AnyChart 7.4.0 Available March 30th, 2015 by Margaret Skomorokh

A new version of our component – AnyChart 7.4.0 – is available for download. We have implemented a number of important features including 4 new chart types: Sparkline, Error, Box&Whisker, and Circular Gauges. Check out the main improvements:

Sparkline Charts
Sparkline charts are designed to fit a lot of them in a tiny space. Sparklines are good at presenting changes in time for an array of similar data, e.g. currency or medical trends.

Error Charts
Error Charts are to be used as error or deviation indicators. Error bars often represent one standard deviation of uncertainty, one standard error, or a certain confidence interval.

Box and Whisker Charts
Box Charts are predominantly used in descriptive statistics. Using a box chart is a way of representing groups of numerical data. Boxes operate with specific terms, such as whiskers, quartiles, and median.

Circular Gauges
Circular Gauge is a radial chart that can be used as a clock, speedometer, compass, audio feature tuner or any other gauge that represents the value as an angle on a circle plot.

AnyChart 7.3.0 with Scatter, Radar, and Polar Charts Released December 17th, 2014 by Margaret Skomorokh

Great news! We are happy to announce the release of a new version of our product – AnyChart 7.3.0. The basic package of AnyChart now includes three long-awaited chart types: Scatter, Radar, and Polar.

A Scatter Chart shows the relationships among the numeric values in several data series, or plots two groups of numbers as one series of XY coordinates.

A Radar Chart is a graphical method of displaying multivariate data in the form of a two-dimensional chart of three or more quantitative variables represented on axes starting from the same point. It is also known as web chart, spider chart, star chart, cobweb chart, star plot, irregular polygon, or kiviat diagram.

A Polar Chart allows to draw a scatter chart using the polar coordinate system, which is a two-dimensional coordinate system in which each point on a plane is determined by a distance from a fixed point and an angle from a fixed direction.

AnyChart 7.1.1 Released September 18th, 2014 by Timothy Loginov

Today we are making a minor release with some bug fixes. We would like to mention that these bugs were found with a help of our extensive QA and testing systems. To create a good component, it is not enough to implement all features needed — one should also make them work well. That is why AnyChart products go through numerous tests and the strict verification by our QA Team.

To make tests and control quality, we use our own testing system with a cute name CAT — which, in fact, stands for The Complex for Automated Testing. The systems uses Selenium and makes all tests both in the headless WebKit PhantomJS and real browsers. The CAT supports testing sessions and never stands idle. There are thousands of tests which cover all methods of all classes from the API. All bugs we have ever found are also covered with tests, so we are sure that a bug which was killed once will never appear again.

Cat 1

Though we are doing our best to find all issues ourselves, we appreciate help from our customers, and for in 7.1.1 release we thank our good friend Kevin Brown from Xportability for two bug reports:

  • DVF-752 Duplicate namespace declaration in IE.
  • DVF-808 A conflict with the prototype.

And we thank our QA Team for the other bug fixes. You can take a look at the list in our version history.

AnyChart 7 Released August 29th, 2014 by Margaret Skomorokh

AnyChart is entering a new era – leaving behind Flash and moving to a more modern and promising technology, JavaScript HTML5.


Today we are proud to announce the release of AnyChart 7 – a new HTML5 version of our product. The main great features of AnyChart 7 are:

  • Groundbreaking, much more flexible API.
  • A higher performance – milliseconds of rendering time, even on large data sets.
  • A completely new system of dealing with data.
  • Incredibly flexible opportunities for dashboard creation.
  • An opportunity to use any element separately (framework).
  • An opportunity to change any setting of your chart on-the-fly.
  • Full compatibility of all types of charts (including, very soon, AnyStock, AnyGantt and AnyMap).
  • Borderless opportunities for customization.
  • Compatibility with all platforms including iOS/Android and outdated browsers.

The chart types available in AnyChart 7 are presented in the gallery. You can also learn about the new API and read the documentation.

We have already released two versions, AnyChart 7.0.0 and AnyChart 7.1.0 (see our version history). Further we are going to release a new update every two-three months or more often. You can find out our plans for the future in the roadmap.

Those who use AnyChart 6 should not be worried: we will satisfy our support obligations according to the agreements, and all resources related to the old version will be available here: http://anychart.com/products/anychart/6.x/. But public bug fixes will be made during only one year, and there will be no new features for AnyChart 6. As for migration from 6.x to 7.x – in a couple of months we will offer a converter module which will help you to move to the new version.
