I am proud to announce another stability release for the
rrdtool 1.4 branch the main new feature of this release is that
large graph expressions are processed magnitudes faster. RRDgraph
is now using map lookups instead of linear searches for finding
*DEF variables. More information on changes listed below.

In autumn I moved the rrdtool source and bug tracker to
https://github.com/oetiker/rrdtool-1.x and I started to collect
ideas for RRDtool 2.x on https://github.com/oetiker/rrdtool-2.x

1.4.8 is the first release produced with the support of the 2013
rrdtool sponsors. If rrdtool plays an important role in your
companies monitoring operation you might want to think about
becoming a sponsor too:

RRDtool 1.4.8 - 2012-05-23


* rrd_graph now uses a map to lookup variable names causing graphs with many
  items to be drawn magnitudes faster as the linear search of the variable
  tables is gone now.

* the optional argument :skipscale allows for a LINE or AREA instruction to be
  excluded from having an effect on the scaling of the graph

* TRENDNAN is now working properly and als not crashing anymore

* Added a no-op string positioning combo "\." this allows to write
  COMMENT:OS\2\. which would otherwise not be possible.

* JSON output of xport is now actually json compilant by its keys
  being properly quoted now.

* The label positioner in rrd_graph is now properly ignoring the current
  state of DST.

* fixes and enhancements for Python, Ruby, TCL and Perl bindings

* improved error reporting in rrd_graph

* portability and cross compilation

* code and bugtracker moved to https://github.com/oetiker/rrdtool-1.x
