Thanks!

Hi!

I would like to thank the matplotlib team for the new release. I haven't had the courage to deploy it on my main number crunching computer it but I have it on my regular computer and it's been fine.

I'm especially excited to see renewed work on the 3D plotting.

I have a quick question: what kind of improvements should I expect to see with the macos backend? I ran the 3D example with and without the backend, and things seemed qualitatively similar.

Originally, the Mac OS X backend was much faster than the other backends because of how the event loop was organized. Currently, most (I'm not sure about the wx backends) backends use the event loop in the same way as the Mac OS X backend, and are about equally fast (provided that you are using one of the Agg-based backends). There may be some minor difference in drawing quality. There may also be some difference in robustness compared to a more generic backend (not due to the backend itself, but the underlying GUI code). Last but not least, the Mac OS X backend does not need an external GUI library (like wx or pygtk); only Python itself and NumPy are needed.
