I know that 2.4 is coming, but I needed new functionality and some upgrades in numpy, scipy. I upgraded and have found no issues so far, but I was wondering if the alpha/beta team is using the new releases with it and whether anything on the list raises a flag that I should watch out for.
Here is the conda update and the module changes
