Changes in 1.5.2¶

Default Behavior Changes¶

Changed default autorange behavior in boxplots¶

Prior to v1.5.2, the whiskers of boxplots would extend to the minimum and maximum values if the quartiles were all equal (i.e., Q1 = median = Q3). This behavior has been disabled by default to restore consistency with other plotting packages.

To restore the old behavior, simply set autorange=True when calling plt.boxplot.
