SciChart® the market leader in Fast WPF Charts, WPF 3D Charts, and now iOS Charting & Android Chart Components

We are pleased to announce a Stability Update to the SciChart WPF SDK v4.

Since the release of v4 we’ve released a number of patches 4.0.1, 4.0.2, 4.0.3 which address critical issues such as crash or compatibility bugs in our DirectX powered 2D & 3D charts. It is therefore recommended for all users of SciChart WPF v4 to update, especially if you have experienced one or more crash bugs in SciChart 3D since migrating to v4.

If you are using SciChart v4.x then this update is a drop-in replacement. If you are still using SciChart v3.6.1 we invite you to take a look at SciChart v4 and our migration guide. We’ve made it easier than ever to jump to the latest major version!
