding new features on the master branch. Some of the highlights of this release are: - Completed QHull wrappers in scipy.spatial. - cKDTree now a drop-in replacement for KDTree. - A new global optimizer, basinhopping. - Support for Python 2 and Python 3 from the same code base (no more 2to3). This release requires Python 2.6, 2.7 or 3.1-3.3 and NumPy 1.5.1 or greater. Support for Python 2.4 and 2.5 has been dropped as of this release. New features ============ ``scipy.spatial`` improvements ------------------------------ cKDTree feature-complete ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Cython version of KDTree, cKDTree, is now feature-complete. Most operations (construction, query, query_ball_point, query_pairs, count_neighbors and sparse_distance_matrix) are between 200 and 1000 times faster in cKDTree than in KDTree. With very minor caveats, cKDTree has exactly the same interface as KDTree, and can be used as a drop-in replacement. Voronoi diagrams and convex hulls ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ `scipy.spatial` now contains functionality for computing Voronoi diagrams and convex hulls using the Qhull library. (Delaunay triangulation was available since Scipy 0.9.0.) Delaunay improvements ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ It's now possible to pass in custom Qhull options in Delaunay triangulation. Coplanar points are now also recorded, if present. Incremental construction of Delaunay triangulations is now also possible. Spectral estimators (``scipy.signal``) -------------------------------------- The functions ``scipy.signal.periodogram`` and ``scipy.signal.welch`` were added, providing DFT-based spectral estimators. ``scipy.optimize`` improvements ------------------------------- Callback functions in L-BFGS-B and TNC ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ A callback mechanism was added to L-BFGS-B and TNC minimization solvers. Basin hopping global optimization (``scipy.optimize.basinhopping``) ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ A new global optimization algorithm. Basinhopping is designed to efficiently find the global minimum of a smooth function. ``scipy.special`` improvements ------------------------------ Revised complex error functions ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ The computation of special functions related to the error function now uses a new `Faddeeva library from MIT <http://ab-initio.mit.edu/Faddeeva>`__ which increases their numerical precision. The scaled and imaginary error functions ``erfcx`` and ``erfi`` were also added, and the Dawson integral ``dawsn`` can now be evaluated for a complex argument. Faster orthogonal polynomials ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Evaluation of orthogonal polynomials (the ``eval_*`` routines) in now faster in ``scipy.special``, and their ``out=`` argument functions properly. ``scipy.sparse.linalg`` features -------------------------------- - In ``scipy.sparse.linalg.spsolve``, the ``b`` argument can now be either a vector or a matrix. - ``scipy.sparse.linalg.inv`` was added. This uses ``spsolve`` to compute a sparse matrix inverse. - ``scipy.sparse.linalg.expm`` was added. This computes the exponential of a sparse matrix using a similar algorithm to the existing dense array implementation in ``scipy.linalg.expm``. Listing Matlab(R) file contents in ``scipy.io`` ----------------------------------------------- A new function ``whosmat`` is available in ``scipy.io`` for inspecting contents of MAT files without reading them to memory. Documented BLAS and LAPACK low-level interfaces (``scipy.linalg``) ------------------------------------------------------------------ The modules `scipy.linalg.blas` and `scipy.linalg.lapack` can be used to access low-level BLAS and LAPACK functions. Polynomial interpolation improvements (``scipy.interpolate``) ------------------------------------------------------------- The barycentric, Krogh, piecewise and pchip polynomial interpolators in ``scipy.interpolate`` accept now an ``axis`` argument. Deprecated features =================== `scipy.lib.lapack` ------------------ The module `scipy.lib.lapack` is deprecated. You can use `scipy.linalg.lapack` instead. The module `scipy.lib.blas` was deprecated earlier in Scipy 0.10.0. `fblas` and `cblas` ------------------- Accessing the modules `scipy.linalg.fblas`, `cblas`, `flapack`, `clapack` is deprecated. Instead, use the modules `scipy.linalg.lapack` and `scipy.linalg.blas`. Backwards incompatible changes ============================== Removal of ``scipy.io.save_as_module`` -------------------------------------- The function ``scipy.io.save_as_module`` was deprecated in Scipy 0.11.0, and is now removed. Its private support modules ``scipy.io.dumbdbm_patched`` and ``scipy.io.dumb_shelve`` are also removed.
