what are the new features of nbagg?

Interesting, I was going off what the IPython devs said here https://github.com/ipython/ipython/issues/7774

Did you mean 2.2? It works on 2.3.

For 3.0

%matplotlib notebook

will also work.

In a recent IPython, try starting up a notebook and using
%matplotlib nbagg
You will find that the embedded plot is fully interactive, complete with
a cursor readout and navigation buttons.  I think that's the new part.

That was just adding the "notebook" alias to the `%matplotlib` magic. The
actual underlying functionality has been around for a while longer.
