Unreleased {#Unreleased}

  • CairoMakie: Add argument pdf_version to restrict the PDF version when saving a figure as a PDF #3845.

0.21.2 - 2024-05-22 {#0.21.2-2024-05-22}

  • Added cycle to general attribute allowlist so that it works also with plot types that don't set one in their theme #3879.

0.21.1 - 2024-05-21 {#0.21.1-2024-05-21}

  • boundingbox now relies on apply_transform(transform, data_limits(plot)) rather than transforming the corner points of the bounding box #3856.

  • Adjusted Axis limits to consider transformations more consistently #3864.

  • Fix problems with incorrectly disabled attributes in recipes #3870, #3866.

  • Fix RPRMakie with Material #3872.

  • Support the loop option in html video output #3697.

0.21.0 - 2024-05-08 {#0.21.0-2024-05-08}

  • Add voxels plot #3527.

  • Added supported markers hint to unsupported marker warn message #3666.

  • Fixed bug in CairoMakie line drawing when multiple successive points had the same color #3712.

  • Remove StableHashTraits in favor of calculating hashes directly with CRC32c #3667.

  • Breaking (sort of) Added a new @recipe variant which allows documenting attributes directly where they are defined and validating that all attributes are known whenever a plot is created. This is not breaking in the sense that the API changes, but user code is likely to break because of misspelled attribute names etc. that have so far gone unnoticed.

  • Add axis converts, enabling unit/categorical support and more #3226.

  • Breaking Streamlined data_limits and boundingbox #3671

    • data_limits now only considers plot positions, completely ignoring transformations

    • boundingbox(p::Text) is deprecated in favor of boundingbox(p::Text, p.markerspace[]). The more internal methods use string_boundingbox(p). #3723

    • boundingbox overwrites must now include a secondary space argument to work boundingbox(plot, space::Symbol = :data) #3723

    • boundingbox now always consider transform_func and model

    • data_limits(::Scatter) and boundingbox(::Scatter) now consider marker transformations #3716

  • Breaking Improved Float64 compatability of Axis #3681

    • This added an extra conversion step which only takes effect when Float32 precision becomes relevant. In those cases code using project() functions will be wrong as the transformation is not applied. Use project(plot_or_scene, ...) or apply the conversion yourself beforehand with Makie.f32_convert(plot_or_scene, transformed_point) and use patched_model = Makie.patch_model(plot_or_scene, model).

    • Makie.to_world(point, matrix, resolution) has been deprecated in favor of Makie.to_world(scene_or_plot, point) to include float32 conversions.

  • Breaking Reworked line shaders in GLMakie and WGLMakie #3558

    • GLMakie: Removed support for per point linewidths

    • GLMakie: Adjusted dots (e.g. with linestyle = :dot) to bend across a joint

    • GLMakie: Cleaned up anti-aliasing for truncated joints

    • WGLMakie: Added support for linestyles

    • WGLMakie: Added line joints

    • WGLMakie: Added native anti-aliasing which generally improves quality but introduces outline artifacts in some cases (same as GLMakie)

    • Both: Adjusted handling of thin lines which may result in different color intensities

  • Fixed an issue with lines being drawn in the wrong direction in 3D (with perspective projection) #3651.

  • Breaking Renamed attribute rotations to rotation for scatter and meshscatter which had been inconsistent with the otherwise singular naming scheme and other plots like text #3724.

  • Fixed contourf bug where n levels would sometimes miss the uppermost value, causing gaps #3713.

  • Added scale attribute to violin #3352.

  • Use label formatter in barplot #3718.

  • Add scale_to=:flip option to hist, which flips the direction of the bars #3732

  • Fixed an issue with the texture atlas not updating in WGLMakie after display, causing new symbols to not show up #3737

  • Added linecap and joinstyle attributes for lines and linesegments. Also normalized miter_limit to 60° across all backends. #3771

0.20.10 2024-05-07 {#0.20.10-2024-05-07}

  • Added cornerradius attribute to Box for rounded corners #3346.

  • Fix grouping of a zero-height bar in barplot. Now a zero-height bar shares the same properties of the previous bar, and if the bar is the first one, its height is treated as positive if and only if there exists a bar of positive height or all bars are zero-height #3058.

