HeuristicLab and Linux

Daniel Knittl-Frank is currently working on porting HeuristicLab to Linux/Mono and sent us screenshots of his progress which I wanted to share with you. Daniel has already got a modified version of HeuristicLab running on Ubuntu 11.10 with the git master of Mono. The last addition to his HL version is that charting now also works with Mono. So here is some eyecandy for the Linux users out there showing 3 views for analyzing runs:

Here is the bubble chart view on Linux:

The tabular view:

And the box-plot diagram:

Of course this is work in progress and hasn't yet landed in our subversion repository but will be integrated when we feel it is stable enough.

Chart export dialog for publication ready images

I'm working on a new export dialog for making publication-ready images of every EnhancedChart in HeuristicLab 3.3. Right-click inside a chart and select "Export Chart...". You'll get a dialog with a preview option where you can adjust the font sizes, specify the width and height in cm or inch, resolution in dpi or dpcm and even change or add axes descriptions and/or the title. Be aware that some charts have multiple chart areas and the correct one needs to be selected at the top.

The feature is still under development, see ticket #1611 for details. It's contained in the latest trunk build.

Tips to enhance it are welcomed.
