0.8.2 beta released

The latest version of Gephi has been released, download it for Windows, Mac OS and Linux platforms. This release captitalizes the bugfixes and stability improvements we have done over the last few months. It also greatly improves the Mac OS X compatibility with the Gatekeeper and Retina Display support. Gephi should now starts right away when double-clicking on the App with a Gatekeeper-enabled computer. However if you have an older version of Gephi on your computer, you should uninstall it and remove the user directory, see the installation instructions.

This release is the first one based on our new Continuous Integration environment. This new system makes it easy for developers to create a new release and for beta-testers to test an early version. Users eventually get a software which has been tested much more heavily and by a larger population compared to previous releases.

Plugins need to be checked for compatibility. They will reappear on the Plugin Center in the coming days, as they are verified. Thanks for your patience.

Consult the release notes and the new Javadoc for more information.

  1. We’re in the process to migrate to our new plugin center at http://marketplace.gephi.org. I just updated the Neo4j plugin for the 0.8.2 version there. You can manually download it and install it in Gephi. That will be resolved soon and Gephi will directly look for plugins on the new platform. Let me know if the plugin works.

  2. I was hoping that some work might be done on standardizing partition color palettes, an issue that has bounced around the forums quite a bit.

    A version was implemented in ranking (https://blueprints.launchpad.net/gephi/+spec/save-palette), but not for partition.

    Could you tell me whether this is planned for the future? It would be extraordinarily helpful as many of the random colors are similar and of course cannot be replicated if they are lost (massive headache when graphs need consistent look and feel for presentations).

  3. Bump…Neo4j plugin is not working for me in Gephi. On import it shows a blank warning dialogue box…nothing more.
