SciChart WPF Chart v3.3 Build 5909 Released
Posted by Andrew on 03 March 2015 10:07 AM

We are pleased to announce a Minor update to SciChart High Performance WPF Charts

v3.3 Build 5909 contains many fixes that you have reported over the last few weeks. Please take a look at the release notes below.

This release contains minor new features, should be backward compatible to SciChart v3.2.x, and it is safe and recommended to upgrade.

It is recommended to use the Installer to update, not our NuGet feed, as several additions have been made to the installer, including packaging of DirectX dependencies and Licensing Wizard proxy server detection/settings improvements.

What’s New in v3.3.0.5909

New/Improved

  • SC-2557 Licensing Wizard now auto-detects proxy and uses port 80 for HTTP licensing communications.Licensing Wizard also shows a licensing server heartbeat, making for much easier licensing & activation when behind a corporate proxy or firewall.
  • SC-2562 Licensing Wizard allows entering of proxy credentials where auto-detection fails.In our BETA testing, the Licensing Wizard improvements raise the percentage of customers who can connect to our licensing server from 75% to 99%.

    NOTE: You should not need to reactivate if you have activated with v3.2. If the Licensing Wizard reports invalid license, please contact us. 

  • SC-2541 Installer now silently installs the DirectX Runtime (D3DX9_43.dll and D3DX10_43.dll) during the SciChart install process. All developer PCs will have the correct DirectX dependencies. See Creating and Deploying Applications with the Direct3D10RenderSurface for more information.
  • DirectX runtime (2.7MByte) is included in the installer so you can redistribute it with your applications in accordance with the Microsoft DirectX Runtime EULA.Updated instructions on the website for redistributing applications with DirectX

    DirectX Dependencies are now silently installed with SciChart v3.3+

  • SC-2538 Direct3D10RenderSurface now works over Remote Desktop, using an alternative to D3DImage which composites the DirectX scene with WPF in a remote-desktop friendly way. OH YEAH!

    DirectX Renderer now works over Remote Desktop plus any other improvements (Click to View)

  • SC-2552 Add support of PaletteProvider for StackedColumns ( added usage of PaletteProvider into StackedColumnsWrapper )
  • SC-1908 Warning to user if data is Unsorted, as unsorted data in SciChart is detrimental to performance. Available when setting DataSeries.AcceptsUnsortedData = false. Default is true for backwards compatibility.Unsorted data is a complete performance killer to SciChart. We would recommend you switch this flag on, and then inform us if you see any exceptions in DataSeries.Append.

Fixes

  • SC-2521 Fixed several performance issues related to FIFO Series incorrectly detecting data was unsorted when data appended and capacity exceeded.
  • SC-2537 Direct3D10CompatibilityHelper.HasDirectX10CompatibleGPU was reporting incorrect results when DirectX11 was installed but GPU only supported DirectX9.This version of SciChart now correctly detects if DirectX is supported and falls back to software if not.
  • SC-2559 DirectX using alternative method to flush the device to fix dropped frames / flicker in some older computers
  • SC-2546 DirectX – surface doesn’t render after its parent has been changed
  • SC-2542 NullReferenceException in LegendModifier if RenderableSeries collection == null
  • SC-2483 DirectX – fixed gradient direction flipped relative to software renderers when Gradient Brush used
  • SC-2556 VerticalLineAnnotation throws in BaseRenderableSeries.HitTest if X1 set to DateTime.MinValue
  • SC-2555 VerticalLineAnnotation crash after VerticalSliceModifier detached and parent surface null and VerticalLineAnnotation.X1 updated
  • SC-2554 Suppress NullReferenceException in AxisArea.Items.Remove when printing to bitmap in memory
  • SC-2549 Fixed a memory leak in CategoryIndexToDataValueConverter which occurred when annotations were added but the chart unloaded
  • SC-2547 Fixed the first axis tick dissappearing when XAxis.FlipCoordinates = true
  • SC-2545 Fixed broken IsDigital behavior for StackedMountainsSeries
  • SC-2544 Fixed a regression issue – Dashed Line rendering gets cut (curve is incorrectly drawn) when High Quality renderer is used and Stroke Dash Array used

Where to Get It

To get SciChart High Performance WPF Charts v3.3 please head over to our Downloads page, or, you can get the binaries alone at our Nightly Build page.

