We are happy to announce matplotlib v2.0.0rc1 !

This is the first release candidate for the long delayed v2.0 release. For the full details of
what is new please see http://matplotlib.org/2.0.0rc1/users/whats_new.html . Some of the highlights:

- new default styles ( http://matplotlib.org/2.0.0rc1/users/dflt_style_changes.html )
- default font include most western alphabets
- performance improvements in text and image rendering
- vastly improved log scale ticks
- many bug fixes and documentation improvements

Please help us by testing the release candidate. To make this easy we
have provided both wheels and conda packages for mac, linux and
windows. You can install pre-releases via pip:

pip install --pre matplotlib

or via conda:

conda install -c conda-forge/label/rc -c conda-forge matplotlib

For more details see http://matplotlib.org/style_changes.html . [1]

Report any issues to https://github.com/matplotlib/matplotlib/issues
or matplotlib-users@python.org .

The target for v2.0 final is around late Dec 2016/early Jan 2017. We
anticipate there being at least 1 more release candidate.

This is the work of over 200 individual code contributors and many
more who took part in the discussions, tested the beta releases, and
reported bug reports. Thank you to everyone who contributed!

Check out the latest tomviz release, featuring accelerated contouring and a number of other improvements. This is our final release before moving to Qt 5, and exposing deeper integration with ITK for segmentation.

I currently hold a similar job at NSLS-II at Brookhaven National Lab and will likely collaborate with these positions.

There is a lot of cool (open) work going on in the x-ray community right now!

Matplotlib v1.5.1 has been released.

This is a bug fix release.

Currently available via pip, other channels should be coming soon.
