New Series View Types

Side-by-Side Stacked and Side-by-Side Full-Stacked Bar series are now available for both 2D and 3D charting (click image to see larger version):

Annotations Support

You can now create text or image annotations anchored to a chart, pane, or series point. You can fully customize their layout, positioning and appearance by using centralized access and management via the chart's repository.

As you can see in the following screenshot, end-users can easily move, resize and rotate annotation items.

Legend Enhancements

You can now change legend marker appearance by customizing marker colors, fill style, size, visibility, and specifying a custom marker image. You can additionally customize font, color and visibility of legend text using event handlers.

Other Improvements

  • A new event allows you to display custom mouse cursors.
  • You can display custom text when a chart is too small to accommodate the diagram, or when a series has no data which results in an empty diagram.
  • You can display minor axis tick marks only.
  • You can specify an image format (bitmap or metafile) that will be used for chart's exporting or printing.

Great features, but I am missing the one that I need most:

The capability in pie charts for multi-line labels (that wrap when they become to large - this is when they start making the chart really tiny)? That is something needed desperately and supported by most other charting packages.
