1.2.0rc2 is tagged and uploaded

I have tagged and created a tarball for 1.2.0rc2. The githash is 656c88f3e546. The tarball is on the github download page here:

https://github.com/matplotlib/matplotlib/downloads

This includes a number of important bugfixes, including things required for creating Macintosh and Windows binaries. The Travis tests are also now passing.

I hope it will be easier for the binaries to be created this time. Once they are available at github, I will make an announcement to matplotlib-users and hopefully get some serious testing out of this thing.

Thanks for all of the hard work!

Hi Michael,

I have tagged and created a tarball for 1.2.0rc2. The githash is
656c88f3e546. The tarball is on the github download page here:

Thanks for the release!

I'm testing the Debian packaging, and I noticed that the file
lib/matplotlib/mpl-data/matplotlib.conf disappeared between 1.1.1 and
1.2.0rc1. That was a sample file that was nice to ship to users to
have an idea what can be customized. We were also shipping it into
/usr/share/matplotlib/ so a first configuration was already provided
to users. Do you have something to suggest to restore the situation? I
don't know if you like to add the file back (maybe in a different
location) or if we should point users to the doc and stop.

Cheers,

Is it just me, or are colors looking duller?

I attached before (v1.1.x) and after (v1.2.x) images.

Are those different colour maps? Do they look the same when you explicitly set cmap=cm.jet?

Is this the same colour map? To me it looks like jet or rainbow vs. coolwarm.
The latter had been endorsed by a number of people here for its visualisation
qualities [http://www.sandia.gov/~kmorel/documents/ColorMaps/];
maybe it has just become the new default?

The source of that file has always been `matplotlibrc.template` at the root of the source tree. That file is copied (by the build process) to lib/matplotlib/mpl-data/matplotlibrc, but it doesn't exist in the raw source tree. I'm not sure what matplotlib.conf is or was -- but I hope matplotlibrc.template fits the bill for the Debian package's purposes.

@Ben: Presumably your running one of the examples. Probably changed with https://github.com/matplotlib/matplotlib/pull/921

That would explain it. I forgot that the examples got modified to showcase other colormaps. I think the 3d plots need some more “pop”, though. I think I will make a PR to change them from the “coolwarm” colormap to something a bit more appealing. The coolwarm colors just look dull and unappealing.

Cheers!

This raises an important question, though… the matplotlib.org site has the older examples. That particular PR was merged 4 months ago. Is the mplot3d part of the docs not getting rebuilt?

The root of the documentation is still for 1.1.1 (the last released
version). The docs that correspond to the release candidate are
under matplotlib.org/1.2.0 (and this is linked to from the root
page). Once the 1.2.0 release is made, this will be reversed, with
1.2.0 taking the top level and 1.1.1 relegated to an “archive” at
matplotlib.org/1.1.1

ah nice, so I was using something outdated

Absolutely, thanks for the quick reply!

Nope, it still says 1.2.0rc1: http://matplotlib.org

I've noticed that running the tests with the debug flavor of python