  • Added a new Axis type, PolarAxis, which is an axis with a polar projection. Input is in (r, theta) coordinates and is transformed to (x, y) coordinates using the standard polar-to-cartesian transformation. Generally, its attributes are very similar to the usual Axis attributes, but x is replaced by r and y by θ. It also inherits from the theme of Axis in this manner, so should work seamlessly with Makie themes #2990.

  • Fixed a bug where a set of Axis wouldn't be correctly linked together if they were only linked in pairs instead of all at the same time #2116.

0.17.7 - 2022-06-19 {#0.17.7-2022-06-19}

  • Improved Menu performance, now it should be much harder to reach the boundary of 255 scenes in GLMakie. Menu also takes a default keyword argument now and can be scrolled if there is too little space available.

0.17.6 - 2022-06-17 {#0.17.6-2022-06-17}

  • EXPERIMENTAL: Added support for multiple windows in GLMakie through display(GLMakie.Screen(), figure_or_scene) #1771.

  • Added support for RGB matrices in heatmap with GLMakie #2036

  • Textbox doesn't defocus anymore on trying to submit invalid input #2041.

  • text now takes the position as the first argument(s) like scatter and most other plotting functions, it is invoked text(x, y, [z], text = "text"). Because it is now of conversion type PointBased, the positions can be given in all the usual different ways which are implemented as conversion methods. All old invocation styles such as text("text", position = Point(x, y)) still work to maintain backwards compatibility #2020.

0.17.5 - 2022-06-10 {#0.17.5-2022-06-10}

  • Fixed a regression with linkaxes! #2039.

0.17.4 - 2022-06-09 {#0.17.4-2022-06-09}

  • The functions hlines!, vlines!, hspan!, vspan! and abline! were reimplemented as recipes. This allows using them without an Axis argument in first position and also as visuals in AlgebraOfGraphics.jl. Also, abline! is now called ablines! for consistency, abline! is still exported but deprecated and will be removed in the future. #2023.

  • Added rainclouds and rainclouds! #1725.

  • Improve CairoMakie performance #1964 #1981.

  • Interpolate colormap correctly #1973.

  • Fix picking #1993.

  • Improve compile time latency #1968 #2000.

  • Fix multi poly with rects #1999.

  • Respect scale and nonlinear values in PlotUtils cgrads #1979.

  • Fix CairoMakie heatmap filtering #1828.

  • Remove GLVisualize and MakieLayout module #2007 #2008.

  • Add linestyle and default to extrema(z) for contour, remove bitrotten fillrange #2008.

0.17.3 - 2022-05-20 {#0.17.3-2022-05-20}

  • Switched to MathTeXEngine v0.4, which improves the look of LaTeXStrings #1952.

  • Added subtitle capability to Axis #1859.

  • Fixed a bug where scaled colormaps constructed using Makie.cgrad were not interpreted correctly.

0.17.2 - 2022-05-16 {#0.17.2-2022-05-16}

  • Changed the default font from Dejavu Sans to TeX Gyre Heros Makie which is the same as TeX Gyre Heros with slightly decreased descenders and ascenders. Decreasing those metrics reduced unnecessary whitespace and alignment issues. Four fonts in total were added, the styles Regular, Bold, Italic and Bold Italic. Also changed Axis, Axis3 and Legend attributes titlefont to TeX Gyre Heros Makie Bold in order to separate it better from axis labels in multifacet arrangements #1897.

0.17.1 - 2022-05-13 {#0.17.1-2022-05-13}

  • Added word wrapping. In Label, word_wrap = true causes it to use the suggested width and wrap text to fit. In text, word_wrap_width > 0 can be used to set a pixel unit line width. Any word (anything between two spaces without a newline) that goes beyond this width gets a newline inserted before it #1819.

  • Improved Axis3's interactive performance #1835.

  • Fixed errors in GLMakie's scatter implementation when markers are given as images. #1917.

  • Removed some method ambiguities introduced in v0.17 #1922.

  • Add an empty default label, "", to each slider that doesn't have a label in SliderGrid #1888.

