DataShine has been out for around a week now, and we’ve made some changes to fix small bugs.
- DataShine should work much better in Internet Explorer 9 now, as we now prompt this browser to use compatibility mode, with which the website displays correctly.
- When showing a dataset that diverges around the mean, we always switched to the red/green divergent colour set, even if another colour set was specified in the URL. We now keep track of this and other manually specified colour changes, and stop the auto-changing in these cases.
- We truncate long category names more aggressively now, so that they don’t spill out of the end of the data chooser even in browsers that use larger text for drop-downs.
