> Hey all,
> We are pleased to finally announce the release of matplotlib 1.5.0!  It has
> been over a year since the last feature release and we have had over 230
> people contribute to this cycle.
> This release of matplotlib has several major new features including
>  - Auto-redraw using the object-oriented API in interactive mode.
>  - Most plotting functions now support labeled data API [Jan Schulz].
>  - Color cycling has extended to all style properties [Ben Root].
>  - Four new perceptually uniform color maps, including the soon-to-be
> default 'viridis'. [Stefan van der Walt and Nathaniel Smith].
>  - More included style sheets.
>  - Many small plotting improvements.
>  - Proposed new framework for managing the GUI toolbar and tools.
>  - Pixel-value on mouse over for imshow [Steven Silvester]
> For demos of some of these features in action see this notebook:
>  https://gist.github.com/tacaswell/72b0d579aeb54d4fbf87
> which is version of the talk I presented at scipy, pydata Seattle and
> pygotham this summer.  There will be more in-depth demos of the new
> features coming.
> This release has a new required dependency,  cycler
> <http://matplotlib.org/cycler> , for composing complex style cycles.
> In 1.5.0 we have dropped official support for python 2.6 and 3.3.
> The next matplotlib release will be the 2.0 default-style-only release,
> planned for 1-2 months from now.
> Tom
