After long development, the new version of Incanter has been released to clojars. This version contains a lot of changes, including following:
- For matrix operations the clatrix/jblas libraries are used – this should greatly improve performance (but you may need to install libgfortran3 package on Linux 64-bit. See jblas wiki for more information)
- Interpolation functions were added to incanter-core module
- You can save charts in SVG format by using the new incanter-svg module
- The incanter-chart module was extended with support for scatter plots
- Many bugfixes
Full list of changes could be found in changelog. There are 2 open issues that could affect your use of Incanter, please read about them in changelog. We’ll try to address them in the next release.
I want to say “Thank You!” to all people who provided new functionality, fixed the bugs, filed the issues, and participated in discussions in mailing list. Without you, this release simply didn’t happen!
The next steps in development will happen in direction of release 2.0, where the main change will be use of core.matrix library for all matrix operations.
