IDL 8.2.3 is scheduled to be released on May 21. While this is primarily a maintenance release, we've included several new routines. They are:
  • BUBBLEPLOT
  • VOLUME
  • FILE_ZIP
  • FILE_UNZIP
  • FILE_GZIP
  • FILE_GUNZIP
  • FILE_TAR
  • FILE_UNTAR
  • ZLIB_COMPRESS
  • ZLIB_UNCOMPRESS
  • IDLffVideoRead class
  • QUERY_VIDEO
  • READ_VIDEO
  • WRITE_VIDEO
  • TERMINAL_SIZE
BUBBLEPLOT has been an early favorite around VIS. Here's a sample from Eddie Haskell, the developer who wrote it (click to embiggen): Life expectancy versus income for selected countries I’ll post more information on these routines, as well as the rest of what’s included in 8.2.3, on the release date.
