Last call for 1.2.0

The milestone is clear. Is there anything we're missing?

If not, I plan to cut a final release and update the documentation website tomorrow morning.

Mike

I just noticed a small documentation issue yesterday. This table does not include the
gtk3 backend http://matplotlib.org/1.2.0/faq/usage_faq.html#what-is-a-backend

Should we update the table to include the gtk3 backend? (and note that the qt3 backend is depreciated)

I just submitted #1462 against v1.2.x, (which is also pending as #1458
against master).

"use plt.subplots() in examples as much as possible"

replaces a whole bunch of example code like this:

    fig = plt.figure()
    ax = plt.subplot(111) # or plt.add_subplot(111)

to be just this:

    fig, ax = plt.subplots()

This is a docs-only update - but I think it'll be worthwhile to start
to give a more sensible way of creating figures and axes in one call
for our the folks who'll be looking at matplotlib with fresh eyes
after the 1.2 release.

But I totally understand if folks feel this is too big of a pill to
swallow this late in the game.

go, team, go!

Just closed the PR which proposes this change against master (in favour of the one against v1.2.x).

It is very late in the day to be making so many example changes (especially as we don’t have tests for them).
Personally, the balance between the risks vs the benefits doesn’t give me much indication of which way to go (I guess that is partly because I don’t actually prefer the plt.subplots() interface in some situations). I guess that is a debate for inside the PR (https://github.com/matplotlib/matplotlib/pull/1462).

Cheers,

While I think Paul's contribution in #1462 is great, I'd prefer to not put this in 1.2.0. There just isn't enough time to review such a large patch this late in the game. As our experience with Nelle's valuable PEP8 work shows, it's still possible to slip in accidental breakage even when making mostly mechanical changes. I'm fine with it going on the 1.2.x branch after the release, however, so it would be in 1.2.1 (if we do one), so there's no need to change the PR target etc. at this point -- I'll just add a note that we don't want it to be merged until after 1.2.0 has been tagged.
