At first glance, it looks like I just made some minor interface enhancements to tk Google Charter like styling the text boxes and drop down lists. However, there's more to that than meets the eye. ;)
The most important functionality, the ability to generate line and bar charts, that was lacking in the last version was added, which means that all types of charts that Google Charts API handles are now supported by tk Google Charter.
If you have no idea what your selected chart type would look like, simply choose any one that you're interested in. After making the big decision, my frenzied coding squirrels will scurry away and churn out a pretty little demo chart just for you with a little help from the Google pigeons. (I instructed them to call it a preview chart, but they whispered to me that it was confusing, since there was another preview chart.)
Lastly, chart size was also split up into width and height. My intelligent squirrels agree that it's more intuitive than typing 300x200. Maybe I should feed them more nuts. Then I'll get more ideas and you'll get quicker updates.
Disclaimer: No frenzied coding squirrels were ill-treated in the development of tk Google Charter or this post.
