Numpy arrived at version 1.9.0 and I prepared a SlackBuild for it.
Unfortunately starting with this version the compatibility layer for the
old nummeric and numarray modules got dropped. At least for me this is
not good, since I'm using some third party modules which still rely on
it. Since this may be valid for others, I prepared and think to also
submit a numpy-legacy SlackBuild for building/installing the latest
version (1.8.2) which offers the compatibility layer(*). Does anything
speak against this?
(*) To my knowledge, one cannot install both versions of numpy at the
same time. Thus there will be a conflict notice in the READMEs.
