Hi Madhwaraj,

Thanks for your mail, sorry for the time it has take me to respond.  There isn't really any design information to pass on, JFreeChart has mostly just evolved release by release.  There are probably 2 important milestones in the project...the first is that the structure changed a lot up until the 0.9.21 release, at which point I was mostly happy with the framework and then it was a matter of cleaning up small items until the 1.0.0 release.  At 1.0.0 the API was set and we have tried to maintain compatibility in the 16 subsequent releases (so there are additions, but little or nothing has been removed from the API). 

I would like to do a clean-up of the deprecated code and make some other API changes, so there is a project at GitHub for this future release of JFreeChart (jfreechart-fse).

I hope that info helps a bit...

Best regards,
David Gilbert
JFreeChart Project Leader

Dear All,

Kind attention : David Gilbert, Thomas Morgner

As part of research activity, I am conducting a few studies on the quality of software. For a case study, I have taken jfreechart for an evolutionary study as it enjoys the maximum number of downloads from users all over the world. It would be nice if I am able to access the design information i.e. major design changes that were done to jfreechart right from the first version till now. This, I believe would definitely help in interpreting certain research facts.

Thanking you.
