Python: Pandas 0.15.0 is available

Last week, Wes McKinney gave a presentation on new features in a forthcoming release of Pandas, version 0.15.0. The big news is the inclusion of a new data type for columns in Series and DataFrame, the Categorical type. This permits the use of nominal data in analyses with Pandas now, which is a huge change, since Pandas previously has been limited to numeric data types that can be converted directly by NumPy.

I just did an update of my Python installation and got Pandas 0.15.0 today, so it is now out and available.
