Installing matplotlib for Python 2.6 on windows

What is the recommended way to install matplotlib for python
2.6?

I have numpy installed currently on my python 2.6 distribution. Is there
an existing binary installer for matplotlib? Is the best thing to do to
try and compile from the current .98.5 source?

Thanks for any help or advice, it is much appreciated.

As I mentioned in a previous email last night, I have built an
installer for matplotlib (updated this afternoon) off the SVN trunk.
You are welcome to use it, however be aware that maplotlib does not
support Python 2.6 (and won't until after Numpy officially supports
Python 2.6) and there are some known issues - one of which is that I
can't get Tkinter to work properly when using plot.show(). As a work
around I strongly suggest installing WxPython and using that as the
default backend. If you do chose to use this installer please know
that it is unsupported and you are on your own if something breaks.
