matplotlib 0.99.1rc1 available for testing

We are preparing a bugfix release of the 0.99 branch, and a release
candidate 0.99.1rc1 is available for testing.

  http://drop.io/xortel1#

Please post any problems you find on the bug tracker

  http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?group_id=80706&atid=560720

and any patches on the patches tracker.

  http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?group_id=80706&atid=560722

It will help if you also ping the mailing list since not all the
developers check the tracker as regularly as the lists.

The bugfixes from the svn commit log since 0.99.0 are included below:

Hey Werner, thanks for the reports.

This is not expected to be fixed until matplotlib 1.0. The changes

where the emphasis is on stability.

You are welcome - anyhow I think it would be more appropriate for me to thank you and everyone else involved in the mpl developement. Thanks really a great job and it keeps getting even better!

Maybe instead of using "import wxversion" (I think its intent is for developers having multiple versions installed) you might wnat to change the code in backend_wx.py to use one of the following:
import wx
>>> wx.__version__
'2.8.10.1'
>>> wx.version
<function version at 0x02BAEC30>
>>> wx.version()
'2.8.10.1 (msw-unicode)'
>>> wx.VERSION
(2, 8, 10, 1, '')
>>> wx.VERSION_STRING
'2.8.10.1'

This way you don't use wxversion and the check will run in all situations.

Best regards
Werner

I don't understand. You are correct that wxversion is used so that if multiple versions are installed, one that will work is the one that gets imported. This seems to be important functionality; it was added because people were having problems, and it seems to have solved those problems. It sounds like you are advocating going back to a simple version check.

Instead, it looks to me like the best solution is the one you provided at the very bottom of http://www.py2exe.org/index.cgi/MatPlotLib.

Unless I misread the code it just wants to ensure that at least version
2.8 is used, this could be done using any of the above variables. Only
things wxversion is doing in addition is to propose to download and for
a developer if he is having a default of < 2.8 it will load 2.8 or
higher if available.

I am happy with what ever change is done as long as it also works for
py2exe'd application.

I have applied this fix to the branch and the trunk, so wxversion will not be imported by py2exe'ed programs.
