unless I'm misunderstanding something, the website says that
should contain the axes3d material. It doesn't. Instead, it axes3d.py
contains the following:
raise NotImplementedError('axes3d is not supported in matplotlib-0.98.
You may want to try the 0.91.x maintenance branch')
note that I am on a Windows machine and I'm not sure I can build
everything from the trunk.
thanks in advance.
