    A new release of matplotlib is posted to the sourceforge download
    site.
    You can read the release notes with links at
    http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/whats_new.html

    Download: Downloads: http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=80706
    Homepage: http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net
    Screenshots: http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/screenshots.html


    What's new:

    enhanced mathtext - Complete revamp of matplotlib's internal math
    layout and rendering engine. Michael Droetboom has improved the TeX
    parser to significantly expand it's coverege, and implemeted Knuth's
    box layout algorithms. Additionally, the much anticipated STIX fonts
    for math expressions have come online and ship with matplotlib. See a
    sample of the new mathtext at
    http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/screenshots.html#mathtext_examples

    better configuration - Darren Dale has provided support for a site.cfg
    configuration file to enable users and package maintainers to have
    better control over the matplotlib build process. He has also provided
    a (currently optional) enthought.traits enabled property configuration
    to replace matplotlib's rc configuration using a maplotlib.conf file

    writing to file-like objects - You can now pass file like objects (eg
    StringIO) to all backends for hardcopy. This has been a much requested
    feature for usage in web application servers.

    record array support - New functions for loading, displaying and
    saving numpy record arrays in matplotlib.mlab. See for example,
    http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/examples/loadrec.py

    pyplot - Added a module matplotlib.pyplot which has all of pylab's
    plotting functions (eg figure, plot, show, close) but does not import
    the numpy namepace. This is useful for those who want to use the pylab
    functionality w/o the namespace clutter.

    maskedarray - Added optional support for the scipy sandbox masked
    array packaged. Configurable with an rc setting.

    plotfile - Added new pylab/pyplot command plotfile for gnuplot style
    file plotting

    And lots more....
