I'm happy to announce that Enthought is developing a platform independent
plotting library for Python. The Chaco project, as it is named, is funded by
the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) and licensed under a BSD style
open source license. Chaco is designed for presentation quality scientific 2D
graphics on a variety of output devices. The initial targets are wxPython,
TkInter, Mac OS X, and PDF for hard copy output. It's design is extensible so
that other backends, such as OpenGL, can be added. Currently, the low-level API
for wxPython, Mac OS X, and PDF are operational.  The high level graphics
objects will be developed over the coming months.  Chaco is hosted at the SciPy
site. For more information visit:


People are invited to comment on and contribute to the project.  Chaco's
