Fedora 8 Update: plplot-5.8.0-1.fc8



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2007-3491
2007-12-03 11:40:26
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : plplot
Product     : Fedora 8
Version     : 5.8.0
Release     : 1.fc8
URL         : http://plplot.sourceforge.net/
Summary     : Library of functions for making scientific plots
Description :
PLplot is a library of functions that are useful for making scientific
plots.

PLplot can be used from within compiled languages such as C, C++,
FORTRAN and Java, and interactively from interpreted languages such as
Octave, Python, Perl and Tcl.

The PLplot library can be used to create standard x-y plots, semilog
plots, log-log plots, contour plots, 3D surface plots, mesh plots, bar
charts and pie charts. Multiple graphs (of the same or different sizes)
may be placed on a single page with multiple lines in each graph.

A variety of output file devices such as Postscript, png, jpeg, LaTeX
and others, as well as interactive devices such as xwin, tk, xterm and
Tektronics devices are supported. New devices can be easily added by
writing a small number of device dependent routines.

There are almost 2000 characters in the extended character set. This
includes four different fonts, the Greek alphabet and a host of
mathematical, musical, and other symbols. Some devices supports its own
way of dealing with text, such as the Postscript and LaTeX drivers, or
the png and jpeg drivers that uses the Freetype library.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

Update to plplot 5.8.0 "Stable" release.  Changes from previous 5.7.4 are:

- cairo devices
     The xwinttf driver has been renamed xcairo. In addition most of the other devices that are theoretically possible with Cairo have been implemented. These are a PostScript device (pscairo), a PNG device (pngcairo), a PDF device (pdfcairo), an SVG device (svgcairo), and a memory device (memcairo). The cairo device driver is still considered experimental as a whole. Known issues include improper text rendering with svgcairo and memcairo not working at all so those two devices are disabled by default.  The pngcairo, pscairo, and xcairo devices appear to work without problems and also give outstanding-looking antialiased and hinted results so are enabled by default. The pdfcairo device appears to work reasonably well so is enabled by default although it is not as mature as the other Cairo devices that are enabled.

- plmeta/plrender
     The combination of the plmeta device and the plrender application that renders plmeta results is unmaintained and has some known issues with strings, aspect ratio changes, and fonts.  Therefore, the plmeta device is no longer shipped.  Furthermore, plrender is not shipped as well.

- plmtex3/plptex3
    These two functions, which were added in release 5.7.3, had a number of bugs. These have hopefully been cleaned up. Example 28 demonstrates how to use these functions. The functions and the example have now been implemented for most language bindings.
