Major release of Matplotlib

This release completely overhauls the default style of the plots.

Highlights include:

  • 'viridis' is default color map instead of jet.
  • Modernized the default color cycle.
  • Many more functions respect the color cycle.
  • Line dash patterns scale with linewidth.
  • Change default font to DejaVu, now supports most Western
    alphabets (including Greek, Cyrillic and Latin with diacritics),
    math symbols and emoji out of the box.
  • Faster text rendering.
  • Improved auto-limits.
  • Ticks out and only on the right and bottom spines by default.
  • Improved auto-ticking, particularly for log scales and dates.
  • Improved image support (imshow respects scales and eliminated a
    class of artifacts).
