    Veusz is a scientific plotting package written in Python (currently
    100% Python). It uses PyQt for display and user-interfaces, and
    numarray for handling the numeric data. Veusz is designed to produce
    publication-ready Postscript output.

    Veusz provides a GUI, command line and scripting interface (based on
    Python) to its plotting facilities. The plots are built using an
    object-based system to provide a consistent interface.

    Changes from 0.6:
    Please refer to ChangeLog for all the changes.
    Highlights include:
    * 2D image support
    * FITS file data import (1D + 2D) with PyFITS module
    * Support for line separated blocks of data when importing
    * Reversed axes supported
    * Key length option
    * Linked dataset reload UI
    * Plot functions over specific range
    * Several UI improvements

    Features of package:
    * X-Y plots (with errorbars)
    * Images (with colour mappings)
    * Stepped plots (for histograms)
    * Line plots
    * Function plots
    * Fitting functions to data
    * Stacked plots and arrays of plots
    * Plot keys
    * Plot labels
    * LaTeX-like formatting for text
    * EPS output
    * Simple data importing
    * Scripting interface
    * Save/Load plots
    * Dataset manipulation
    * Embed Veusz within other programs

    To be done:
    * Contour plots
    * UI improvements
    * Import filters (for qdp and other plotting packages, fits, csv)

    Requirements:
    Python (probably 2.3 or greater required)
