Instead of continuing the battle against spammers, we decided to close the forum for new users
and topics. But don't worry,
there are still plenty of ways to reach us. Most notably, we will move our attention to Stack Overflow,
where we will monitor questions under the tags [highcharts],
I have been working steadily on the 4.0 version since Easter, so no great updates have happened for version 3.3 lately. Except one small update, the possibility of adding a semitransparent png in an overlay without IE messing it up. Check example-no-border.html for an example of a simple Mac-style close button.
As I said one month ago, version 4.0 will probably ship in one month
Anyway, I am getting closer and I think it will not be too long until I can invite you to do beta testing. These are the main updates:
Crossfade with smooth resizing of the outlines and overlays.
Intelligent controlbar that can be placed in an overlay or on the parent page.
Add header and rewrite headers and captions to be a subset of overlays. All overlays including header and caption can now be placed outside the image, for example to the right of the image. See picture below.
Allow resizing of images.
Full support for image maps through an option in the Configurator.
