# Only the old version of pgfplots is available with MiKTeX (version 1.7)

I am looking for a solution to install the last version (currently 1.8) of pgfplots via the package manager MiKTeX on Windows. However, MiKTeX only offers the old version 1.7 of pgfplots.

Is there a way to force MiKTeX to install the new version?

if the new version is on CTAN, and miktex doesn't offer an update after a reasonable time you can make a feature request. – Ulrike Fischer Sep 7 '13 at 14:54
Just sent the feature request. – Laurent Dudok de Wit Sep 7 '13 at 16:39
What do you get when you run the tex file \documentclass{article}\usepackage{pgfplots}\begin{document}\pgfplotsversion\en‌​d{document} ? – percusse Sep 7 '13 at 18:37
Well, I get 1.8, then everything should be OK ! In the package manager, the version displayed is 1.7, which confused me. – Laurent Dudok de Wit Sep 7 '13 at 18:39
Ah OK, the version info in MikTeX is wrong then. – percusse Sep 7 '13 at 18:40

The version info in MikTeX was wrong.

Running the TeX file: \documentclass{article}\usepackage{pgfplots}\begin{document}\pgfplotsversion\en‌​d{document} the result shows the version number 1.8
