There's a new version of holoviews available.
You are currently using 1.8.4. I have updated it to 1.9.0

This release includes a large number of long awaited features,
improvements and bug fixes, including streaming and graph support,
binary transfer of bokeh data, fast Image/RGB regridding, first-class
statistics elements and a complete overhaul of the geometry elements.

Particular thanks to all users and contributers who have reported
issues and submitted pull requests.


  • The kdim and vdim keyword arguments are now positional making the
    declaration of elements less verbose (e.g. Scatter(data, 'x',
    'y')) (\1946)
  • Added Graph, Nodes, and EdgePaths elements adding support for
    plotting network graphs
  • Added datashader based regrid operation for fast Image and RGB
    regridding (\1773)
  • Added support for binary transport when plotting with bokeh,
    providing huge speedups for dynamic plots
  • Added Pipe and Buffer streams for streaming data support
  • Add support for datetime axes on Image, RGB and when applying
    datashading and regridding operations
  • Added Distribution and Bivariate as first class elements which can
    be plotted with matplotlib and bokeh without depending on seaborn
  • Completely overhauled support for plotting geometries with Path,
    Contours and Polygons elements including support for coloring
    individual segments and paths by value


  • Add support for adjoining all elements on matplotlib plots
  • Improved exception handling for data interfaces
  • Add groupby argument to histogram operation
  • Add support for reverse sort on Dataset elements
  • Added support for invert_x/yaxis on all elements


  • Fixed a bug in matplotlib causing the first frame in gif and mp4
    getting stuck
  • Fixed various issues with support for new nested categorical axes
    in bokeh (\1933)
  • A large range of other bug fixes too long to list here.

Changes affecting backwards compatibility:

  • The contours operation no longer overlays the contours on top of
    the supplied Image by default and returns a single
    Contours/Polygons rather than an NdOverlay of them
  • The values of the Distribution element should now be defined as a
    key dimension
  • The seaborn interface was removed in its entirety being replaced
    by first class support for statistics elements such as
    Distribution and Bivariate
  • Since kdims and vdims can now be passed as positional arguments
    the bounds argument on Image is no longer positional
  • The datashade and shade cmap was reverted back to blue due to issues
    with the fire cmap against a white background.
  • Dropped all support for bokeh versions older than 0.12.10
  • histogram operation now returns Histogram elements with less
    generic value dimension and customizable label