0.17.0 - 2022-05-05 {#0.17.0-2022-05-05}

  • Breaking Added space as a generic attribute to switch between data, pixel, relative and clip space for positions. space in text has been renamed to markerspace because of this. Pixel and SceneSpace are no longer valid inputs for space or markerspace #1596.

  • Breaking Deprecated mouse_selection(scene) for pick(scene).

  • Breaking Bumped GridLayoutBase version to v0.7, which introduced offset layouts. Now, indexing into row 0 doesn't create a new row 1, but a new row 0, so that all previous content positions stay the same. This makes building complex layouts order-independent #1704.

  • Breaking deprecate to_colormap(cmap, ncolors) in favor of categorical_colors(cmap, ncolors) and resample_cmap(cmap, ncolors) #1901 #1723.

  • Added empty!(fig) and changed empty!(scene) to remove all child plots without detaching windows #1818.

  • Switched to erroring instead of warning for deprecated events mousebuttons, keyboardbuttons and mousedrag.

  • Layoutable was renamed to Block and the infrastructure changed such that attributes are fixed fields and each block has its own Scene for better encapsulation #1796.

  • Added SliderGrid block which replaces the deprecated labelslider! and labelslidergrid! functions #1796.

  • The default anti-aliasing method can now be set in CairoMakie.activate! using the antialias keyword. Available options are CairoMakie.Cairo.ANTIALIAS_* #1875.

  • Added ability to rasterize a plots in CairoMakie vector graphics if plt.rasterize = true or plt.rasterize = scale::Int #1872.

  • Fixed segfaults in streamplot_impl on Mac M1 #1830.

  • Set the Cairo miter limit to mimic GLMakie behaviour #1844.

  • Fixed a method ambiguity in rotatedrect #1846.

  • Allow weights in statistical recipes #1816.

  • Fixed manual cycling of plot attributes #1873.

  • Fixed type constraints in ticklabelalign attributes #1882.

0.16.4 - 2022-02-16 {#0.16.4-2022-02-16}

  • Fixed WGLMakie performance bug and added option to set fps via WGLMakie.activate!(fps=30).

  • Implemented nan_color, lowclip, highclip for image(::Matrix{Float}) in shader.

  • Cleaned up mesh shader and implemented nan_color, lowclip, highclip for mesh(m; color::Matrix{Float}) on the shader.

  • Allowed GLMakie.Buffer GLMakie.Sampler to be used in GeometryBasics.Mesh to partially update parts of a mesh/texture and different interpolation and clamping modes for the texture.

0.16.0 - 2022-01-07 {#0.16.0-2022-01-07}

  • Breaking Removed Node alias #1307, #1393. To upgrade, simply replace all occurrences of Node with Observable.

  • Breaking Cleaned up Scene type #1192, #1393. The Scene() constructor doesn't create any axes or limits anymore. All keywords like raw, show_axis have been removed. A scene now always works like it did when using the deprecated raw=true. All the high level functionality like showing an axis and adding a 3d camera has been moved to LScene. See the new Scene tutorial for more info:

  • Breaking Lights got moved to Scene, see the lighting docs and RPRMakie examples.

  • Added ECDF plot #1310.

  • Added Order Independent Transparency to GLMakie #1418, #1506. This type of transparency is now used with transpareny = true. The old transparency handling is available with transparency = false.

  • Fixed blurry text in GLMakie and WGLMakie #1494.

  • Introduced a new experimental backend for ray tracing: RPRMakie.

  • Added the Cycled type, which can be used to select the i-th value from the current cycler for a specific attribute #1248.

  • The plot function scatterlines now uses color as markercolor if markercolor is automatic. Also, cycling of the color attribute is enabled #1463.

  • Added the function resize_to_layout!, which allows to resize a Figure so that it contains its top GridLayout without additional whitespace or clipping #1438.

  • Cleaned up lighting in 3D contours and isosurfaces #1434.

  • Adjusted attributes of volumeslices to follow the normal structure #1404. This allows you to adjust attributes like colormap without going through nested attributes.

