matplotlib 1.2.0rc2 is available

matplotlib 1.2.0rc2 is available!

be downloaded here:

OS-X, but we hope to have them available soon.)

Documentation for the new release is available here:


(The main site will continue to host the

documentation for 1.1.1 until the final 1.2.0 release).

(Either here or on the github issue tracker).
