PLplot-5.11.0 has been released

PLplot-5.11.0 is the latest release of PLplot. This cross-platform software package is suitable for creating scientific plots whose (UTF-8) plot symbols and text (in virtually all human languages and scripts) are limited in practice only by what Unicode-aware system fonts are installed on a user's computer. The PLplot software, which is primarily licensed under the LGPL, has a clean architecture that is organized as a core C library, separate computer language bindings for that library, and separate device drivers that are dynamically loaded by the core library which control how the plots are presented in noninteractive and interactive plotting contexts.

This release of PLplot-5.11.0 represents the ongoing efforts of the PLplot community to improve this software, and we encourage all users to upgrade to this version since this is the only version we support. We expect to make several of these releases a year, and the planned next release should have a version number of 5.12.0.

PLplot releases may be found at Release notes (which summarizes the backwards incompatibilities and new features introduced by this release) and a detailed ChangeLog are given in the README.release and ChangeLog.release files included with the release tarball. (The README.release file available separately at for each release is a concatanation of those two files.) PLplot feedback and contributions can be submitted to the mailing lists provided at
