Vizlib September 2018 Release

Not long ago, we started introducing a monthly release cycle which will provide you with a summarized overview of all the latest features and changes, including a comprehensive change log.

Important: you will still be able to download our individual Vizlib extensions in the usual way as and when they are released, outside of the Vizlib Library release cycle.

Vizlib Pivot Table Column Selector

Vizlib Community BETA

As part of our on-going commitment to improve our support and customer experience we have launched the beta phase of our Vizlib Community and Customer Support Portal. The aim is to provide our Vizlib user base with a portal where you can quickly browse most asked questions, find tutorials and how-to's, upvote on feature requests and discuss use cases and questions with other participants. All release notes of our library will be posted on Vizlib Community giving

We are still in the process of fine-tuning the forums and the support platform as a whole, but we would like you to invite you to participate and have a browse yourself, and as always, share with us your valuable feedback.
