We are pleased to announce the release of 3.6.2.

This is the second bug fix release of the 3.6.x series. Pre-built wheels are available for most major platforms, and can be installed using `pip install matplotlib==3.6.2`. Other packages may also be available already; please check with your preferred source.

We thank the 22 authors for the 86 pull requests that comprise the 3.6.2 release.

This release contains several bug-fixes and adjustments:

* Avoid mutating dictionaries passed to subplots
