API_CHANGES & MIGRATION.txt

Dear matplotlib users,

I'l looking for the files

http://matplotlib.sf.net/API_CHANGES
http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/MIGRATION.txt

that seem to have disappear from the new sf website.

Many thanks !

Benjamin

Thanks -- I've re-added these and put links to them in the "need help"
sidebar at http://matplotlib.sf.net. You may need to refresh your
browser to see the new links. We should include these in the rest
docs proper, so they are exposed to the sphinx search tool, but I just
went with the quick and easy for now.

Hello,

Thanks for updating the files API_CHANGES & MIGRATION.txt, I have now read them and fear that a problem I have is due to calling:

    f = figure()
    h = f.bbox.height()

Which should change to:

    f = figure()
    h = f.bbox.height

Is the expectation that I should write something like this instead:

    if f.bbox.height.hasattr("__call__"):
        h = f.bbox.height()
    else:
        h = f.bbox.height

It lacks something aesthetically. How are people handling this? Do you insist on users having a pre- or post- 0.98 version? Have I missed a trick? Perhaps some kind of monkeypatch that can be applied so that old versions would appear to look like the new versions?

Thanks,

Jon

I'll go ahead and convert these.

Cheers,
Mike

I have converted API_CHANGES to "reST-light", meaning most of the older notes are just literal text blocks.

MIGRATION.txt is mostly out of date (particularly the part about 0.98.x being "bleeding edge"). The meat of its information (migrating from 0.91 to 0.98) is actually just a reference to API_CHANGES. The other useful bits of information---how to check out from a branch and use svnmerge.py---are already duplicated in the developer documentation. I'd suggest just removing the file. Any objections?

The links in the sidebar will need to be updated/removed. I don't see the new sidebar in SVN. Did you just make the changes locally, John?

Cheers,
Mike

None from me.

Yep, forgot to commit them. They should be in now.
