# Changes for 0.86¶

Matplotlib data is installed into the matplotlib module.
This is similar to package_data.  This should get rid of
having to check for many possibilities in _get_data_path().
The MATPLOTLIBDATA env key is still checked first to allow
for flexibility.

1) Separated the color table data from cm.py out into
a new file, _cm.py, to make it easier to find the actual
code in cm.py and to add new colormaps. Everything
from _cm.py is imported by cm.py, so the split should be
transparent.
2) Enabled automatic generation of a colormap from
a list of colors in contour; see modified
examples/contour_demo.py.
3) Support for imshow of a masked array, with the
ability to specify colors (or no color at all) for
masked regions, and for regions that are above or
below the normally mapped region.  See
