KeyLines 4.0 is here

23rd January, 2018

We’re delighted to announce that KeyLines 4.0 is now available to all customers. The highlight is our new combos functionality, to eliminate chart clutter and help you navigate your biggest and most complex networks.

Combos are visual groupings of nodes, which can be styled, opened, closed, nested and moved around. It’s an intuitive new way to explore networks, without data overload.

There are several new demos to showcase the new feature, and how it can transform your KeyLines applications.

Deprecations and breaking changes

We’ve made it easier for you to find key information for each release by creating new sections on the ‘Downloads’ page: Breaking Changes and Deprecations.

We try to keep both to a minimum, but sometimes they’re necessary. Remember to take a look before upgrading to the latest version. For more about this, or anything else in this blog post, check out the Release Notes.
