Even during holidays our team can’t stop improving our WPF charts. We are pleased to announce that SciChart WPF v4.2.1 has now been released!
This release includes some critical bug fixes, including two memory leaks in SciChart 3D, as well as some minor features requested by our users over the past few weeks.
It is strongly advised for users of SciChart v4.x to upgrade to this version, which is a drop-in replacement.
