0.98.6svn Windows

I hate to ask this question. Is there somewhere I can
download the latest svn release compiled for Windows? I have been completely
unsuccessful in compiling MPL for windows and rely on the binaries, but I need
to work with the mplot3D functionality. From what I’ve seen on Linux, it
looks great! TIA

An option to consider: run Linux in a virtual machine on a Windows
host. I have a similar situation (unrelated to MPL) and that's what I
do. Works great for me. I've tried VMware, VirtualBox, and
AndLinux. All work, but I alternate between VirtualBox (probably
because that's the one I tried first) and AndLinux.

VirtualBox was *very easy* to set up, and it Just Works (ymmv).

AndLinux is an intriguing option; it's not a Linux emulator (if that's
the right word). It runs a Linux kernel as a Windows process, so it
behaves as if it were a Windows app. Similar apparent behavior is
available in VirtualBox; I think they call it "seamless mode".
AndLinux is a little bit harder to set up than VirtualBox. I did some
**very rough** speed checks. AndLinux seems to run numpy programs at
about 80% of native Windows speed. VirtualBox is about 10% slower
than AndLinux. (That was *one* test on *one* script.) Networking
works fine in both. I've compiled Sage, and ran a Sage notebook
webserver from both VirtualBox and AndLinux, accessing the server from
another machine. Everything works.

This isn't the most current version, but it is a build from the SVN
branch a while ago.

http://code.patricktmarsh.com/builds/py2.5_mpl-0.98.6svn.win32.exe

The machine I used to build this took a dive so I no longer have a
working development environment so I can't build a more current .exe
for you. Maybe in a week or two I'll have more time, but based on my
schedule, I doubt it.
