Hello,
Congratulations for this new minor release !

Someone mentionned on python-list that it’s not available on pypi. I checked, and indeed it isn’t.

Should we upload it there?

Thanks,

N

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.

Sorry about that. I just addressed that this morning.
