We've finally squashed all of the bugs slated for 1.2.1, so I have
tagged a 1.2.1rc1 for testing. This is a bugfix release, and improves
on the overall quality of 1.2.0. Thanks to everyone who worked hard to
fix a multitude of papercuts. I'll provide a more detailed list of
changes in the announcement of the final version.

It can be downloaded from the SF files server here:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/matplotlib/files/matplotlib/matplotlib-1.2.1rc
1/matplotlib-1.2.1rc1.tar.gz/download

Packagers: I don't expect a lot of glitches as nothing significant has
changed about the build since 1.2.0, but now is the best time to try to
build for your various packaging systems and report back any problems.
If all goes well, I plan to make a final release in approximately two
weeks on March 25.

I uploaded two Mac binaries to SourceForge:
- A 10.3-compatible version built and tested on 10.4
- A 10.6-compatible version built and tested on 10.8 (I should also test
it on 10.6 but don't have time right now).

They are both built against numpy 1.6.2, which is not ideal, but is the
best I can do at the moment.

I think that's fine for now -- for the rc it's most important to just make sure that working packages *can* be built. We can reevaluate what Numpy version to use for the final release, and let me know if we should push back the final release date to accomodate rejiggering your development environment etc.

Cheers,
Mike
