Current stable release is v0.10.0, and it is tested with Julia 1.1.0.
Gaston's documentation can be found here.
Why use Gaston, when there are modern, powerful alternatives such as Plots.jl and MakiE.jl? These are some Gaston features that may be attractive to you:
Gaston's philosophy is that plotting to the screen should be fast and non-ugly. Publication-quality plots are the domain of TiKZ and pgfplots.
Knowledge of gnuplot is not required. Users familiar with gnuplot, however, will be able to take advantage of Gaston's facilities to access the (vast) feature set not directly exposed by Gaston.
Gaston requires gnuplot to be installed in your system. It has been tested with versions 5.0 and above, and version 5.2 is recommended. Gaston also requires Julia v1.1.
To install Gaston using Julia's packaging system, enter Julia's package manager prompt with
], and run
(v1.1) pkg> add Gaston

working properly. To run the tests, enter Julia's package manager with
] and run
(v1.1) pkg> test Gaston
