Hi, As many of you probably already know, Numpy works fully on Python 3 and Python 2, with a *single code base*, since March. This work is scheduled to be included in the next releases 1.5 and 2.0.
Porting Scipy to work on Python 3 has proved to be much less work, and will probably be finished "soon". (Ongoing work is here: http:// github.com/cournape/scipy3/commits/py3k , http://github.com/pv/scipy-work/ commits/py3k ) For those who are interested in already starting to port their stuff to Python 3, you can use Numpy's SVN trunk version. Grab it: svn clone http://svn.scipy.org/svn/numpy/trunk/ numpy cd numpy python3 setup.py build An important point is that supporting Python 3 and Python 2 in the same code base can be done, and it is not very difficult either. It is also much preferable from the maintenance POV to creating separate branches for Python 2 and 3. We attempted to log changes needed in Numpy at http://projects.scipy.org/numpy/browser/trunk/doc/Py3K.txt which may be useful (although not completely up-to-date) information for people wanting to do make the same transition in their own code.
