Y'all can test the new manylinux wheels with:

python -m pip install --upgrade pip  # upgrade to latest pip
pip install -f https://nipy.bic.berkeley.edu/manylinux --pre matplotlib

In particular, I'd love to know whether this works for you:

>>> import matplotlib
>>> matplotlib.use('tkagg')
>>> import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
>>> plt.plot(range(10))
>>> plt.show()
