API 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.
