1.3.1rc1 tagged

I have tagged a 1.3.1 release candidate. Congrats to everyone who reported bugs and worked hard to fix them for this release.

As this is only a bugfix release, it should hopefully not take as long to get through the release candidate process. I hope to hear from all the packagers over the next week or two, and barring no issues, I will tag this as 1.3.1 final.

The tarball is available here:

https://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/matplotlib/matplotlib/matplotlib-1.3.1rc1.tar.gz

The changelog is copied below:

New in 1.3.1

···

------------

1.3.1 is a bugfix release, primarily dealing with improved setup and
handling of dependencies, and correcting and enhancing the
documentation.

The following changes were made in 1.3.1 since 1.3.0.

Enhancements


- Added a context manager for creating multi-page pdfs (see
   `matplotlib.backends.backend_pdf.PdfPages`).

- The WebAgg backend should no have lower latency over heterogeneous
   Internet connections.

Bug fixes
`````````

\- Histogram plots now contain the endline\.

\- Fixes to the Molleweide projection\.

\- Handling recent fonts from Microsoft and Macintosh\-style fonts with
   non\-ascii metadata is improved\.

\- Hatching of fill between plots now works correctly in the PDF
   backend\.

\- Tight bounding box support now works in the PGF backend\.

\- Transparent figures now display correctly in the Qt4Agg backend\.

\- Drawing lines from one subplot to another now works\.

\- Unit handling on masked arrays has been improved\.

Setup and dependencies
  • Now works with any version of pyparsing 1.5.6 or later, without displaying
    hundreds of warnings.

  • Now works with 64-bit versions of Ghostscript on MS-Windows.

  • When installing from source into an environment without Numpy, Numpy
    will first be downloaded and built and then used to build
    matplotlib.

  • Externally installed backends are now always imported using a
    fully-qualified path to the module.

  • Works with newer version of wxPython.

  • Can now build with a PyCXX installed globally on the system from source.

  • Better detection of Gtk3 dependencies.

Testing


\- Tests should now work in non\-English locales\.

\- PEP8 conformance tests now report on locations of issues\.

Hello,

`matplotlib-1.3.1rc1.tar.gz\matplotlib-1.3.1rc1\lib\matplotlib.egg-info\SOURCES.txt` contains absolute paths to `/usr/src/CXX/*.cxx` files and therefore distutils fails to build installers on Windows. Deleting the .egg-info directory works for me.

Not really. gswin64c.exe is detected in __init__.py but apparently not used in the PS backend:

Thanks for letting me know -- obviously not good. I'll have a look.

Thanks for pointing this out. The original bug I think was related to not being able to run the tests. The ps backend should be updated to use the same ghostscript finding routines as elsewhere. I'll get this taken care of for 1.3.1rc2.

Is that "should not"?

Thanks,

It's actually "should now". Thanks for the report. I'll fix it in the repository.
