Given there are no longer any mxGraph users in active maintenance using Internet Explorer 6 or 7, we're declaring IE 6 as End of Life (EOL) for mxGraph from 31st May 2015 and IE 7 EOL as being 12th January 2016.

Internet Explorer 6 support reminder

Please remember that we will support IE 6 in mxGraph as long as there is one customer needing that support and that customer is in active maintenance.

When we have confirmed that that there are no such customers, support will be dropped and it will never be reinstated.

If you need IE 6 support and are not in active maintenance, please get in contact with us to renew.

Anyone using the hierarchical layout in either the 1.x or 2.x versions would be advised to update to the latest versions of their respective branch if you've had any performance issues with that layout. (2.4.0.3 and 1.13.0.12).

We went through a performance tuning exercise recently and achieved some useful gains. You'll notice the difference a lot more with larger graphs.

The mxGraph License version 2.0 has been released

License, not software. The 1.x license dates from 2006 and was becoming less and less suitable for modern usage of a software library

The overall effect of the new license is designed to allow and disallow roughly the same usage of the library as before, just with more precise legal language

The maintainance terms are gone as a stand-alone list and have become part of the license itself.

The "warranties" and 'liability" sections have some updates, with the inclusion of indemnification details for the first time.

New customers will have the license apply from the point they purchase. Existing customers will have the license apply from the first version released after 16th February 2014 (30 days time).

This doesn't apply to customers with bespoke licensing terms, it also doesn't apply to any versions of the software released before that date, even if downloaded after. It doesn't apply to users with academic licenses.

If any customer feels that the new license causes issues with a use case that was permitted before, please contact us, that is not the intention.

mxGraph maintenance renewal

We previously allowed maintenance on mxGraph to lapse for periods and you still be able to later renew it. The industry standard is to require continuous maintenance and if you lapse to have to make up all intervening payments.

The problem with our model comes when customers are lapsed for 6+ years and then want to renew to perform an update, it's not fair on the majority of our customers that paid every year without fail.

So, from 1st July 2014, we will require that maintenance is continuous from the date of licensing in order to renew. Any lapsed periods after that date will need to be back-paid in full in order to renew. The will apply to maintenance purchased from 1st July 2013 (i.e that needs to renew by 1st July 2014).

Maintenance is still optional, you don't have to take it and you have a perpetual license to use the last software version you had access to under your maintenance agreement.

With mxGraph 2.0, we also have a new download system in place. A few customers have reported access issues.

If you encounter any problems, apologies, please contact us on the support email address and we'll resolve them as a top priority.

mxGraph 2.4.1.0 has been released

Of note, a mxPrintPreview.printBackgroundImage switch has been added. It defaults to false to maintain legacy behaviour. Switching it on will add any background raster or vector to the print preview page.

There a simple map overlay example using Google Maps http://jgraph.github.io/mxgraph/javascript/examples/map.html .
It's a view-only example for now, but gives a basic idea for domains such as network displays.

Some of you in maintenance will have received emails asking what the current minimum version if Internet Explorer you support is.

We do track what is the minimum version of IE we need to support is as much as we can. But, if there is a minimum version you need you must:

1) Stay in maintenance and
2) Tell us about it.

As long as one customer in maintenance requires a supported version, we won't drop support for it, but please ensure you communicate your requirements.

IE 8 support isn't in question for a long, long time, you don't need to tell us about that. What we're currently interested in is those of you supporting IE 6 and 7.

+Pete Jones Thanks for the feedback. We're looking at something around 2019 for IE 6 EOL based on our data, we'll post something formal when we've decided properly.

mxGraph 2.1 has been released. 2.1 includes a large number of improvements to the touch support in mxGraph. The changes have been in place on draw.io for some time and no errors are logging.

The devices we used for testing the improvements were iPad 1,2 and 3, Android 4.2.x tablet and phones, Windows 8 touch enabled laptop, Surface, iPhone 4 and Chromebook Pixel. Note that mxGraph does not work on Android 2.x.

The touch.html example, http://jgraph.github.io/mxgraph/javascript/examples/touch.html, demonstrates how to use the functionality in practice.

A number of other examples have been added (you can see the full list at http://jgraph.github.io/mxgraph/javascript/index.html), including a level of detail example and a group cell changing its style based on its collapsed/expanded state.

mxGraph version 2 has been released

Some of you might have noticed us quietly releasing mxGraph 2.0. v2 includes significant re-writes of the rendering functionality. We've also focused on creating a minimum API change across the major version numbers. Most of you should see zero to 30 minutes worth of effort to move from 1.13 to 2.0.

There are significant performance improvements on Internet Explorer 8 in standards mode (certain test cases showing up to x10 improvement). Other browsers will also see improvements in performance varying from 5%-80%.

Touch support is much improved. Upgrading to 2.0 is recommended for anyone with tablets or mobile devices as a target platform.

Previously, implementing new vertex shapes in JS often required custom code sections for SVG and VML. There is a new, complete, canvas API abstraction that covers both vector systems through the one API. You can programmatically implement far more complex shapes more easily, plus the implementation can be extended for any new underlying technology as required (HTML5 canvas, for example), without you having to change your code.

Image export is far more consistent with the view in JavaScript on the client. Graphical displays are now described in raw graphics primitives, rather than mxGraph specific schema. This provides better consistency when rendering across different technologies.

Lastly, interactive vertex rotation is added in mxGraph 2.0. You can see this functionality in draw.io, the extra handle above selected shapes that enables you to rotate the shape at any angle.
