[REL] Matplotlib 3.0.0

Folks,

Happy to announce Matplotlib 3.0.0!

This is the first version of Matplotlib to only support Python 3.

If you need Python 2.7 support the 2.2.x LTS series will continue to
receive critical bug-fixes until 2020.

Highlights of this release include:

- GUI backend is selected at run-time based on what toolkits are
   installed. A GUI toolkit will not be selected on a headless
   server.
- New cyclic color map *twilight*
- Improvements to automatic layout of titles, ticks, and GridSpec
- Many bug fixes!

For the full details see https://matplotlib.org/users/whats_new.html and
https://matplotlib.org/api/api_changes.html for whats new and API changes
respectively.

For packagers: Matplotlib no longer depends on six or pytz.

A big thank you to everyone who worked on this release in terms of commits
(~130 people have commits), reporting issues, and review.

I expect there to be a v3.0.1 release in the next month or so.

Tom

Folks,

A small update, when I uploaded the wheels yesterday I only uploaded about
half of them [1] and did not check my work carefully enough. This has been
rectified, sorry to everyone who had installs fail his morning.

Tom

[1] I downoladed one of the wheels from http://wheels.scipy.org/ twice, the
browser helpfully added (1) to the name, when I when to upload everything
twine got half way through and failed out on that file. I thought it had
done everything else, but it had actually only done everything up to that
file.
