Live-Charts v0.8.0 Release Notes

Release Date: 2016-11-20 // over 5 years ago
  • 0.8.0 is a really important release, it demonstrates that the structure of the library is solid enough to take it to more platforms, and here it is the first step welcome UWP! ๐ŸŽ‰, you are next Xamarin! special thanks to @AuroraDysis who made most of the work taking LiveCharts to UWP.

    This version has small, but braking changes, coming from 0.7.x should not require any change in most of the cases:

    ๐Ÿ†• New Features

    • Welcome UWP the library is finally in UWP, with some known issues that you can find in the Issues section, the package is already in Nuget: PM> Install-Package LiveCharts.Uwp
    • welcome back net 4.0 wrongly I removed support to net 40 in previous versions, well now it is back, the Nuget package contains both builds net4.0 and PCL profile 328 (current one).
    • ๐Ÿ“ฆ For some reason all the nuget packages missed .pdb, and xml docs files, they are now included since 0.8, this in makes the library more friendly to users, by enabling IDE intellisense and a better debugging experience.
    • ๐Ÿš€ LiveCharts.Geared v1.2 will be released soon, which extends the high performance to all the series in the library (but heat series).
    • ๐Ÿ†• new Gantt chart see an example there -> https://github.com/beto-rodriguez/Live-Charts/tree/master/Examples/WinForms/Cartesian/GanttChart
    • Wpf themes are included now in the library, they are light and an easy way to get started styling your charts : https://lvcharts.net/App/examples/v1/wpf/Themes

    Major Changes (don't be scared to update, normally they won't affect your current work)

    • โšก๏ธ Type of Axis.MinValue and Axis.MaxValue changed from double? to double to fix incompatibility with UWP, in older version o clear zooming you used to axis.MinValue = null, the equivalent in 0.8 is axis.MinValue = double.Nan, the example in the web site is already updated to 0.8 API
    • ๐Ÿ‘ Section.FromValue and Section.ToValue are obsolete and will be replaced in future versions with Section.Value and Section.SectionWidth to fix a bug with draggable sections, FromValue/ToValue works, but there is no warranty that it will be supported in future versions, if you are using a draggable section please use the new properties instead, the site already contains examples using the new syntax.
