Comment(by darkblueb):

 I am looking at the yaml build instructions for a Travis instance, here


 I can see many, very specific library requirements..  I see that this Iris
 project is a) very active, b) challenged by the number of small libraries
 it requires ..

 I suspect that Iris development emphasis is on Trusty, perhaps even
 python3 now. However.. the '''OSGeo Live''' does get a wide audience.. if
 this Iris library is important enough for the UK Met to put this much
 effort into development, perhaps it is important enough to resolve these
 challenges on the Live, not simply declare "release it in September 2014"


 If install_iris.sh  works with matplotlib 1.2+, and the changes to
 install_ipython.sh are accepted, then we are done.

 If someone from the Iris project does show up and make improvements, to
 bring Iris up to 1.6, better. But from the yaml file above, it seems
 likely that there are too many small requirements for that to happen
