The new chart types include histograms, heat maps, and trellis, box and whisker charts, and HTML5 is used to provide tool tips and rollovers.
UI changes include additional filter operations, view-level converters that can be reused in subsequent reports, and built-in report usage tracking. The UI has also been restyled.
"The scalability of a BI solution is critical because if there's one certainty, it's that a company's reporting needs will constantly change as they grow, and the strategic direction or data collected changes," said Yellowfin senior software engineer Steve Joynt. "Yellowfin 5.2 addresses the need for product robustness and easy scalability by making clustering easier, introducing the ability to share session tokens across instances, and by optimising Yellowfin's start-up process to minimise dashboard loading time.
Yellowfin 5.2 will be available from June 10. Pricing for the new version was not revealed.
"This release has been developed with one goal in mind - making Business Intelligence easier," said Yellowfin CEO, Glen Rabie.
