Compiled against numpy-0.9.6

Correct. I assume Charlie meant that the win32 binaries he compiled
were compiled with numpy-0.9.6. Since the various numpy releases are
not binary compatible, if you are using matplotlib-0.87.2 with numpy
on win32, you will need numpy-0.9.6. But I believe the win32 binaries
also have Numeric and numarray support compiled in.

We have talked about this but there are no concrete plans at this
point. We would like to see widespread adoption of numpy first. I
think this is feasible in a 6 month time frame, as most of the
lingering issues (eg, nd_image) are rapidly falling into place.

I always compile the binaries against all 3 of the latest array libs.
For 0.87.2 I used:

numarray-1.5.1
Numeric-24.2
numpy-0.9.6

Numpy has been the moving target as of late, so that is why I
mentioned it specifically.

Just for clarification, the various Numeric and numarray releases are
not binary compatible, either. But numpy checks version numbers and
fails loudly if they don't match, while Numeric and numarray continue
silently trying to run, resulting in segfaults or undefined behavior
later on.
