VVI (http://www.vvidget.org) has released version 10.6.1 of Vvidget,
a point and click graphing solution for Mac OS X. The upgrade adds
the Quadratic Lab to help students explore the quadratic equation.

It also adds Least Squares to provide straightforward regression
analysis, Stereo Graph for inexpensive true 3D viewing of perspective
graphs and Web Signals to monitor events on the web in real time.
Each operates with an interface dedicated to its function while also
providing access to Vvidget Builder’s powerful layout features for
publication-ready results.

With Vvidget, documents can have built-in queries to relational
databases such as Oracle, SQL Server and MySQL. This means the
Vvidget can give immediate visualization of data stored in enterprise
databases right through the Finder. Scientists, engineers and
analysts can now store data files on the file system and browse them
in graph format using custom Cover Flow plug-ins for a data
visualization browser and explorer.

The Vvidget Builder GUI (graphical user interface) tool is free. The
software is used to automate graphs for desktop applications,
Dashboard widgets and web sites. To automate graphs for desktop
applications and Dashboard widgets, Vvidget Code can now be purchased
online for Commercial use (US$189) or educational use ($79).
