The guys at Google continue to update and enhance the Chart Tools API. One new recent feature is a pie chart with a hole, or as some call them: donut charts.

Thankfully the new functionality is being achieved through new options for the existing pie chart, which means that those new features are available in R via googleVis as well, without the need of writing new code.
