So, what else are we working on?
We will be updating you soon with our roadmap for SciChart v2.5 (due before end of the year) and SciChart v3.0 (Due in 2014). We don’t want to give too much away at this time but we’re excited to be continually innovating and improving our charting product and we aim to deliver many of the recurrent feature requests that you have been asking for.
We are also working towards an iterative re-write of the core of SciChart to improve overall speed, with a bold target. As always we prioritise based on user-input so if you have a request for us, or wish to steer our development direction, do let us know.
Also there are many exciting changes coming to the website soon, which will enable you to get the excellent support you have come to expect in a more efficient package for us to administer it.
More to be announced soon!
