Data Grid Live Editor
Grid cells of the Gantt Chart can now be edited in the Live Edit mode. If the input data is valid, all the changes can be saved or aborted if otherwise.
Brand New Timeline
Release 8.2.0 has brought significant improvements to the timeline header in Gantt charts. From now on, the number of its levels and their format can be set manually, which further increases the timeline's flexibility. In addition, automatic formatting of dates in response to zoomIn and zoomOut has become even better.
We've made it possible to override drawing of any Gantt timeline element (baseline, milestone, etc.). There are no limits to how they can look, you can create any custom visualization based on your imagination.
New Gantt API for Timeline elements
Data Grid Expand/Collapse buttons customization
Now it's possible to apply colors to the elements of Gantt charts using functions. Each of the functions contains a comprehensive set of data about an element to be colored. Below is the list of methods now supporting such functions: rowHoverFill(), rowSelectedFill(), connectorFill(), connectorStroke(), selectedConnectorStroke(), baseFill(), baseStroke(), baselineFill(), baselineStroke(), milestoneFill(), milestoneStroke(), parentFill(), parentStroke(), progressFill(), progressStroke(), selectedElementFill(), selectedElementStroke().
Element Size and Position settings
To improve the visual perception of Gantt Charts and make it easier to customize them according to a style, we've added a lot of settings for adjusting the size and the position of all elements in a Gantt Chart. Here's the complete list of such methods: baseBarHeight(), baseBarAnchor(), baseBarPosition(), baseBarOffset(), baselineBarHeight(), baselineBarAnchor(), baselineBarPosition(), baselineBarOffset(), parentBarHeight(), parentBarAnchor(), parentBarPosition(), parentBarOffset(), progressBarHeight(), progressBarAnchor(), progressBarPosition(), progressBarOffset(), milestoneHeight(), milestoneAnchor(), milestonePosition(), milestoneOffset().

Node.js Server-side Rendering
No Data Label Feature
No Data Label Feature is an API designed to notify the chart viewer that data is not available. Data can be missing due to its absence by default or if it has been removed by means of the Data Updating API, Exclude Data Point feature, or through the interactivity.
- Check out No Data Label in the Documentation.
CSV/Excel Export Reworked
By popular demand, we've remastered the algorithm for preparing CSV/Excel data for charts. Now it takes into account the chart type specific features and allows you to use multiple data sets for different series.
- Check out Data Export in the Documentation.
Context Menu Customization API
We've significantly simplified the process of the context menu customization. Now each item of the context menu is assigned with an ID that can be called to access the corresponding fields and settings as well as to add custom ones. We've also added the option to localize the context menu.

General API Improvements

Timeline Labels Settings
Gantt Timeline text formatting properties are now flexible to the greatest possible extent. To achieve that, we've added the following methods: baseLabels(), baselineLabels(), parentLabels(), milestoneLabels(), progressLabels(). We've also remastered method labels() so it can be utilized to set the defaults for any type of label.
