# CTAN update: pgfplots

Date: February 1, 2015 3:11:18 PM CET

Christian Feuersänger submitted an update to the
pgfplots
package.
Version number: 1.12
License type: gpl3
Summary description: Create normal/logarithmic plots in two and three
dimensions.
Announcement text:

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) - 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 - fixed bug: memory allocation in FPU consumed too much memory - fixed bug: boxplots: removed compilation error due to spurious spaces in options list - fixed bug: boxplots: now uses standard quantile estimators: has all 9 estimators of R and uses the same as in Excel as default (as of compat=1.12) - fixed bug: boxplots: sometimes failed to compute boxplot statistics for special inputs - fixed bug: boxplots: now, it sets 'mark=*' for outliers if there is no mark (compat=1.12) - fixed regression: compat=1.11 broke arcs inside of axis - new feature: ensured that arcs inside of axis make use of 'axis cs' and 'axis direction cs' automatically - new feature: ensured that (0:1) is evaluated with axis cs - fixed bug: precision of transformation cartesian to polar was too low (added atan2 to fpu) - fixed bug: z buffer caused 'mesh legend' to produce a compile error - new feature: added 'y filter/.expression={y==3 ? nan : y}' to simplify coordinate filters More details can be found in the README shipped with the package.

## 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.
