yPlot-1.1.2 has been released!

yPlot-1.1.2 has been released! This is a GPLed Yorick interface to
PLplot-5.2.1 was originally developed by Conrad Steenberg. With some help
from Conrad, I continue to maintain yplot because it is one of the easier
interfaces for PLplot users to learn. (When I first encountered yPlot in
the mid-90's it took me only an hour or so to start doing the complicated
research plots I required following Conrad Steenberg's nice yPlot tutorial.)
yPlot continues to be independent of PLplot but is closely tied to recent
PLplot developments. To obtain yPlot-1.1.2 see the yPlot SF file release
area at http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=15416 . The
md5sum is 406694001b5cec1a273bc6435818af42 for yplot-1.1.2.tar.gz. This
version of yPlot is based on PLplot-5.2.1, which is a large step forward
compared to the PLplot version (5.0.4) that yPlot was based on before. (See
the PLplot-5.1.0 and 5.2.1 release announcements at
http://plplot.sourceforge.net/announce-plplot-5.2.1.html for details of the
many PLplot changes since version 5.0.4.) For example, the egregious
rendering bugs in example 8 (doc/x08.i) are now long gone, and the revised
doc/x08.i and doc/x11.i show off some new contouring functionality that is
now available with PLplot 3D plotting. The doc/x??.i examples from
yPlot-1.1.2 produce identical results to the corresponding C examples from
PLplot-5.2.1 which is an excellent test of the yPlot interface to PLplot.
Note the yPlot API changes and additions in the CHANGES file.
