=====================
+Python 3.x support
+------------------
+
+Matplotlib 1.2 is the first version to support Python 3.x,
+specifically Python 3.1 and 3.2. To make this happen in a reasonable
+way, we also had to drop support for Python versions earlier than 2.6.
+
+This work was done by Michael Droettboom, the Cape Town Python Users'
+Group, many others and supported financially in part by the SAGE
+project.
+
+The following GUI backends work under Python 3.x: Gtk3Agg, Gtk3Cairo,
+Qt4Agg, TkAgg and MacOSX. The other backends do not yet have workable
