matplotlib priorities

Perry Greenfield has spent a fair amount of time talking with me and
the folks working at stsci on matplotlib to come up with a set of
goals and priorities for near term development, and has thoroughly
revamped the goals page

  http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/goals.html

We hope that this page will stay much more current than the last page,
which grew fairly static as most of the goals at the time the page was
created were fulfilled.

Take a look over the list and speak up for anything we may have
overlooked.

Just so it doesn't slip through the cracks, please add support for
multi-line text (embedded '\n's) especially in ticklabels to the near
term goals.

Thanks.

There are something I did't see in the list (but perhaps it's possible to do now) and that I think will be useful for astronomer. it's to plot an image with axes in astronomical unit (RA and Dec)

like this function in pgplot:

thanks for this software who are very good,

A few feature requests :slight_smile:

1. Solve the problem where the lines are not displayed correctly when
   the axis limits after zooming are much smaller than the axis limits
   when the plot is first created. This has something to do with the
   backends not being able to handle negative coordinates.

2. Enable zooming in both X and Y with the mouse by allowing the user to
   choose a rectangle. This might behave like the matlab "zoom" function
   taking arguments like
        zoom xon
        zoom yon
        zoom
    I did a simple implementation of this for the GTK backend, but
    a more general implementation could be done easily depending on the
    already planned "Cursor read function" enhancement.
