Happy Birthday, Canada: animated categories

While Canadians looking for the ultimate party to celebrate Canada's 150th birthday on July 1, we will have a quick look at their spending habits. And we will do that by using new feature - animated categories.

Chart options panels went through some reorganization. Now we have "Current category label" panel:

and "Animation" panel:

For charts with multiple data rows that are considered categories (pie, regular bar and comparative histogram charts), can walk through all categories and update the appearance, creating an animation effect - see chart below.

Try it for yourself - create a pie, regular bar or comparative histogram chart with multiple data rows and play with animation settings. The feature comes handy when you embed visualization into a presentation and do not have a convenient way to click or hover over the chart to navigate between categories.
