ANN: matplotlib-0.62.4

Release Name: matplotlib-0.62.4

What's new in matplotlib-0.62 - You can read this in html with hyperlinks at
* interactive support in ipython with
ipython -pylab, which detects your backend and loads the
appropriate interactive, threaded shell, as well as all of
matplotlib.matlab and numerix. Requires ipython-0.6.3. Backend
status summary: linux (all backends working), OSX (tkagg and gtk*
work), win32 (tkagg only). Thanks Fernando Perez!
* Excellent improvements in log ticking and formatting. You can now
do log plots in any base with major and minor tick support. You
can easily customize the location of the minor ticks with the subs
arguments. Mathtext exponential labeling for log plots. Thanks
Darren Dale and Gregory Lielens. See the new screenshot and
example - and
help for the semilogx, semilogy and loglog.
# base 16 semilog x plot with minor ticks on the 2s, 4s and 8s
semilogx(x,y, basex=16, subsx=[2,4,8])
* Mathtext now more than 5x faster. Thanks to Paul Mcguire for
optimizations in both pyparsing and the matplotlib grammar!
Warning, mathtext broken on python2.2. We hope to fix this soon.
* fltkagg backend - alpha. Gregory Lielens submitted an fltkagg
backend which requires CVS pyfltk. Feedback please!
* Bug fixes: fixed some image edge effects, a ttf read problem in
backend_ps on win32, several errorbar problems, a HOME dir bug on
win32, grid w/o args now toggle grid state, multiple imshows with
different extents, markerface color as RGB tulple
