I.e. there's now support for a fake
gp terminal that's not a gnuplot terminal
at all, but rather a way to produce a self-executable gnuplot script. 99% of
this was already implemented in
--dump, but this way to access that
functionality is much nicer. In fact, the machine running
even need to have
gnuplot installed at all. I needed this because I was making
complicated plots on a remote box, and X-forwarding was being way too slow. Now
the remote box creates the self-plotting gnuplot scripts, I scp those, evaluate
them locally, and then work with interactive visualizations.
The python frontend
gnuplotlib has received an analogous update.
