The 0.8 beta <http://gephi.org/2011/gephi-0-8-beta-released/> version of
Gephi has just been released and is available for Windows, Max OS X and
This release focus on new features for both users and developers, with
exciting new plug-ins possibilities. Our long-term focus hasn't changed:
performance, usability and modularity and we will continue to deliver
new features to the platform. As we are thinking about the 0.9 roadmap,
please join the discussion on the forum <http://forum.gephi.org> and
tell us what you would like to have improved.
*Features highlight 0.8 beta*
* Dynamic Ranking: Ranking now has an 'auto-apply' feature. It's no
longer needed to click on 'Apply' to update Ranking, it's done
automatically! Very useful for dynamic networks (i.e. longitudinal
* PNG Export: Create high-resolution network images with all the
customization available in Preview. You can even create transparent
* New Preview: Completely rewrite of the Preview bringing plug-ins
extensibility and much awaited features. You can now set edge/node
opacity or add text outline. The latter dramatically improves label
* Dynamic Metrics: Analyze network properties over time with the new
dynamic statistics, including Dynamic Degree, Dynamic Node Count,
Dynamic Edge Count and Dynamic Clustering Coefficient.
* ForceAtlas2 layout algorithm: Mathieu Jacomy, our layout algorithm
rock-star took the best of the ForceAtlas algorithm and made it scale to
much larger networks. It's fast, tunable and profits from multi-core
* Data Laboratory Node Merge: Select multiple nodes, right click and
select 'Merge nodes' to merge several nodes into one. You can customize
how the row data are merged (e.g average, max, set null).
* Three new filters: K-core, inter and intra partition. Inter/Intra
partition filters can be used to highlight links between different
communities or the contrary.
* SQLite support: The database importer now supports SQLite.
* Time interval support: The database importer can now use 'start' and
'end' columns to import longitudinal networks.
* New localizations: Go to Tools > Languages to change to the new
Japanese or Portuguese (Brazilian) locales.

Gephi is now released in the dual license CDDL + GNU GPLv3. We abandon
the GNU AGPL to offer new opportunities to reuse and integrate parts of
Gephi in a full Open Source way. The dual license system means the
possibility to choose to apply either the CDDL or the GNU GPLv3 when
Gephi source code is integrated to a derivative work. When modified,
original files of Gephi should always be published publicly so that the
community benefit from the improvements. However, the CDDL license does
not require to publish the whole work, so you can build commercial
applications for free using Gephi source code!
