Numba 0.55.0 and llvmlite 0.38.0 final release

Hi Everyone,

Numba 0.55.0 and llvmlite 0.38.0 are now available.

NOTE: Due to NumPy CVE-2021-33430 this release has bypassed the usual release process so as to promptly provide a Numba release that supports NumPy 1.21. A single release candidate (RC1) was made and a few issues were reported, these are summarised as follows and will be fixed in a subsequent 0.55.1 release.

Known issues with this release:

Highlights of core changes:

  • Support for NVIDIA’s CUDA Python bindings.
  • Some more NumPy functions are now supported.
