Dear Trevor,

I am using 1.0.1 and the TkAgg backend with no problems.  I'm not sure why you can't find the documentation.  It is listed in the faq as a viable backend.

Subject: [Matplotlib-users] Matplotlib 1.0.1 Tk backend

In preparing to upgrade from 0.99 to 1.0.1, I was reading the online documentation about the various backends.  I do not see a TkAgg backend listed.  Is that because there is no longer a backend for Tk?  Has support for Tk been dropped in 1.0.1?  Or has it not yet been added to the documentation?
