[Matplotlib-devel] Any plans to change the defaults in matplotlibrc

The omnibus PR containing most of the style changes for 2.x is here:

https://github.com/matplotlib/matplotlib/pull/5774

This isn't everything -- some changes are already in 2.x and master.
Others are in separate PRs with 2.0 as a milestone.

The new changes are being made against 2.x and are forward-ported to master.

Also, to answer Isaac's original suggestion: if you have a matplotlibrc
that you think would be useful for others, feel free to submit it as a
style.  Since 1.4, we've had a style infrastructure that makes it easy for
users to switch styles.  While the default style has to be very carefully
designed so as to provide "reasonable behavior for the most common cases",
individual styles do not and can be more aggressively different.
