is now uploaded
and tagged on the main repository master branch:


Likewise I've uploaded the files so far to the official DIST repo for

VOLUNTEERS PLEASE: Could we have a couple of people check some of the
Windows installers work for you, and another try the tar-ball or zip
file and building
from source and running the tests?

The new Tutorial is already live:


And the API documentation from epydoc:


As usual, this flagged some reStructuredText errors as we don't yet lint that
via TravisCI - see https://github.com/twolfson/restructuredtext-lint/issues/34
and https://github.com/PyCQA/pydocstyle/issues/245

If there are no issues I'll update the website, upload to PyPI, and make the
formal announcement (which will be based on the NEWS.rst file).
