ggplot2 version 1.0 has been released last week. Last March the author of this package declared a “feature freeze”. This means that no new functionality will be added in the future, although the package will continue to be maintained and kept working with future versions of R. No changes to our suite of packages or its documentation were triggered by this update.
In the future extensions to
ggplot2 will be in separate packages. Two good examples are
ggmap can be used to plot data (using regular
ggplot syntax) on top of a map.
ggtern adds functions for plotting ternary plots.
