This release contains many new features.  The highlights include:

  - the object oriented API will now automatically re-draw the figure when working in the command line
  - automatic unpacking of labeled data into most plotting functions
  - arbitrary style cycling
  - four new perceptually linear color maps
  - mouse-over for pixel values with `imshow`
  - many new rcparams
In addition there are significant improvements to `nbagg` and a complete overhaul of the c++ bindings to AGG.
