We are happy to release Matplotlib v2.2.0rc1!
This is a feature release which includes new functionality (along with many
bug-fixes). One of the hi-lights of this release is a constrained layout
manager, please see https://matplotlib.org/devdocs/users/whats_new.html for
API changes are at https://matplotlib.org/devdocs/api/api_changes.html
The rc can be installed via pip
pip install --pre matplotlib
or via conda from conda-forge
conda install -c conda-forge/label/rc matplotlib -c conda-forge
The goal is to do 2.2.0 final around Mar. 2, please test these out and
report bugs this week and next!
mpl2.2 will be the last feature release in the Matplotlib 2.x series and
the last feature release of Matplotlib to support python 2.7 and intend to
provide bug fixes to 2.2 until 2020. We are looking for someone to take
the lead on maintaining the 2.2.x branch, if you are interested please
The next feature release after 2.2 will be 3.0 scheduled for July-August
Thank you everyone (100+) who contributed to this release!
