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

Announcement text:

1.12: scalability + performance
- scalability: reduced TeX memory consumption for huge inline tables
- scalability: lualatex allows bigger 3d graphics
- scalability: lualatex now reduces compilation time for huge 3d
graphics (requires \pgfplotsset{compat=newest} at the time of this
- scalability: lualated now reduces compilation time for boxplots.
    10000 input points from table: time reduced to 23% of pdflatex
- fixed bug: 3d axes where all axes used log scale produced compile
- fixed bug: axis equal did not respect "disabledatascaling"
- fixed bug: mesh legend was confused by color input=explicit
- fixed bug: colorbar style did not reset zmin/zmax
- fixed bug: memory allocation in FPU consumed too much memory 
- fixed bug: boxplots: removed compilation error due to spurious spaces
in options list
- fixed bug: boxplots: now uses standard quantile estimators: has all 9
estimators of R and uses the same as in Excel as default (as of
- fixed bug: boxplots: sometimes failed to compute boxplot statistics
for special inputs
- fixed bug: boxplots: now, it sets 'mark=*' for outliers if there is
no mark (compat=1.12)
- fixed regression: compat=1.11 broke arcs inside of axis
- new feature: ensured that arcs inside of axis make use of 'axis cs'
and 'axis direction cs' automatically
- new feature: ensured that (0:1) is evaluated with axis cs
- fixed bug: precision of transformation cartesian to polar was too low
(added atan2 to fpu)
- fixed bug: z buffer caused 'mesh legend' to produce a compile error
- new feature: added 'y filter/.expression={y==3 ? nan : y}' to
simplify coordinate filters
