Bar Chart Rendering Performance

Performance has been improved for large data sets. The chart has also been enhanced to better deal with large numbers of series, especially for bar charts.


Thematic Map Automatic Marker Sizing

Thematic Map now supports automatic sizing of markers whose relative size is specified through the new value property.

This is similar to the support in bubble charts, making it much easier to configure markers for responsive layouts.

                                                                        

NBox Custom Count Labels

A custom count label can now be specified for each NBox cell, allowing the application to display total number and percentage of markers in the cell, which is especially useful for overflow cases.

Other Enhancements                    
  • Chart: Tooltip and converter support has been added to the donut chart center label
  • Tag Cloud: A color attribute is now supported on tag cloud items, providing a convenience API that is consistent with data items in other components.
  • Thematic Map: Thematic Map tooltips can now be customized for regions that aren't associated with data.
