Release notes for 2013

 

Release notes for the December 2013 release

The December 2013 stable release of RGraph is now available. The major addition this month is that of a HTML based key. It's similar to the regular key in appearance but is HTML based (it's a TABLE) - and so you can add links and manipulate it as you would other DOM elements.

Also worthy of note is that this will be the last in the line of the RGraph2 versions - as of the next release RGraph will be bumped to version 3. This is mainly so that I can introduce a jQuery dependency. In turn this will reduce the size of the RGraph libraries and provide many advantages.

Release notes for the October 2013 release

The October 2013 stable release of RGraph is now available. The most notable addition for this release is the CSV reader. This is an object that fetches your CSV file via an AJAX request and parses it into useful data. It has methods such as getRow() and getCol() so that you can manipulate the data. It should make working with server-side scripts (eg PHP, ASP, Java etc) easier as they can just output the information to be charted as CSV data and then this CSV object can fetch that data easily.

Release notes for the March 2013 release

The March 2013 release of RGraph is now available. This release has a few more changes than usual and those changes are significant in their nature. The biggest change is the new text ( RGraph.Text2() ) function. Text handling has been rewritten from the ground up, it's more versatile and it's faster too. The main advantage of this rewrite is that when the text is horizontal or vertical it retains the coordinates of the bounding box. This allows for hotspots on the text - and has also allowed for the new RGraph.Drawing.Text drawing API object. This new object makes it very easy to add text to your charts that is automatically redrawn and which also supports events and tooltips.

The second significant change is the scale generation. You're unlikely to notice any change here unless you use small decimals but again the new function is faster and it also allows for any number of Y labels - and you can see an example of that on this demo page which has 17 labels.

Release notes for the January 2013 release

The January 2013 release of RGraph is now available. This release brings with it a significant increase in speed for effects. This will be most notable in Firefox, Opera and Safari. Everything is affected - but you'll only really notice it if you use effects. You can see the speed increase by comparing the old Bar chart Wave effect and the up-to-date one here: http://www.rgraph.net/docs/animation-and-visual-effects.html#bar.wave The RGraph.DrawXAxis() and RGraph.DrawYAxis() functions have been extended with new options (and as of the February release will be available as Drawing objects too). And the RGraph.ObjectRegistry.getObjectsByType() and RGraph.ObjectRegistry.getFirstObjectByType() have had their argument lists updated - so now you just pass them the type you want.
