1.2.0 Final tagged and uploaded

Thanks again to everyone for all of their hard work. This release has been tagged and uploaded.

As per the usual drill, once we have the binaries up, I'll make an ANN on matplotlib-users.

The documentation is currently being rebuilt, and the default for matplotlib.org will update to 1.2.0 around the same time as that announcement.

Thanks again to everyone for all of their hard work.

Yep. And a fantastic memorial in its own right to the late John Hunter.

As per the usual drill, once we have the binaries up, I'll make an ANN
on matplotlib-users.

IIRC matplotlib is currently third in the list of libraries most wanted by users waiting for Python3 compatibility. I'd guess that many scientific users are aware of this wonderful milestone, but to spread the news at a minimum I'd put this on the main Python mailing list and on Python announce. Or does that happen anyway, and I'd simply forgotten about it?

I'm giving the closing keynote at PyCon Canada today, can I announce
1.2.0 offiical with py3 support then? It would be a fitting tribute
to John and the amazing work you have all put in moving the project
forward!

Don’t see why not. Thanks for the advertising!

Hi folks,

Yeah that's a great idea. Get the word out.

I did:

https://speakerdeck.com/fperez/science-and-python-a-interactively-biased-retrospective-of-a-mostly-successful-decade?slide=17

and the crowd actually erupted into spontaneous applause when I
pointed out the py3 support!

So good job to the whole team.

I also put in a slide about John pointing people to the memorial fund:

Cheers,

That's what I like to hear. I played no part in the py3 support, but
it's a pretty herculean effort. In general I feel the 1.2.0 release is
an extremely robust release.

So good job to the whole team.
