Standard Release Boilerplate:
PLplot Release 5.6.1
This release corrects a number of outstanding issues with PLplot that
discovered subsequent to the 5.6.0 release. It represents the ongoing
of the community to improve the PLplot plotting package. Development
in the 5.7.x series will be available every few months. The next full
will be 5.8.0.
PLplot releases may be found at
Detailed release notes are given in the README.release file included
with the tarball, and at
PLplot's Home Page is http://plplot.sourceforge.net/ .
We (or more specifically I) have been having some trouble updating
the documentation and demos on the web page, so these do not yet
accurately reflect the current state of the project.
Thanks to all who tested 5.6.1 Release Candidate 1.
