KDChart application is a tool for creating business charts and is the most powerful Qt component of its kind.

Besides from having all the standard features, it also enables the developer to design and manage a large number of axes and provides sophisticated means of customization.
In addition to detailed and precisely configuring the chart layout it is possible to complement the design by adding custom rich-text boxes and/or frames to data points or to random positions.

Being extremely configurable, KDChart is also easily scalable by automatically adjusting font sizes and layout when being resized. This makes it possible to quickly and efficiently create user-friendly programs that offer the same level of functionality, or a even higher one, in Qt programs as on other platforms. It is no coincidence that the current version of the KOffice productivity suite uses our library.

Besides from various smaller fixes, code adjusting and other issues like documentation updates, the following list contains a list of bugfixes included in the KD Chart 1.1.3 release.
