ggplot2 ------------------------------------------------------------

ggplot2 is a plotting system for R, based on the grammar of graphics, which tries to take the good parts of base and lattice graphics and avoid bad parts. It takes care of many of the fiddly details that make plotting a hassle (like drawing legends) as well as providing a powerful model of graphics that makes it easy to produce complex multi-layered graphics.

ggplot 0.5.7

New geoms, scales and aesthetics

Improved options handling

These changes mean that you can modify plot options in the same way that you modify all other aspects of the plot, e.g. qplot(mpg, wt, data=mptcars) + opts(title = "Fuel economy vs weight")

Improved documentation

Improved map projections (with coord_map)

If you're using ggplot to draw maps and have thought of other features that would make your life easier, please let me know.

Bug fixes

Minor aesthetic improvements

See CHANGELOG for changes in previous versions
