[Matplotlib-users] default cmap in ver. 2.0

Hi all,

I just installed matplotlib 2.0.  I was surprised that when I created an
image plot using imshow I had the same old jet colormap instead of
viridis.  I looked in my ~/.confg/matplotlib/matplotlibrc file and the
image.cmap line was commented out, so that didn't seem to be the problem.
Just to be sure, I moved that one aside and copied the new one under the
matplotlib distribution to its place (which also has that line commented
out).  I still get the same result.  Obviously I can fix this either by
uncommenting that line or by specifying the cmap in calls to imshow.  But
I'm curious, where are those defaults stored?
