John was asking whether there was something left to be fixed befor 0.88.
In 0.87.3, there is still a bug left that has been reported several times I think.
In interactive mode on TkAgg, after solving by clicking on the ‘save’ button in toolbar2,
mpl loses its knowledge of the figure. Any plotting statement given after that
creates a new figure, rather than add to the existing one. I wish I knew how to fix this.
I am (still, but not much longer) running Python 2.3, but I think Fernando reported
the bug in Python 2.4 as well.
