Summary description: pgfplots - Create normal/logarithmic plots
                     in two and three dimensions for LaTeX.

Announcement text:

 1.9 comes with the following changes:

  - new feature: asymmetric error bars

  - new feature: activated math parser for axis limit arguments,
    arguments in axis cs, and domain argument in log plots

  - new feature: stacked bar plots place their 'nodes near
    coords' correctly in the middle and print the increment

  - new feature: stacked bar plots suppress empty increments

  - new feature: 'scatter/position=relative|absolute' allow to
    position 'nodes near coords' absolutely.
    use-case: bar plots + nodes near coords which are at, say,
    y=0 rather than their y value

  - new feature: integration of smooth shadings & auto-CMYK
    conversion \usepackage[cmyk]{xcolor} or
    \selectcolormodel{cmyk} will reconfigure pgfplots to use
    CMYK (document-wide)

  - new feature (advanced audience only): programmatic access to
    data coordinates during the visualization phase
    -> allows much more customization for error bars, stacked
       plots, nodes near coords.

  - wrote beginner tutorials

  - fixed bug: error bars and point meta did not work together

  - fixed bug: stacked plots did not respect 'visualization depends on'

  - fixed bug: luatex 0.76 is not backwards compatible; added version switch 

  - fixed bug: ternary library precision has been improved

  - fixed bug: problem with axis limits very close to 0

  - fixed bug: colormap specification limit case produced out of bounds exception
