Bug report #8639
QGIS 2.0.1 windows build - matplotlib requires dateutil

The standalone windows installer for QGIS includes the python matplotlib module required for (among other things?) the contour plugin, but is missing the dateutil module on which it depends. So currently anything trying to use matplotlib will fail :-(
Could the dateutil module be added to the installer please?

Hi Giovanni. I never installed the standalone 1.8, so don't know whether it was required or no. Brief research indicates that there is a change in how matplotlib deals with external dependencies (or ships).
