A small update, when I uploaded the wheels yesterday I only uploaded about half of them  and did not check my work carefully enough. This has been rectified, sorry to everyone who had installs fail his morning.
 I downoladed one of the wheels from http://wheels.scipy.org/ twice, the browser helpfully added (1) to the name, when I when to upload everything twine got half way through and failed out on that file. I thought it had done everything else, but it had actually only done everything up to that file.

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
