0458 First stable release of LabPlot2. LabPlot2 is a complete rewrite of LabPlot1 and lacks in this release a lot of features available in the predecessor. On the other hand, the GUI and the usability is more superior as compared to LabPlot1 and there are several new features that were not available in LabPlot1.
0459 
0460 Brief summary of features and capabilities of LabPlot2 implemented in the first release:
0461         * project-based management of data
0462         * created objects are organized in a tree and are visualized and accessible in the project explorer
0463         * for a better management of objects, additional folders and sub-folders can be created within a project
0464         * spreadsheet with very basic functionality is available for manual data entry
0465         * "file data source" can be used to import a file and to let LabPlot2 watch for changes in that file
0466         * external data from an ascii file can be also directly imported to a spreadsheet for further editing
0467         * worksheet is the main object where plots, labels etc. are placed on
0468         * several zooming functions for the worksheet
0469         * only cartesian plot is implemented in the first release
0470         * arbitrary number of freely positionable axes is possible
0471         * xy-curve is implemented. As the data source for the x- and y-values columns either from a spreadsheet
0472           or from a file data source can be used
0473         * several zooming and "movement" functions are available for the plots which help to navigate through data
0474         * legend for xy-plots
0475         * a lot of properties of the worksheet elements can be edited in a very easy way in the corresponding dock widgets
0476         * plots on the worksheet can be put into a horizontal, vertical or grid layouts
