I just uploaded a new release to http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net.
* Several bug fixes in the GTK backend which affected interactive
mode and figure resizing. See examples/interactive2.py in the new
* The legend command from CVS has been added. See
* Some bugs regarding alternate ways of specifying colors have been
ironed out (you can now use hex strings or 0-1 RGB tuples anywhere
a color format string is supported ). See examples/color_demo.py
Let me know of any problems you find.
