If you look at
you can see that the tarball downloads are going well since 5.9.10 was
released 15 days ago. The average download rate is ~25 per day, and
the number of different countries where people have downloaded
PLplot-5.9.10 now stands at 53. I attribute that very large variety
of cultures that use PLplot to our excellent unicode support, and a
tip of the hat to Andrew Roach who was the one who first started
implementing our unicode support back in 2004.
With regard to future release plans, this current release cycle should
be relatively short (a few months) leading up to 5.9.11, the last
development release in the 5.9.x series. And 5.9.11 should be
followed by a very quick release cycle (one month) limited to just
testing, bug fixing, and documentation improvements leading up to our
next stable release, 5.10.0.
So if you would like to get any code changes other than bug fixes into
the next stable release, the time to develop those changes is right now.
