Plans for version 5.1 of RGraphWritten by Richard Heyes, on 29th July 2019
For the next version of RGraph - version 5.1 - I think I'm going to remove a lot of redundant legacy code. Some of the code in RGraph has been there for over a decade in order to preserve backwards compatibility.
But because it's so old and the current configuration style has been in place for some time it's no longer necessary and is only taking up space (like myself some would say...)!
So the current
JSON configuration is the only one that will be available but it's the best
so there's no great loss.
Here's a short list of what's going to be taken out. It doesn't look like a lot but there will be a lot of testing that will be necessary and a lot of documentation pages will need updating because behind the scenes they use an older configuration style.
- Older configuration methods will be removed so only the current
JSONstyle configuration will work.
- The unused
obj.propertyNameAliaseswill be removed.
- The function
RGraph.OldBrowserCompatwill be removed.
- The property list in each library will be updated to be
JSON, like the
setmethods will be updated to only allow the
JSONand new property name formats (eg
setmethod will have any redundant BC code removed.
getmethod will also have redundant BC code removed.
This will be the main focus of version 5.1 - possibly the only thing that's in the release (though a few other minor things may sneak in). If you have any other suggestions then let me know what they are using the support forum.
