Plan for cutting v1.1.0?

Just wondering if there is any sort of agreement/target for cutting a v1.1.0 release? I think we are very close. Most of what I see that needs to be done are documentation-related (and I want to add a can_pan() function to mirror the can_zoom() function).

Most documentation work that seems to remain are Animation module (and I would love to find out if there is some way to embed a video using sphinx) and the release-related documentation such as “what’s new”. Also, do we plan to now host the documentation and downloads on github, or are we still sticking with sourceforge for that?

This looks to be a very nice release!

v1.1.0 release? I think we are very close. Most of what I see that

I think the last chunk of discussion is here:

http://www.mail-archive.com/matplotlib-devel@lists.sourceforge.net/msg08276.html

As I recall, John had time to help in June, but less after that. I don't think we ever reached an agreement as to schedule. It simply went into slide mode.

Most documentation work that seems to remain are Animation module (and I
would love to find out if there is some way to embed a video using
sphinx) and the release-related documentation such as "what's new".

or are we still sticking with sourceforge for that?

ipython has moved to github for their homepage and documentation, but as far as I can see, github has no facility for hosting downloads; the ipython tarballs are on scipy.org.

This looks to be a very nice release!

Question: simply abandon v1.0.x-maint without a release?

I am back from my vacation so I have time again. I figured since I
was leaving and people were making fantastic progress on pull requests
and tickets that it was best to wait. But I'm available now to help
with the release.

No strong opinions here. It probably makes sense to move as much
stuff to github as possible now that the issue tracker has been moved,
but the sf download stuff is pretty good now and I haven't
investigated whether github offers equivalents. Also, our donations
are processed through sf and they are non-negligible. I found this
old post on github about accepting donations
https://github.com/blog/57-getting-paid-the-open-source-way; not sure
if this is still current.

This looks to be a very nice release!

I would say yes here -- we can leave the branch around for a while in
case there is a reason to cut a release from it, but I don't think it
makes sense to do a release of the branch otherwise.

They are on scipy, github, and PyPI. Here are the ones for
matplotlib:

this makes sense to me. let's just make sure there's nothing
there that never made it into trunk, but should have.

best,

I don't know how I missed the "Downloads" button on the RHS of https://github.com/matplotlib/matplotlib. It looks like we would need a much larger space allocation to include all the binary distributions.

Fine with me, also.

Just following up on this statement I have made. I did find an extension module (MIT-licensed) that would allow one to embed YouTube video links in the sphinx docs. Maybe we might want to create a matplotlib account on youtube and make various animations available through that?

That is pretty straight-forward and easy to use. My main concern
though will be that YouTube demo videos have to be considered as
static resources and not created on the fly. This has to be the case
because we would need the YouTube URL for the link. Might not be
terrible.

On a related note, I was reading through the docs for la (labeled
arrays) when I noticed that the docs had functions organized. I
haven't looked at the source code yet, but I wonder if it was done
with some sort of sphinx magic that we could use?
