Hi all,

We are pleased to announce the release of Matplotlib 3.8.1.

Pre-built wheels are available for most major platforms, and can be
installed using `pip install matplotlib==3.8.1`. Other packages may
also be available already; please check with your preferred source.

This is the first bugfix release of the 3.8 series.

The 3.8.1 release represents the work of 27 authors over 95 pull requests, and we thank them for their contributions.

For further details, please see the release notes:
and the milestone on GitHub:

This release contains several bug fixes and adjustments:

- Bump setuptools required version because of setuptools_scm v8
- Update ``find_nearest_contour`` and revert contour deprecations
- ``allsegs`` and ``allkinds`` return individual segments
- Restore default behavior of hexbin mincnt with C provided
- Try/except import of Axes3D
- Ensure valid path mangling for ContourLabeler
- BLD: Remove development dependencies from sdists
- FIX 2-tuple of colors in to_rgba_array
- Fix issue with non-string labels and legend
- Fix issue with locale comma when not using math text
- Various type hinting improvements
- Various documentation improvements
- Improvements to the MacOS backend

For packagers, note that this release introduces a lower bound of setuptools=64, for compatibility
with recent versions of setuptools_scm.

This release tag is signed by my GPG key. The fingerprint is:

EB83 2218 7FD4 5119 2E43 0A72 79B3 FEC4 56F1 2599

and it is also used to sign this message.
Note that PyPI no longer supports GPG signing of uploaded files, so the
sdist is no longer signed.
