We’re pleased to announce that KeyLines 3.3 is available now to all KeyLines customers and evaluators. It’s a big release, with new features, fixes and improvements across the SDK.
We’re pleased to announce KeyLines now supports self-linking nodes – our most requested feature yet! This is currently a Beta feature, so we welcome your feedback to help us make improvements.
Our WebGL renderer offers unparalleled visualization performance for your largest datasets. We’re excited to see this unique bit of functionality become an established feature of the KeyLines toolkit.
We’ve also improved how the WebGL renderer works, resulting in smoother graphics, more stable experience, and support for right-to-left writing systems.
Many of you have asked how to integrate KeyLines with Elasticsearch – Elastic’s search engine. A new demo shows how to use REST queries to retrieve and explore data from your Elasticsearch instance, and display it in KeyLines.
Font icons are a great way to quickly create a cohesive and easy to read visualization, but often a single library doesn’t have the full range of icons you need. KeyLines now allows you to incorporate font icons from multiple families in a single chart.
We’ve also improved how font icons are displayed, so they automatically fit better inside the selection boundary, with a new imageAlignment option for further tweaks.
We’ve enhanced two of our graph algorithms to give you more control over their behavior:
We’ve also moved eigenCentrality, pageRank and cluster graph functions out of Beta, so they’re now established features of KeyLines.
KeyLines 3.3 includes a number of big changes to make the developer experience faster and simpler. These are in Beta, so we welcome your feedback!
We’ve also improved navigation and added clearer titles and descriptions on the Demos page, so it’s easier to find the information you need.
