plplot-5.0.1 released!

This is a bug fix release of a mature package which should be suitable for most 2D and 3D scientific plotting needs. This latest version has been extensively tested on Debian potato. The cdemos, cxxdemos (c++), fdemos (fortran), tcldemos, tkdemos, and the new standalone xw??.py python demos all now work well on potato. Similar tests show good results on RedHat 6.2 except for Tcl/Tk whose 8.0 version on RH 6.2 is too old for us to support. We have not yet upgraded our test box to RedHat 7.0, and until we do, we would appreciate any RedHat 7.0 reports our users could give us. We have also been able to configure, build, and install the software on a solaris system, but so far only minimalist testing has been done on that system.

Please send bug reports, comments, and questions to the plplot mailing list.
