yWorks releases version 2.1 of yFiles for HTML!
This new version adds WebGL as a third rendering option, which allows rendering of very large graphs with very good performance. The new additional packaging of the library as ES6 modules makes working with it in your web projects even easier. New rendering order policies improve perception of labels and ports and hierarchic nesting.
The new version also brings user experience improvements for easier diagram interaction on touch devices and adds new support for an intuitive lasso selection gesture.
The new Tree Map layout algorithm and the Tabular layout style make it easy to generate tree maps and simple row/column arrangements, respectively. The Orthogonal layout algorithm has been significantly improved to produce much more compact diagrams with less crossings and shorter edges. New support for regular substructures like trees, chains, and cycles has been added.
New support in the Hierarchic layout algorithm allows to arrange user-defined sub-components of a diagram using different layout algorithms to emphasize special sub-structures.
