Here at ShinobiHQ we have been slaving over a hot IDE getting
our next component releases ready and we're happy to announce that
the first of these are ready to go! We've got some really
exciting stuff lined up for these releases (and beyond!) so let's
take a quick tour.
Version 2.1 of ShinobiCharts really packs a punch...well, we
think so anyway!
iOS6 and iPhone 5 Support
We now have official iOS6 support, including support for the
iPhone 5's new CPU architecture armv7s. You'll also notice
that the warnings present in our preliminary iOS6 support have gone
too. Happy days!
MonoTouch Support (Premium Edition only)
It's clear from the influx of queries that you
have been waiting for this for a while now. Well wait no
more! ShinobiCharts Premium Edition now includes MonoTouch
bindings. What's more, it's all bundled in one component so
you get the choice of whether to use MonoTouch or the native
Objective-C library - at no extra cost.
New Fresh Look and Feel
If you take a look at our new sample apps or any app using
ShinobiCharts for that matter you'll almost certainly notice our
new look and feel. We had a couple people comment that the
previous look of the charts could be improved and we
listened. We went back to the drawing board and came up with
a much fresher, brighter and more vibrant look. Don't worry
though, the previous look is still there as a theme, so it's easy
to revert back if you preferred the progoma; styling.
For many use-cases it's nice to be able to exclude part of your
axis. For example, if you're writing a trading app, you want
to be able to exclude non-trading hours so you don't get flat spots
or periods of noise in your data. That's where these axes
come in. Just define the individual or repeating exclusions
and, whoosh, like that…they're gone, faster than you can say
iOS6 and iPhone 5 Support
Yep, that's right ShinobiGrids got the upgrade to iOS6 too so
now you can put that new iPhone5 A6 processor and big screen to
good use showing all the data you want.
Of course, we did bindings for ShinobiGrids
too. Again, it's all included in the standard purchase
price. You get both the native controls and the MonoTouch
bindings in one package. Oh yeah!
How do you get it?
If you're an existing customer who purchased support with your
product, just get in
touch and we'll send it your way as soon as we can.
Otherwise, why not grab an updated trial and see what you
think of the new functionality?
We've included a change log of all the changes at the end of
this post so feel free to peruse at your leisure, but first…
Our pipeline is packed, I can tell you that. We're working
on a big feature release for ShinobiGrids, our new product
ShinobiEssentials and a whole new raft of interactive features for
our charts component. We'll have more news on those things in
the coming weeks so make sure you keep an eye on our blog and follow us on
As always if you have feature requests or things you'd like to see,
send them along and
we'll make sure they get added to our todo list.
