GoogleVis 0.5.1 was released on CRAN yesterday.

New Features


  • The help files of gvis charts no longer show all their options, instead a link to the online Google API documentation is given.
  • Updated googleVis demo
  • All googleVis output will be displayed in your default browser. In previous versions of googleVis output could also be viewed in the preview pane of RStudio. This feature is no longer available with the current version of RStudio, but is likely to be introduced again with the release of RStudio version 0.99 or higher.
I will discuss the new features in more detail at the R user group meetings in Tokyo this Thursday and in Cologne, 23 May.
