on behalf of the Numba community I am super excited to announce the immediate availability of the second round of release candidates: Numba 0.54.0 RC2 and llvmlite 0.37.0 RC2! In addition to the availability of wheels from PyPi (now also available for aarch64/RaspberryPi) the NumPy version number is now clamped at
1.20.* for stability purposes and the lineinfo emission for debugging purposes has been fixed.
Conda packages can be installed from the
numba channel on anaconda.org with
conda install -c numba numba=0.54.0rc2
conda install -c numba llvmlite=v0.37.0rc2
Binary wheels are available from PyPi as pre-releases. You should be able to install them with:
pip install --pre numba
pip install --pre llvmlite
If you have time and inclination, please do test these release candidates with your own libraries and tools and report back any issues you may encounter! Especially folks with a RaspberryPi are encouraged to try the wheels!
Thank you again to all contributors for helping to improve Numba!
