ANN: Bokeh 0.5.2 released!

On behalf of the Bokeh team, I am very happy to announce the release of Bokeh version 0.5.2!

Bokeh is a Python library for visualizing large and realtime datasets on the web.

Its goal is to provide to developers (and domain experts) with capabilities to easily create novel and powerful visualizations that extract insight from local or remote (possibly large) data sets, and to easily publish those visualization to the web for others to explore and interact with.

This release includes many bug fixes and improvements over our last recent 0.5.1 release:

See the CHANGELOG for full details.

In upcoming releases, you should expect to see new layout capabilities (multiple axes, colorbar axes, better grid plots and improved annotations), new tools, more widgets and more charts, as well as an Object Query API, R language bindings, Blaze integration and cloud hosting for Bokeh apps.
