Announcement text:

1.12.1: minor bugfix release - fixed bug: incompatibility of 1.12 with unicode-math - fixed bug: lua backend failed to work with table input and dependency on \coordindex - fixed bug: lua backend failed with 'forget plot' 1.12: scalability + performance - scalability: reduced TeX memory consumption for huge inline tables - scalability: lualatex allows bigger 3d graphics - scalability: lualatex now reduces compilation time for huge 3d graphics (requires \pgfplotsset{compat=newest} at the time of this writing) surf shader=faceted: time reduced to 61% of pdflatex (\addplot3[surf,samples=70] {exp(-x^2-y^2 +x*y)}) surf shader=interp: time reduced to 25% of pdflatex (\addplot3[surf,shader=interp,samples=70] {exp(-x^2-y^2 +x*y)}) surf shader=interp, parametric: time reduced to 36% of pdflatex (\addplot3[surf,shader=interp,z buffer=sort, samples=50,domain=-1:0 ,y domain=0:2*pi] ({sqrt(1-x^2) * cos(deg(y))}, {sqrt( 1-x^2 ) * sin(deg(y))}, x);) surf shader=faceted, parametric: time reduced to 40% of pdflatex (\addplot3[surf,z buffer=sort, samples=50,domain=-1:0,y domain=0:2* pi] ({sqrt(1-x^2) * cos(deg(y))}, {sqrt( 1-x^2 ) * sin(deg(y))}, x);) - scalability: lualated now reduces compilation time for boxplots. 10000 input points from table: time reduced to 23% of pdflatex - fixed bug: 3d axes where all axes used log scale produced compile failure - fixed bug: axis equal did not respect "disabledatascaling" - fixed bug: mesh legend was confused by color input=explicit - fixed bug: colorbar style did not reset zmin/zmax [... more in the package's README]

## 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.
