On Fri, 29 Jul 2011 Christian Feuersänger submitted an update to the
pgfplots
package.
Summary description: Create normal/logarithmic plots in two and three dimensions for LaTeX/TeX/ConTeXt.
License type: gpl
Announcement text:

PGFPlots version 1.5 comes with a huge bunch of new visualization features: - Contour plots, - Histograms, - Quiver plots, - patch plots (library) - Triangle Meshes - Bilinear Elements - Quadratic Triangles - Biquadratic Quadrilaterals - Coons Patches - Discrete colorbars, - Table sorting, - Linear regression, - Ternary diagrams, - Tieline Plots - Smith Charts - Polar axes, - Empty lines in input files result in interrupted plots, - PDF user defined coordinate mouse popups - CMYK colormaps and shadings, - new markers and cycle lists - access to axis limits, - \addplot3 graphics: pgfplots draws an appropriate axis for a three-dimensional(!) external png graphics - 3D axes: support to provide explicit unit vectors: - explicit unit vectors - explicit unit vectors which are uniformly rescaled to match width/height - 3D axes: improved support for unit vector ratios - improvements of the groupplot styles - preliminary support for (2d) bar plots in 3d axes - new shader 'faceted interp' - table package: - 'every nth row' style - 'comment chars' key to define comment characters in input files - 'skip first n' style - lots of smaller bugfixes (see ChangeLog for details)

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.
