Subject [ANN] Fins 0.1.1 released
Date Mon, 01 Sep 2003 11:37:08 GMT
Folks,

we are pleased to introduce you the 0.1.1 release of the Fins Project.

The aim of this project is to equip the Cocoon community with a set of
sitemap components able to generate professional charts in different formats
(SVG, PNG, JPEG) using the JFreeChart library.
The long-term goal is the implementation of all the chart types contained in
that library.

The project home page, kindly hosted by CocoonDev, can be found at: http://www.cocoondev.org/projects/fins.html

This release is mainly a mantainance one, anyhow, some nice festures were added:

1) Fins has been made compatible with Cocoon 2.1 and JFreeChart 0.9.11
2) Fins is now delivered as a Cocoon block  (many thanks to Daniel Fagerstrom !)
3) A new chart type ("meter") has been added
4) Some aesthetic features have been added (shaded background, label orientation, ...)
5) The input schema is now available as both XML Schema and DTD
6) Time series chart may be used used with time intervals of less than one day

One last thing: since Fins 0.1.1 works with Cocoon 2.1.x only, previous Fins version (0.1.0)
is still available... for the joy of
those laggards still using Cocoon 2.0.x ;)

Enjoy !

The Fins team.
