The February release of KeyLines has landed. KeyLines 4.1 is now available to all KeyLines customers and evaluators, with some slick enhancements you can start using right away.
More flexible glyphs
Glyphs are a great way to enhance nodes and links with additional information.
Quite a few of you asked for the ability to add more glyphs to your nodes. Now you can. As many as you like, wherever you like. It’s a new way to represent the data attributes your users need to see.
Get started with our toolkits
Your KeyLines app works best when it’s accessible to as many people as possible. The new keyboard shortcuts demo shows how to bind events to control KeyLines from the keyboard, making graph visualization possible without a mouse or touchscreen.
It also shows how to combine keyboard and mouse interactions for faster chart interactions. For example, holding down the command key while dragging to pan the chart instead of selecting nodes.
Donuts are a great way to convey data values quickly. We’ve updated our Analyse Email Traffic demo to show how to enhance donuts with tooltips and segment highlighting, giving more detailed data insight, faster.
Thanks to everyone who gave feedback on KeyLines’ new combos. We’ve improved our documentation to answer some of your commonly asked questions. Combos Concepts explains some of the ‘under the hood’ workings of KeyLines to help you get to grips with the new functionality quickly.
We’ve improved the way KeyLines handles charts with lots of disconnected networks. You’ll find layouts of this kind of data are much faster than before.
