           Summary: Make it clear what is numeric and what is numpy
           Product: Biopython
           Version: 1.45
          Platform: PC
               URL: http://www.biopython.org/DIST/docs/install/Installation.
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Documentation
        AssignedTo: biopython-dev at biopython.org
        ReportedBy: mmokrejs at ribosome.natur.cuni.cz

  although both packages are from the same source site, numpy is the newer
implementation whereas numeric is the old, deprecated implementation, right?
Why do you say in the installation docs the following?

"The Numerical Python distribution (also known an Numeric or Numpy) is a fast
implementation of arrays and associated array functionality. This is important
for a number of Biopython modules that deal with number processing. The main
web site for Numeric is: http://sourceforge.net/projects/numpy and downloads
are available from:..."

I think it is fooling.

BTW, is numpy-1.1.0 supported?