It is recommended to use the Installer to update, not our NuGet feed, as several additions have been made to the installer, including packaging of DirectX dependencies and Licensing Wizard proxy server detection/settings improvements.

SciChart – Seasonal Renewal Discounts
Posted by Andrew on 21 December 2014 09:44 PM

SciChart – Seasonal Renewal Discounts

It’s the time of year again when component vendors are offering discounts to new customers to gain market share!

We would like to do something slightly different this Christmas. Instead, we wish to reward our loyal, existing customers by giving a seasonal discount for renewals, upgrades and additional licenses for existing customers.

The cost of renewals, license upgrades and additional licenses has been reduced by 20% until 31st Jan 2015.

So what’s the Deal?

If you are an existing customer of SciChart, you know that to renew your subscription costs 50% of the purchase price (for 1-year subscriptions). We have temporarily reduced the renewal cost by 20% from 21st Dec 2014 until 31st Jan 2015.

For example, if your support has expired, or about to expire:

  • SciChart WPF Basic Renewal: Was $149.50 USD, now $119.80 USD
  • SciChart WPF Pro Renewal: Was $449.50 USD, now $359.60 USD
  • SciChart Source Renewal: Was $749.50 USD, now $599.60 USD

Adding New Licenses? That’s Reduced Too!

If you currently have or had SciChart licenses in 2014 and you wish to add new SciChart licenses, then we are pleased to offer you 20% off the list price.

To take advantage of this additional license offer, please contact sales with your Order ID and let us know what you need.

It doesn’t get much better than that! Just for a moment consider what we’ve done in a year and you’ll see adding a further year to your support/updates subscription makes great sense!

View our Release Notes and Update Cadence.

Offer Expiration and Terms

  • This offer is only valid from 21st Dec 2014 until 31st Jan 2015, on renewals, upgrades and additional licenses for existing customers who have purchased or have support-expired in 2014.
  • Please see our renewals policy for FAQ on renewals.
  • Depending on whether you are support-expired or in support, we will calculate your new support expiry date as follows:
    1. For renewals, the support expiry date is +90 days (SciChart Basic) or +365 days (SciChart Professional, Source Code) from the last support-expiry date.
    2. For additional purchases, the support-expiry may be recalculated / weighted if you have other licenses that are still active.

Best regards,
[SciChart Sales]

Once we get the feedback that the new licensing mechanism works, we will polish it up and package the full release. If we don’t get any feedback, we will cry, and be very very upset…

Licensing Amnesty – Special Offer!

SciChart is licensed per-developer. Our terms & conditions haven’t changed, but in v3.2, our licensing mechanism has changed.

As of SciChart v3.2 anyone who compiles and debugs code that references SciChart DLLs will be required to one-time activate the license against our licensing server.

Only developers need to be activated. The definition of developer is here. Testers (who just run the code) and build servers are exempt. If you don’t activate, you won’t be able to work with SciChart v3.2 inside Visual Studio. Runtime users are unaffected (we still have Royalty free redistribution, perpetual licensing).

Discounts for adding more licenses

If you are an existing customer of SciChart and you would like to add more licenses, we will be happy to give you a loyalty discount on the list price. Please contact-sales with your current SciChart OrderID, how many licenses you need and we will get back to you asap.

 


 

Got Feedback?

We really need to know if our new licensing mechanism works behind corporate firewalls and around the internet. If you install it, try to activate using your serial key, and let us know how successful it was. You can see full instructions at www.scichart.com/licensing-scichart/. If you don’t have a serial key and you think you should, get in contact and we’ll sort it out.

Best regards,
[SciChart Team]
