SciPy at 1.0

SciPy 1.0 was announced this morning. Ralf Gommers wrote:

A version number should reflect the maturity of a project - and SciPy was a mature and stable library that is heavily used in production settings for a long time already. From that perspective, the 1.0 version number is long overdue.
