This is starting to bite enough people that we should consider rolling
out a release. We had hope to get the 3d stuff working before the
next release, but having a version up there that doesn't work with the
latest numpy is a more pressing problem to me. Does this seem like a
good idea to you Charlie? Are there other features or fixes that
other developers would like to get in first?
I agree that it is time for a new release.
The changes I have been making involving not rendering things with alpha == 0 or linewidth == 0 are certainly not complete, but I don't think this is a showstopper. Anything using agg should be OK, postscript is OK, svg is OK with linewidth == 0, which I think is what matters most immediately--some things rely on this. Help from other developers will be needed for other backends.
A new quiver could come before or after a release. I have not committed anything yet. I would like to be able to start doing so fairly soon, but in a way that does not cause trouble with a release. (At present, I am calling the new version quiver2 so that I can work with the pylab interface without clobbering the original version. The API will differ from that of the original, so maybe both should be present, with different names, for a while.) It would help to know when the actual production of the release is likely to occur, of course.
