Release 77 Notes: Saturday, Aug 18, 2012

What's New in Release 77?

For Release 77, we worked extensively on improving our charting capabilities. As a result, we are very proud to bring you two new types of charts! Some of the highlights in this release include:

  • New chart type: Scatter Plot chart
  • New chart type: Bubble chart
  • Internet Explorer 8 performance boost

Scatter Plot and Bubble Charts

We are extremely thrilled to bring you these two new chart types which will increase your charting options and also improve overall charting capabilities. The scatter plot and bubble charts enable you to plot two metrics, one on each axis, to see whether a correlation can be determined between them. To start using these charts, click on the new Scatter Chart and Bubble Chart visualization icons on the top right. Then, you can customize your charts by clicking the "Show Configuration" link to the right of the visualization icons.

Notice in the bubble chart below that a third metric can be selected and placed in the "Size" bucket, in chart configuration menu, which will determine the diameter of the bubble.

Internet Explorer 8 performance boost

For our IE 8 users, we've made some significant performance improvements specifically for the legacy browsers. From now on, Reports and Dashboards will render much faster in IE 8.

 

 Stay tuned for more new features coming to GoodData soon!

    Are the bubble charts animated?  If not...is that a planned release for later?

    Hi Chad, the charts are not animated yet. We have it on the roadmap, but it is quite far out at this point.

    Can you please check that the axis min/max setting capabilities are working?  I couldn't reset those on either X or Y axis.

    Hi Stephanie, the min/max functionality on the charts allows you to set higher range than what you have in the data, but to set lower range, you need to filter out the data first by creating a filter on the appropriate metrics. We will improve the usability for this usecase going forward. Thank you for your understanding!
