# CTAN Update: pgfplots

Date: August 29, 2012 7:42:59 AM CEST

On Sat, 25 Aug 2012 Christian Feuersänger submitted an update to the
pgfplots
package.
Summary description: Create normal/logarithmic plots in two and three dimensions for LaTeX.
License type: gpl
Announcement text:

1.6.1: - fixed incompatibility lualatex,shader=interp, and german package (introduced in 1.6) 1.6: - added support for layered graphics (main use case: multiple axes and layers) - added support for second colormap in mesh plots (mesh/interior colormap name) - added support for scopes inside of axes - contour plots: added ability to provide list of discrete labels (mesh/levels) - empty lines are interpreted as interruptions in data plots (was undocumented since 1.4) - added more scaling options to 'scale mode=scale uniformly' (affects axis equal in 3d and \addplot3 graphics) - fixed wrong implementation of 'axis equal' and 'unit vector ratio' in 3d (backwards compatible for 2d, but not for 3d - the 3d implementation was plain wrong) - fixed incompatibility of lualatex and shader=interp - fixed bugs/added features around \addplot3 graphics - fixed bug: colorbar did not support ymode=log - fixed a couple of minor bugs - fixed bounding box computation for clip=false,axis lines=none

This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/graphics/pgf/contrib/pgfplots/ . More information is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/pgfplots (if the package is new it may take a day for that information to appear). We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org .

Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf

## pgfplots – Create normal/logarithmic plots in two and three dimensions

PGFPlots draws high-quality function plots in normal or logarithmic scaling with a user-friendly interface directly in TeX. The user supplies axis labels, legend entries and the plot coordinates for one or more plots and PGFPlots applies axis scaling, computes any logarithms and axis ticks and draws the plots, supporting line plots, scatter plots, piecewise constant plots, bar plots, area plots, mesh-- and surface plots and some more.

Pgfplots is based on PGF/TikZ (PGF); it runs equally for LaTeX/TeX/ConTeXt.
