[REL] Matplotlib 3.0.0


Happy to announce Matplotlib 3.0.0!

This is the first version of Matplotlib to only support Python 3.

If you need Python 2.7 support the 2.2.x LTS series will continue to receive critical bug-fixes until 2020.

Highlights of this release include:

 - GUI backend is selected at run-time based on what toolkits are
   installed.  A GUI toolkit will not be selected on a headless
 - New cyclic color map *twilight*
 - Improvements to automatic layout of titles, ticks, and GridSpec
 - Many bug fixes!

For the full details see  https://matplotlib.org/users/whats_new.html and  https://matplotlib.org/api/api_changes.html for whats new and API changes respectively.

For packagers: Matplotlib no longer depends on six or pytz.

A big thank you to everyone who worked on this release in terms of commits (~130 people have commits), reporting issues, and review.

I expect there to be a v3.0.1 release in the next month or so.