  • Added depth to 3D contours and isosurfaces #1395, #1393. This allows them to intersect correctly with other 3D objects.

  • Restricted 3D scene camera to one scene #1394, #1393. This fixes issues with multiple scenes fighting over events consumed by the camera. You can select a scene by cleaning on it.

  • Added depth shift attribute for GLMakie and WGLMakie #1382, #1393. This can be used to adjust render order similar to overdraw.

  • Simplified automatic width computation in barplots #1223, #1393. If no width attribute is passed, the default width is computed as the minimum difference between consecutive x positions. Gap between bars are given by the (multiplicative) gap attribute. The actual bar width equals width * (1 - gap).

  • Added logical expressions for ispressed #1222, #1393. This moves a lot of control over hotkeys towards the user. With these changes one can now set a hotkey to trigger on any or no key, collections of keys and logical combinations of keys (i.e. "A is pressed and B is not pressed").

  • Fixed issues with Menu render order #1411.

  • Added label_rotation to barplot #1401.

  • Fixed issue where pixelcam! does not remove controls from other cameras #1504.

  • Added conversion for OffsetArrays #1260.

  • The qqplot qqline options were changed to :identity, :fit, :fitrobust and :none (the default) #1563. Fixed numeric error due to double computation of quantiles when fitting qqline. Deprecated plot(q::QQPair) method as it does not have enough information for correct qqline fit.

All other changes are collected in this PR and in the release notes.

0.15.3 - 2021-10-16 {#0.15.3-2021-10-16}

  • The functions labelslidergrid! and labelslider! now set fixed widths for the value column with a heuristic. It is possible now to pass Formatting.format format strings as format specifiers in addition to the previous functions.

  • Fixed 2D arrow rotations in streamplot #1352.

0.15.2 - 2021-08-26 {#0.15.2-2021-08-26}

  • Reenabled Julia 1.3 support.

  • Use MathTexEngine v0.2.

  • Depend on new GeometryBasics, which changes all the Vec/Point/Quaternion/RGB/RGBA - f0 aliases to just f. For example, Vec2f0 is changed to Vec2f. Old aliases are still exported, but deprecated and will be removed in the next breaking release. For more details and an upgrade script, visit GeometryBasics#97.

  • Added hspan! and vspan! functions #1264.

0.15.1 - 2021-08-21 {#0.15.1-2021-08-21}

  • Switched documentation framework to Franklin.jl.

  • Added a specialization for volumeslices to DataInspector.

  • Fixed 1 element hist #1238 and make it easier to move hist #1150.

0.15.0 - 2021-07-15 {#0.15.0-2021-07-15}

  • LaTeXStrings can now be used as input to text and therefore as labels for Axis, Legend, or other comparable objects. Mathematical expressions are typeset using MathTeXEngine.jl which offers a fast approximation of LaTeX typesetting #1022.

  • Added Symlog10 and pseudolog10 axis scales for log scale approximations that work with zero and negative values #1109.

  • Colorbar limits can now be passed as the attribute colorrange similar to plots #1066.

  • Added the option to pass three vectors to heatmaps and other plots using SurfaceLike conversion #1101.

  • Added stairs plot recipe #1086.

  • Breaking Removed FigurePosition and FigureSubposition types. Indexing into a Figure like fig[1, 1] now returns GridPosition and GridSubposition structs, which can be used in the same way as the types they replace. Because of an underlying change in GridLayoutBase.jl, it is now possible to do Axis(gl[1, 1]) where gl is a GridLayout that is a sublayout of a Figure's top layout #1075.

  • Bar plots and histograms have a new option for adding text labels #1069.

  • It is now possible to specify one linewidth value per segment in linesegments #992.

  • Added a new 3d camera that allows for better camera movements using keyboard and mouse #1024.

  • Fixed the application of scale transformations to surface #1070.

  • Added an option to set a custom callback function for the RectangleZoom axis interaction to enable other use cases than zooming #1104.

  • Fixed rendering of heatmaps with one or more reversed ranges in CairoMakie, as in heatmap(1:10, 10:-1:1, rand(10, 10)) #1100.

  • Fixed volume slice recipe and added docs for it #1123.
