At your convenience, can the Fink package for matplotlib be updated to reflect the most recent version(matplotlib-1.0.1)?
The current Fink package for matplotlib listed in the package database is matplotlib-1.0.0, however there is a new version available. Updating to the new version is greatly needed as the pylab frontend is broken on x86_64 for matplotlib-1.0.0 (behavior noted in the package info file and observed in my installation). According to the release notes for matplotlib-1.0.1, a comment by "mdehoon" indicates that this bug has been fixed and that pylab for matplotlib-1.0.1 works under x86_64 on Macs.
The up-to-date version of matplotlib can be found at: https://sourceforge.net/projects/matplotlib/files/matplotlib/matplotlib-1.0.1/
I attempted to contact the package maintainer through SF but have not received a response.
