The "pip" installation tool uses this URL to find the correct version of the matplotlib package:
http://pypi.python.org/simple/matplotlib/
matplotlib 1.0.0 appears on that page, but pip selects the very old 0.91.1 release for installation instead.

I'm not expert enough with either matplotlib or pip to determine whether this is a pip bug or a configuration
issue in the matplotlib entry on the Python Package Index.

Python 2.4.3 (#1, Sep 8 2010, 11:37:47)
[GCC 4.1.2 20080704 (Red Hat 4.1.2-48)] on linux2

I have the same issue, even when trying to force 1.0.1 version

This is a duplicate of issue #171, closed as "Fixed", but obviously, this is not fixed as of 2011/07/20 (using pip 1.0.2 and python 2.7.1 on ubuntu 11.04):

pip install -v matplotlib
Downloading/unpacking matplotlib
  Using version 0.91.1 (newest of versions: 0.91.1, 0.91.0, 0.86.2, 0.86.1, 0.86, dev)
  Downloading matplotlib-0.91.1.tar.gz (3.9Mb)

$> pip install -v matplotlib
Downloading/unpacking matplotlib
  Using version 1.1.0 (newest of versions: 1.1.0, 1.0.1, 0.91.1, 0.91.0, 0.86.2, 0.86.1, 0.86, dev)

Admittedly, 1.1.1 wasn't found, but that is for another issue (#1045).
