On the users list, I recently discussed renaming the matlab namespace
to pylab out of trademark concerns
This change is now in CVS. For the next few releases, importing
matplotlib.matlab will work but issue a deprecation warning. I also
added pylab.py to site-packages, and the suggested way of importing
the pylab namespace is
from pylab import blah, blah
which is a wrapper around
from matplotlib.pylab import blah, blah
There is a script at http://matplotlib.sf.net/matplotlib_to_pylab.py
to recursively convert names files and directories to the new naming
convention. Read the header to see which cases it handles and which
it does not.
Please update your repositories and test the new changes and
conversion script, which will go into the 0.65 release.
