On behalf of the Bokeh team, I am very happy to announce the release of Bokeh version 0.7!
Bokeh is a Python library for visualizing large and realtime datasets on the web.
Its goal is to provide to developers (and domain experts) with capabilities to easily create novel and powerful visualizations that extract insight from local or remote (possibly large) data sets, and to easily publish those visualization to the web for others to explore and interact with.
This release includes many major new features:
IPython widgets and animations without a Bokeh server
Touch UI working for tools on mobile devices
Vastly improved linked data table
More new (and improving) bokeh.charts (high level charting interface)
Color mappers on the python side
Many new tools: lasso, poly, and point selection, crosshair inspector
Check our blog post: http://continuum.io/blog/bokeh-0.7, to watch some of these tools in action! And you can also see the CHANGELOG for full details.
We would like to mention that the Github Organization for Bokeh is growing! This organization was already home to bokeh-scala and bokeh.jl, and now the Bokeh project itself has a new home there as well, located at https://github.com/bokeh/bokeh. Anyone interested in developing new language bindings for Bokeh is encouraged to contact us about hosting your project under this organization.
Also, the release of Bokeh 0.8 should happen in early 2015. Some notable features we intend to work on are:
Simplifying production and multi-user Bokeh server deployments
Colorbar axis and axis location inspectors
Better support for maps and projections
As usual, don’t forget to check out the full documentation, interactive gallery, and tutorial at
as well as the Bokeh IPython notebook nbviewer index (including all the tutorials) at:
