  • [XAML] Exposed Style properties for the visual elements of continuous series (Line, Spline, Area, etc.)

  • Cartesian series visual elements can be customized via StrokeShapeStyle for the stroke shape and AreaShapeStyle for the area shape (e.g. LineSeries exposes only StrokeShapeStyle while AreaSeries exposes both style properties). The target type for all styles is Path.

  • Polar / Radar series visual elements can be customized via single ShapeStyle property. The target type is again Path.

  • When ChartSeriesLabelDefinition.Template or TemplateSelector is defined, the DataContext of the item labels data template should be the respective DataPoint and not just the calculated value as until now.

  • Change the access modifier of the following interfaces from public to internal (not intended for public use):

    • IChartSeries
    • IChartView
    • IFilledSeries
    • IStrokedSeries
    • ISupportCombineMode
  • Remove unused IDataPointProcessor interface (not intended for public use).

  • Introduced new Windows8 palette and made Metro palette obsolete.
