Welcome to Goat 1000 - this is where you'll find some of the bits and pieces of software that I cobble together for fun. Please feel free to download them and try them out. All this stuff is freeware, no guarantee that it will do anything, etc. (though if it does fail to do anything, please let me know!)
SVGGraph 3.1 adds a few new things, the most significant being support for
subgraphs, something that should make the
EmptyGraph a bit more
Subgraphs are basically entire graphs drawn on top of a parent graph. They can inherit the parent graph's settings, or have their own settings. Likewise, they can inherit the colours or have their own colour set. They don't inherit data values or lists of links though, because each graph can deal with its data in very different ways.
JPEG Saver 5.3 is a strange update, adding something I really didn't want to do. For several years various JPEG Saver functions haven't worked well, and it was all down to a change that Microsoft made to how screensavers work. This is going to take some explanation.
The whole reason JPEG Saver has been having trouble is a change Microsoft made in about Windows 8 that meant Windows now starts a screensaver on its own desktop. I suspect the reason behind this is security related, but it doesn't provide a lot of protection as far as I can tell. The screensaver still has access to all the user's files, but it can't directly interact with the main desktop display.
Whatever the reason for the change, it broke all the JPEG Saver features that did want to interact with the main desktop:
SVGGraph 3.0.1 is a bugfix release, but there are a lot of changes in it. Sometimes you just have to rip up the floorboards to kill that annoying insect.*

The bug that caused all these changes is a very simple one: PHP automatically converts numbers to strings using its current locale. This makes perfect sense, but it meant that running SVGGraph in a locale that uses a comma instead of a full-stop for the decimal separator produced garbled SVG output. SVG always uses a full-stop for its decimal separator, with commas or spaces used for separating values.
