What's new in matplotlib-0.60.1

* figure images (pixel-by-pixel, not resampled) with the figimage

command. Multiple figure images (ie mosaics) with alpha blending

are supported. See

http://matplotlib.sf.net/examples/figimage_demo.py

* multiple axes images with imshow using alpha blending. See

http://matplotlib.sf.net/screenshots.html#layer_images

* unified color limit and color mapping arguments to pcolor, scatter,

imshow and figimage. Interactive control of colormap and color

scaling with new matplotlib.matlab commands jet, gray and clim.

New matplotlib rc parameters for default image params. image

origin can be upper or lower - see

http://matplotlib.sf.net/examples/image_origin.py

* colorbar -

http://matplotlib.sf.net/matplotlib.matlab.html#-colorbar - now

works with imshow, pcolor, and scatter

* new 'draw' command to redraw the figure - use this in place of

multiple calls to show. This is equivalent to doing

get_current_fig_manager().canvas.draw(), but takes less typing

* support for py2exe - see

http://matplotlib.sf.net/py2exe_examples.zip

* New finance demo shows off many of the features of matplotlib - see

screenshot at

http://matplotlib.sf.net/screenshots.html#finance_work2

* new matplotlib.matlab command 'rc' for dynamic control of rc

parameters. See

http://matplotlib.sf.net/matplotlib.matlab.html#-rc and example

http://matplotlib.sf.net/examples/customize_rc.py

* Andrew Straw submitted a dynamic_image example. The wx version is

still in progress and has some flicker problems, but the gtk version

is pretty cool -

http://matplotlib.sf.net/examples/dynamic_image_gtkagg.py

* Bug fixes: dynamic_demo_wx, figure legends, memory leaks, axis

scaling bug related to singleton plots, mathtext bug for '6', some

numarray bug workarounds

See http://matplotlib.sf.net/CHANGELOG for details
