Hack-at-it 2006

Aug 3-5 the GGobi developers got together in Seattle, WA for the second hack-at-it. The setting was a rented house, with high speed internet and a lovely garden in which to work and talk.

The main topic of this year's hack-at-it was the ggobi pipeline. Plans were laid to restructure the backbone of the software to make it more extensible, and programmable from R. Most of this will be invisible to the user, but the results will be obvious in new graphics types and applications running from R.

GGobi 2.1.4 released

We are pleased to announce the release of GGobi 2.1.4. This is another bug fix release, fixing a few annoying crasher bugs, as well some xml and linking bugs. It is available for download now from

This version offers improved compatibility with rggobi and we hope to release a new version of rggobi with many new features very soon. We are also working on an easy mac installer, which hopefully will be ready in the next couple of weeks.

If you do encounter any problems please email the mailing list - your feedback is appreciated.
