On behalf of the NumPy team I am pleased to announce that NumPy 1.17.5 has been released. This release fixes bugs reported against the 1.17.4 release. The supported Python versions are 3.5-3.7. This is the last planned release that supports Python 3.5. Wheels for this release can be downloaded from PyPI, source archives and release notes are available from Github. Downstream developers building this release should use Cython >= 0.29.14 and, if using OpenBLAS, OpenBLAS >= v0.3.7.
It is recommended that developers interested in the new random bit
generators upgrade to the NumPy 1.18.x series, as it has updated
documentation and many small improvements.
The ``np.testing.utils`` functions have been updated from 1.19.0-dev0. This improves the function documentation and error messages as well extending the ``assert_array_compare`` function to additional types.
