The tarballs for the v1.1.1 release candidate 1 (rc1) are uploaded to and
are available for testing and building binaries

https://sourceforge.net/projects/matplotlib/files/matplotlib/matplotlib-1.1.1/

I have uploaded the Mac builds (no Python 2.6 yet; do we really need
that?). They pass all unit tests and the 32-bit version seems to work
well with my software.

The included pytz is outdated (and I did not bother to uprev it in the
binaries I uploaded); would somebody be willing to update that before we
cut the final releases, or is that considered too risky at this late
date?

It feels too risky to me post-rc. How critical do you think the updates are? We are planning on moving our attention to a master release 1.2.x as soon as this is out, and we can update ahead of that. And for people who need the latest, they can always install their own.

Might be nice to upload some python2.6 builds for the actual release, but I don’t see this as necessary for the testers since there are no important differences between 2.6 and 2.7 as far as v1.1.x is concerned.
