v1.1.1rc2 tarballs are up

In article <EF3F693B-B19F-4CF2-9416-F073203B3A26@...748...>,

I just uploaded the Mac binaries.

Several minor concerns:
- Many unit tests failed on Mac OS X 10.4 (which is where I build the 10.3.9
version) due to "too many files open", but the same binary looks fine on
10.5.
- The 64-bit version (10.6 and later) had one unexpected failure on 10.7 (I
have not yet had time to test it on 10.6)...

When I tested on Mac OS X 10.6 I found that most unit tests were somehow
missing. Rather than try to diagnose the problem, I built a new binary
on 10.6, confirmed that it installed properly (with all unit tests) on
10.6 and 10.7, then uploaded it to replace the earlier 10.6 binary.

The same test I mentioned in my previous post still fails using the new
binary, on both 10.6 and 10.7.

Almost all of the test failures you ported were ‘K’ ie KNOWNFAIL. Usually when you get a bunch of knownfails, it is because you don’t have a prereq installed, eg inkscape for converting SVG.

Are you sure you have the requirements on all of the platforms

When I say “somehow missing” I’m not referring to the K (known fail). I’m referring to exceptions and tracebacks caused by trying to import test_X for various value of X: the modules were actually missing. I’ve never seen that before, so I was quite shocked. Normally I build on the oldest version of Mac OS X I can for the desired binary, but in this case I wanted to see what would happen if I built on 10.7 for a binary that works on 10.6 and 10.7. It resulted in this odd situation: the binary installed everything correctly on 10.7 but somehow failed to install some sub-packages on 10.6. Unfortunately I don’t have time to look into it right now; I just took the simple way out of building again on 10.6. Unfortunately that meant a binary with known issues was up for a few hours. I do have the defective binary installer if anyone wants a look at it.

By the way: I installed ghostscript from source and Inkscape application from binary. More tests pass, but many still show K. My guess is that matplotlib can see ghostscript but not the Inkscape application (no surprise). Inkscape has too many dependencies for me to want to try to build it from source.

That leaves one unexpected failure with matplotlib 1.1.1 with the 64-bit 10.6-and-later binary and no failures with the 32-bit 10.3.9-and-later binary.

That one Stix failure is nothing to worry about; it seems there has been some subtle Stix change such that a baseline image that works on one machine fails on another.
