Python interface compatibility updates
The Python interface, as it stands, is not compatible with Python3 and with the recent versions of the Numpy API.
I've committed, for the moment in the branch
py3fixes, a small set of improvements:
- numpy now gets detected correctly in both Python2 and Python3 environments (932e1a00);
- calls to the deprecated
PyArray_FromDimsAndData()have been replaces with calls to
- other small compatibility fixes
If anyone can test and report, it will be greatly appreciated.
