v0.98 comments

Hi,

I'm not a regular 0.98 user right now (using debian stable 0.91 or
similar in a python app) but was investigating the new documentation at
http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/doc/html/index.html and noticed a few
things (typos?) which I wanted to check. It does look good - ReST?

- in artists.html, an 'ax' variable is first created, then after
"Continuing with our example:" the plot command is run on 'ax1' (bug/typo?)
- just after this, there is "it creates a Line2D instance and adds it
the the Axes.lines list." (typo? 'to the'?)

Lastly, has anyone checked whether 0.98 still has the 'down key' bug for
key-press events? (is there a bugzilla/tracker?)

Thanks,

Hi Neil,

Yes, we are in the process of converting old and adding new documentation. We
are using ReST and Sphinx.

- in artists.html, an 'ax' variable is first created, then after
"Continuing with our example:" the plot command is run on 'ax1' (bug/typo?)
- just after this, there is "it creates a Line2D instance and adds it

ok, thanks.

I'm not familiar with this issue.

I've not used 0.98, and I just noticed that debian etch actually has 0.87.7, so I'm 'only' using the latter, nothing more recent...

The bug was mentioned in 2005 according to this archived message:
http://osdir.com/ml/python.matplotlib.general/2005-04/msg00118.html

Triggering 'down' key events do not work correctly - I guess only in the gtkagg backend. I have reproduced this here.
