Sourceforge download page shows basemap as default download on windows

Hi All,

I was downloading matplotlib on a windows machine and the sourceforge site (http://sourceforge.net/projects/matplotlib/) showed me basemap as the default download (instead of the latest matplotlib). On Mac the default download shows correctly as matplotlib.

This is some autodetection from sourceforge, so I don't know if it is a sitewide problem, or it can be configured from the project page. Just to let the admins know.

I downloaded it also yesterday thinking I was getting a newer (than 0.98.5.3)
version of matplotlib. Definitely misleading, so thanks for posting this
thread.

It looks like SourceForge has been making some pretty major changes to the file download system. That part of SourceForge was always the most confusing and frustrating part of the system. I just went in and re-specified the default files, and it appears to be working now. Please report your experiences on Windows and Mac, since I did not test those platforms.
