Looker 6.0

Notable Features

Refactored Cartesian Charts

A new visualization engine provides for bubble charts, greater flexibility when mixing series types, and smarter defaults for Cartesian charts. It also lays the foundation for future developments. The visualization framework is generally available now, but could previously be enabled using the Enhanced Visualizations Labs feature.

Improved Color Picker

Allow your users to have complete information right off the bat when choosing color palettes for their visualizations. Default color palettes as dictated by the Admin panel are suggested first, followed by Looker’s out-of-the-box color palettes.
