Installing and upgrading#

Information on how to install SciPy and/or the SciPy Stack (a larger set of packages for scientific computing with Python) can be found at

It is recommended that users use a scientific Python distribution or binaries for their platform. If building from source is required, documentation about that can be found at Building from sources.

If you already have SciPy installed and want to upgrade to a newer version, use the same install mechanism as you have used to install SciPy before. Before upgrading to a newer version, it is recommended to check that your own code does not use any deprecated SciPy functionality. To do so, run your code with python -Wd.
