StatPlots has just changed it’s name to StatsPlots. This means that to keep using the package (on julia 1+), you will need to
]rm StatPlots ]add StatsPlots
If you have any tutorials using StatsPlots, please change the name in there as well.
The change happens for consistency with the JuliaStats ecosystem, that has StatsModels, StatsKit, and the other plotting package with similar goals, StatsMakie. This reflects that a design goal of StatsPlots is to provide recipes for all statistical types defined in packages included by StatsKit, so that people can plot regressions, clusters, PCAs etc. seamlessly, and that StatsPlots will take on dependencies on the Stats packages to do so.
Note that we are aware that this is not the best design for such functionality. A much ligther design would be for the packages defining the types to take a dependency on the very small non-interfering package RecipesBase (400 loc with no dependencies and no exported names, which only changes along with julia minor versions) and defining recipes for the structs.
The StatsPlots approach reflects our conviction that statistical objects must have plotting functionality defined. And if the better light-weight recipes approach is adopted in the future it would be very easy to port the functionality to StatsKit or the individual stats packages.
In a similar change, we have refactored the PlotRecipes to only contain graph-related recipes (other recipes have been moved to StatsPlots) and renamed it to GraphRecipes.
