Release planning/milestones

To overhauling all of the default colors, I think that is still in the cards, but some one who is not me needs to drive that.

The goal of pulling pyplot out of backend_bases is exactly that, to be able to do everything using the OO interface in a convenient way.

Hey all,

To start with, the 2.0 release is pending a choice of new default color map. I think that when we pick that we should cut 2.0 off of the last release and then the next minor release turns into 2.1. If we want to do other breaking changes we will just do a 3.0 when that happens. It makes sense to me to bundle default color changes as one set of breaking changes and code API changes as another.

I thought there was going to be a complete overhaul of the default theme? Has that idea been abandoned?

  • making OO interface easier to use interactively (if interactive, auto-redraw at sensible time)

  • pull the pyplot state machine out of backend_bases and expose the figure_manager classes

Do either of these mean that it will be possible to use the OO interface without needing to go through pyplot?

The above PR is an illustration of one approach to making the OO interface draw like the pyplot interface does in interactive mode. There may be a better way to do it, but this way is quite simple and non-intrusive.
