2007 Feb 26: Pyxplot 0.6.3
Second Pyxplot beta-release. The most significant change is the introduction of a new command-line parser, with greatly improved handling of complex expressions and much more meaningful syntax error messages. Multi-platform compatibility has also been massively improved, and dependencies loosened. A small number of new commands have been added; most notable among them are the jpeg and eps commands, which embed images in multiplots.
Details – New and Extended Commands:
set xtics and set mxtics
text and set label commands extended to allow text rotation.
set log command extended to allow the use of logarithms with bases other than 10.
set term enlarge | noenlarge
set term pdf
set term x11_persist
Details – Eased System Requirements:
Requirement on Python 2.4 minimum eased to version 2.3 minimum.
Requirements on scipy and readline eased; Pyxplot will now work in reduced form when they are absent, though they are still strongly recommended.
dvips and Ghostscript are no longer required.
Details – Removed Commands:
Due to a general refinement of Pyxplot’s API, some of the less sensible pieces of syntax from Version 0.5 are no longer supported. The author apologises for any inconvenience caused.
The delete_arrow, delete_text, move_text, undelete_arrow and undelete_text commands have been removed from the Pyxplot API. The move, delete and undelete commands should now be used to act upon all types of multiplot objects.
The set terminal command no longer accepts the enhanced and noenhanced modifiers. The postscript and eps terminals should be used instead.
The select modifier, used after the plot, replot, fit and spline command can now only be used once; to specify multiple select criteria, use the and logical operator.
