Dear all,

On behalf of the Visvis development team, I'm pleased to announce version
1.8 of Visvis - the object oriented approach to visualization.

Essentially, visvis is an object oriented layer of Python on top of OpenGl,
thereby combining the power of OpenGl with the usability of Python. A
Matlab-like interface in the form of a set of functions allows easy
creation of objects (e.g. plot(), imshow(), volshow(), surf()).

The most notable changes are:

   - Better handling of NaN, Inf in line objects, barplots, boxplots, and
   calculation of axes limits.
   - The bar plot now supports the bottom keyword, allowing for stacked bar
   - Meshes can now be made (semi)transparent by giving RGBA values to
   - Better separation of widget and figure creation, making it easier to
   embed visvis in threaded applications.
