We’ve had a number of major product development efforts underway over the last year, and we’re pleased to share a lot of new announcements for 2017:
A New Chapter for the Enthought Python Distribution (EPD):
Python 3 and Intel MKL 2017
In 2004, Enthought released the first “Python: Enthought Edition,” a Python package distribution tailored for a scientific and analytic audience. In 2008 this became the Enthought Python Distribution (EPD), a self-contained installer with the
"enpkg" command-line tool to update and manage packages. Since then, over a million users have benefited from Enthought’s tested, pre-compiled set of Python packages, allowing them to focus on their science by eliminating the hassle of setting up tools.
Fast forward to 2017, and we now offer over 450 Python packages and a new era for the Enthought Python Distribution; access to all of the packages in the new EPD is completely free to all users and includes packages and runtimes for both Python 2 and Python 3 with some exciting new additions. Our ever-growing list of packages includes, for example, the 2017 release of the MKL (Math Kernel Library), the fruit of an ongoing collaboration with Intel.
