I am using Highcharts (styled version) with Heatmap, and I am trying to add boost.js and boost-canvas.js to the page.

Expected behaviour

Adding boost-canvas.js on top of boost.js should make the chart to render faster even when boost.js cannot be used (webgl not available, for example in a linux remote session).

Actual behaviour

The page crashes with the following error:
Uncaught TypeError: point.series.pointAttribs is not a function

Live demo with steps to reproduce

In order to trigger the issue you need to disable webgl, you can do so by using chromium with the command line option --disable-gpu, or by running chrome or chromium on linux through a remote x session (with xrdp for example).

It's the combination of both boost.js and boost-canvas.js what produces this issue, adding just one or the other does not.

Affected browser(s)

Chrome 58 64 bit on linux ubuntu 16.04

Related issue (same problem but related to boost.js): #6650

Fix proposal:

At line 126 in boost-canvas.js, change this:

pointAttr = (point.pointAttr && point.pointAttr['']) || point.series.pointAttribs(point);

with this:

/*= if (build.classic) { =*/
pointAttr = point.series.pointAttribs(point);
/*= } else { =*/
pointAttr = point.series.colorAttribs(point);
/*= } =*/

The fix was taken from this commit:

Even when I have a fix, I would prefer to see it included in an official release rather than relying on local patches on my end.
