SVGGraph 3.11

I'm releasing version 3.11 of SVGGraph to get releases up to date with changes on GitHub. It mainly fixes things again, but there is a new graph type and a new option.

How does Bob Marley like his donuts?

Someone asked for an exploded donut graph, so I made one. It turned out that it didn't quite produce the effect that the user wanted, so I ended up adding a donut_slice_gap option to get the similar but different effect you see on the right in the example below.

ExplodedDonutGraph and donut_slice_gap

What's the difference? A exploded graph shifts the slices away from the centre point, but the donut_slice_gap option reduces the size of each slice slightly without moving it.

JPEG Saver 5.18

Here is JPEG Saver 5.18 with the next big change I had planned, which actually went quite smoothly. I wasn't expecting it to be difficult, but it is nice when things just work. This change is quite an obvious one so I've stuck in an image of what's new here:

Main config tab The main tab, now with added space

Yes, the list of transitions is gone from the main tab - I needed to add in some more controls, and I couldn't cram them in any more. The “Transitions” button takes you to a new dialog where you can fiddle about with the transitions, and underneath the button is something new.

Transition presets

A lot of what I was working on for version 5.17 was code to support presets of different types, and as a result of that you can now save your transition settings and reload them again quickly from the main tab. I've included a list of default presets that might be handy, or you could just delete them all and make your own. To do that you will need to use the transitions dialog...

JPEG Saver 5.17

The first of the big changes I wanted to get done is included in version 5.17 of JPEG Saver. Unfortunately it is mostly internal, so I'll lead with something a bit more visible.

Folder sets

This has been on the to-do list for a very long time, and it is actually one of the first things I entered into my issue tracking system back in 2016. Now when you enter the folders tab on the config dialog you will see a new box marked “Folder set” along with a button next to it called “Set”

Together these work a lot like the presets in the filters dialog - you can save, load, delete and clear the sets, either replacing the main folders list or appending to it.
