What's New in This Release:
  • fix drawcounties for Python 3.3.
  • update pyproj to version 1.9.3 (remove geographiclib python code, replace with C code from proj4).
  • in contourf and contour, all points outside the map projection region were masked. This meant that if a grid cell was partly inside and partly outside the map projection region, nothing was drawn, leaving a gap along the edge of the map. This was particularly noticeable for very coarse resolution grids. This commit only masks those points more than one grid length beyond the edge of the map projection region. Fixes issue 88.
  • allow for latitude values slightly greater than 90 to exist in shapefiles, (by truncating to 90). Still raise exception if latitude exceeds 90.01.
