Release Name: matplotlib-0.62.4
**Notes:** What's new in matplotlib-0.62 - You can read this in html with hyperlinks at http://matplotlib.sf.net/whats.new.html. * interactive support in ipython http://ipython.scipy.org 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 - http://matplotlib.sf.net/screenshots.html#log_shot 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 Downloads at http://sourceforge.net/projects/matplotlib <details class='elided'> <summary title='Show trimmed content'>···</summary> --- **Changes:** 2004-08-30 matplotlib 0.62.4 released 2004-08-30 Fixed a multiple images with different extent bug, Fixed markerfacecolor as RGB tuple 2004-08-27 Mathtext now more than 5x faster.
