This is a development version of JFreeChart that has been branched from the JFreeChart 1.0.x series. Here are some important notes:
the API has been changed and will continue to change until I (and the other contributors) feel it is ready to be frozen - that may be in 6 months, or it may be in 6 years;
this code is going to require AT LEAST JDK 1.6.0 to compile and, depending on how I (and the other contributors) feel, in the future we may even require JDK 1.7 or even a later version;
Maven is used to build this edition of JFreeChart;
JCommon is no longer a dependency (the subset of classes from JCommon that are still used have been incorporated directly in the source tree);
The aim is to modernise the JFreeChart API and code and have some fun with new stuff and NOT to be constrained by backwards compatibility.
