On behalf of a veritable army of super coders, I'm pleased to announce
the release of matplotlib 1.3.0.
Downloads are available here:
as well as through |pip|. Check with your distro for when matplotlib
1.3.0 will become packaged for your environment.
(Note: Mac .dmg installers are still forthcoming due to some issues with
the new installation approach.)
Important known issues
matplotlib no longer ships with its Python dependencies, including
dateutil, pytz, pyparsing and six. When installing from source or |pip|,
|pip| will install these for you automatically. When installing from
packages (on Linux distributions, MacPorts, homebrew etc.) these
dependencies should also be handled automatically. The Windows binary
installers do not include or install these dependencies.
You may need to remove any old matplotlib installations before
installing 1.3.0 to ensure matplotlib has access to the latest versions
of these dependencies.
The following backends have been removed: QtAgg (Qt version 3.x only),
FlktAgg and Emf.
For a complete list of removed features, see
* xkcd-style sketch plotting
* webagg backend for displaying and interacting with plots in a web
* event plots
* triangular grid interpolation
* control of baselines in stackplot
* many improvements to text and color handling
For a complete list of what's new, see
Have fun, and enjoy matplotlib!
