The jfreechart NEWS source code

JFreeChart 1.0.13
20 April 2009

* SPECIAL NOTICE:  There will be a birds-of-a-feather session for JFreeChart *
* at this year's JavaOne conference in San Francisco.  The session is        *
* scheduled for 6.45pm to 7.35pm on Wednesday 3 June.                        *

This release contains:

- updates to the ChartPanel class to support copying charts to the clipboard, 
  panning and mouse-wheel zooming, and an overlay mechanism that supports
- enhancements to the auto-range calculation for axes, providing the ability
  to use subranges only and also to skip hidden series;
- updates for many of the CategoryItemRenderer implementations to ensure that
  they respect the 'seriesVisible' flags;
- an improvement to the TimeSeries class so that it is no longer necessary to
  specify the time period type in the constructor;
- a new SamplingXYLineRenderer for improving the performance of time series
  charts with large datasets;
- the XYSeries/XYSeriesCollection classes now cache the minimum and maximum
  data values to improve the performance of charts with large datasets;
- entities are now created for the chart, data area and axes, allowing mouse
  clicks to be detected for these regions;
- added a bar alignment factor to the XYBarRenderer class;
- a new 'errorIndicatorStroke' field for the StatisticalLineAndShapeRenderer 
  and XYErrorRenderer classes;
- added a new HeatMapDataset interface, DefaultHeatMapDataset implementation,
  and a HeatMapUtilities class to make it easier to create heat map charts;
- there is a new flag to allow an XYDataImageAnnotation to be included in the
  automatic range calculation for the axes;
- additional attributes in the XYTextAnnotation class;
- added a sampleFunction2DToSeries() method to the DatasetUtilities class;
- some changes to the ChartPanel class that help to work around a regression in
  JRE 1.6.0_10 relating to drawing in XOR mode.  Regarding this final point:
     * the default value for the useBuffer flag has changed to true, which means
       that all charts will, by default, be rendered into an off-screen image
       before being displayed in the ChartPanel;
     * the zoom rectangle is drawn using XOR mode *only* when the useBuffer
       flag has been set to false.
  For most usage, this should improve performance (but at the cost of using more
  memory for each ChartPanel used in your application);

Bug Fixes:

2690293 : Problem with Javascript escape characters;
2617557 : StandardDialScale ignored tickLabelPaint;

  in the equals()/hashCode() methods;
- ChartFactory.createStackedXYAreaChart() now uses StackedXYAreaRenderer2, for
  better handling of negative values;
- Added crosshair support for XYBarRenderer.

Experimental Code:

In this release, some new (incomplete) classes have been included in the 
org.jfree.experimental.* namespace.  These classes are not part of the 
standard API, but are included for developers to experiment with and provide
feedback on.  Hopefully in the future, refined versions of these classes will
be incorporated into the main library.  PLEASE NOTE THAT THE API FOR THESE

JFreeChart 1.0.1:
Released 27 January 2006.  This is primarily a bug fix release.  In addition,
there are some API adjustments (there should be no breakage of applications 
coded to the 1.0.0 API).

API adjustments:
- BarRenderer: added a new flag (includeBaseInRange), plus accessor 
    methods, that controls whether or not the base value for the bar is 
    included in the range calculated by the findRangeBounds() method;
- BubbleXYItemLabelGenerator: new class;
- Range: added a new method expandToInclude(Range, double), this is used by 
    the BarRenderer class;
- TaskSeriesCollection: added two new methods, getSeries(int) and 
- TimeSeriesCollection:  the domainIsPointsInTime flag has been deprecated.  
    The flag serves no function now that renderers are used to calculate the 
    domain bounds, so you can safely delete any calls to the
    setDomainIsPointsInTime() method;
- XYPlot: added a new getAnnotations() method;
- XYSeries: the update(int, Number) method has been deprecated and a new method
    updateByIndex(int, Number) has been added;
