Flot 0.2 released!

I've released a new version of Flot. The API is now documented and legends have a background. And you can get the whole package as a zip/tarball. See the changes.

Lots of people are asking for pie charts. And some people have difficulty seeing the charts in IE 6. Which is really unfortunate because I can't reproduce it myself. All the machines with IE 6 I have access to render them fine. It's probably something silly, but it's going to take a bit of debugging to find it.

My plans for the near future mostly deal with getting proper support for time series and some of the other interactive stuff if I can squeeze it in. And get a forum or mailing list up running.

If you have a public application of Flot online, I'd like to hear about it, I intend to compile a list of real-world examples.


  1. Hello,

    first let me state the obvious: you, the creators of flot, are little gods.

    I just tested the examples in konqueror 3.5.8, and this browser was not able to display anything, albeit there were no error messages.
    In the upcoming konqueror for kde4 everything rendered correctly though, I suppose that it also works in safari, since those browser share more or less the same engine.
    It might not be that important to support a fringe group browser like konqueror, but it'd still interesting be to know why it doesn't work.


  2. Congrats on the release.

  3. Thanks. :-)

    About Konqueror: the problem is probably that the browser needs to support the canvas tag. It was my impression that Konqueror did that because of Webkit. But maybe they've only merged the support in the latest branch.

  4. wonderful contribution to human beings.
