API Changes for 3.6.1#


Colorbars for orphaned mappables are deprecated, but no longer raise#

Before 3.6.0, Colorbars for mappables that do not have a parent Axes would steal space from the current Axes. 3.6.0 raised an error on this, but without a deprecation cycle. For 3.6.1 this is reverted; the current Axes is used, but a deprecation warning is shown instead. In this undetermined case, users and libraries should explicitly specify what Axes they want space to be stolen from: fig.colorbar(mappable, ax=plt.gca()).
