LightningChart JS new release!

We have updated our product again with new features and some serious performance improvements to our already impressively powerful charting library!
Here is a summary of version 2.2.0 improvements and additions:

We have made a lot of changes for our 3D Charts!

These include major improvements for 3D Charts performance, including:

  • Major improvements to 3D Point Series and Line Series performance, over 1000 x faster than previous version, with live data!
  • 3D Box Series performance has been improved.
  • 3D Axis Tick and Gridline performance improvements.

But it’s not just about the performance in 3D charts, we also enhanced other aspects:

  • 3D Line Series visuals have been updated.
  • 3D Charts now have their own background to help distinguish the Chart area from the background.
  • 3D Charts Camera automatic fitting mode – This setting changes the camera distance to always fit the entire chart in the view.
  • 3D Charts Bounding Box style can now be changed.
