An extensive new set of Summary Chart types has been added to the user interface. These new Charts are based on Adobe Flash technology and provide dramatically-improved appearance as well as a variety of effects such as multi-series, 3D and multi-type. See some examples here.
Several Charts are interactive, allowing zoom, rotation, pie-wedge animation, etc.
Charts may optionally show a secondary Y axis, where some series plot against the primary axis, and some against the secondary axis.
Comprehensive Chart type list:
Bar Charts. (Horizontal Bar Charts have been renamed to Bar Charts).
Column Charts. (Vertical Bar Charts have been renamed to Column Charts).
Line Charts. This includes Ribbon, 3D, and Multi-Series Line Charts.
Area Charts. This includes 3D, Overlapping, and Stacked Area Charts.
Pie Charts. This includes 3D, Donut, and Simple Pie Charts.
Radar Charts. This now supports multiple overlapping series.
Combo Charts. These mix columns and lines, and optionally support a secondary Y axis.
