Roadmap for e!Sankey 1.0
« on: December 22, 2006, 02:10 PM »
With e!Sankey 0.9 we have presented an easy-to-use software tool for drawing appealing Sankey diagrams. The e!Sankey development at ifu Hamburg continues, and we are currently working on the following functions and features of the version e!Sankey 1.0:

* Improving usability of controls, especially color selection dialogs and combo boxes
* Multi selection of entries
* Additional drag & drop functionality for entries
* Expanding Undo/Redo to additional functions
* Orthogonal arrow routing (improved handling, adding of waypoints, better control of routing direction)
* Improvement of arrow labels: display options for sums and/or flow quantities without flow names
* Legend for Sankey diagram
* Clipart gallery for process nodes
* Scale indicators for Sankey diagram
* One joint arrow head for several arrows arriving at a process
* Optional wider arrow heads for very thin arrows
* Optimization and improved handling of arrow points
* Known issue: Marked arrow continue marked when using copy&paste with EMF format
* Known issue #2917: exception on deleting flow from copied arrow
* Known issue #2918: text labels on delete arrow undo
* Improve performance on startup and file loading
* Optimization of the update mechanism for e!Sankey
* Expand e!Sankey help file

Since all software products of ifu Hamburg are extensively tested before they are released, we are now planning to finish e!Sankey 1.0 at the end of January, and to provide it to our users for download on February 15, 2007.

For the further development of e!Sankey 2.0 there is an internal planning and some very precise ideas what features will be included in such a version. We invite you to submit your ideas and enhancement wishes in the Feature Request Forum. We will present our roadmap for e!Sankey 2.0 in a timely manner here in this board.
