Summary description: Create normal/logarithmic plots in two and three

Announcement text:

1.11: usability + bug fixes.
- new feature: "hide obscured x ticks=false" to disable the feature
which hides ticks
- simplified UI for symbolic coords: now, it accepts unexpandable
  dictionary entries including umlauts, undefined macros, math mode, ...
- simplified UI for symbolic coords: added magic prefix 
	[normalized]<number> to allow something like
- simplified UI for custom annotations: one does not need to say "axis
cs" any longer; coordinates like (1,2) are now automatically
interpreted as (axis cs:1,2)
- new feature: 'type ticklabels with struts' improves baseline
alignment of tick labels
- new feature: 'trig format plots=rad' allows to use radians in
trigonometric evaluations
- simplified 'external lib': added driver auto-detection for pdflatex,
lualatex, xelatex, dvips (\usepgfplotslibrary{external}, or, with the
next PGF release, \usetikzlibrary{external})
- simplified UI for \addplot coordinates: now, it expands macros as it
- new feature: 'intersection segments' now accepts negative indices to
count from the last backwards
- simplified UI: 'intersection segments' now accepts new syntax with
1-based indices (old 0-based are still supported)
- fixed bug: fillbetween has had a problem with pins on input paths
- fixed bug: now, 'stacked ignores zero' is no longer applied to error
- fixed bug: tick lines were drawn incorrectly for centered axis lines
in 3d
- fixed bug: variable=u failed to work in some contexts
- fixed bug: fill between implicitly activated layers, but did not
install the correct layers for grid lines etc.
- fixed bug: z grid style was applied to y grid style
