Non urgent; just a request for info/insight for future reference.
TL;DR Could you share a list of the fixed PL dependencies? Then, if necessary I would know when I need to maintain a separate environment for PL. (Is the word “dependency” strangely highlighted in this or is it just me/my browser?)
Until this morning, I was running PL 0.13.0 (released Nov 4) and had recently updated (or installed?) matplotlib to 3.4.3.
This caused no dependency conflict, so I assume (as I said once before, I have no understanding of package management) that PL 0.13.0 did not have a dependency on matplotlib.
I have just updated to PL 0.13.1 for the very latest improvements, and
pip downgraded matplotlib from 3.4.3 to 3.4.2, which would seem to suggest that there is now a dependency on matplotlib.
Can you confirm that? And what are the current dependencies
Now, matplotlib 3.4.3 was released in August, so I’m a little puzzled about how the need for a dependency on 3.4.2 arose between 0.13.0 and 13.1.
Reason for asking: it’s a bit weak, I realise now (I just decided to double check details before clicking send!), but I saw matplotlib fixed various critical errors including one related to numpy 1.21… but I see now that PL has a dependency on numpy 1.19.2 so, not really needed, but wanting the latest bugfixes & features for non-PL package did prompt the investigation
