It is my pleasure to announce the release of version 0.9.0 of the
Pythran compiler, a compiler for numerical kernels written in Python.
It is available for download on PyPI;
pip install pythran
And on Conda through conda-forge:
conda install -c conda-forge pythran
The major change of this release is undoubtedly the use of xsimd  as
the new vectorization engine, which in turns enables vectorization of
complex number expressions! All the details are in the changelog reproduced below.
And an outstanding new: looks like Pythran is used at least in one
research team at Facebook \o/
In spite of the short window, we received *a lot* of bug report, thanks
a lot to @DerWeh, @KOLANICH, @RalphFS, @ashwinvis, @diorcety,
@h-vetinari, @jeanlaroche, @lw3259111, @paugier, @vgroff for reporting
and sometimes fixing issues. Special thanks go to @wolfv and
@JohanMabille for the xsimd
We're getting closer to 1.0, which will probably be the first one to
drop 2.7 support (goal: 2020).
