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.
