  4. Support android as well as iDevices

    I'm not sure if this is a big one or not, but I know that Android uses a form of WebKit for the built-in browser so it can't be too far removed from the iPhone / iPad

    NB - technically you can install Opera or another browser, but most people don't

  5. Hiding of Y-Axis

    When hiding an Y-Axis (for example when using multiple Y-Axis), I'd suggest to remove the Y-Axis title as well. Yet only the axis disappears.

  6. Auto size margins and category labels

    Instead of setting the margins as an option, the required margin should be computed based on the size of the axis labels. Also add non-collision detection for category labels.

  7. Set timezone

    Setting in what timezone dateTimeLabelFormats are displayed. There is already useUTC, but usually when you have market data the time zone is displayed as the time zone of that specific market. So if someone is in for example in italy looking at data from Brazil, it's suppose to see the time as in BRST (Brazilian standart time) and not the local time zone setted in their computer

    Implemented this option today. The new option, global.timezoneOffset, should be used when useUTC is true to change how dates are displayed and grouped on axes, data grouping and labels/tooltips etc. Please test the new feature with your own data and report back in this thread.

    The Highstock file can be loaded from http://github.highcharts.com/highstock.js.

    Demo cases:
    - http://jsfiddle.net/highcharts/y6Q7p/

    This would allow us to control how the shadows look like, similar to photoshop drop shadow options.

  14. Allow export to PNG, JPG, PDF and SVG

    We're working on implemening a server component that will take an SVG representation of the chart and convert it to raster or vector image formats using Batik. A preview can be seen at http://www.highcharts.com/demo/?prerelease=1.3 (the download icon at the top right).

  16. Control axis visibility: show/hide (toggle) axes

    I'm aware that a similar idea has been completed (http://highcharts.uservoice.com/forums/55896-general/suggestions/1813731-hiding-of-y-axis), but what I'm asking for is different:

    There are a LOT of users asking for how to hide an axis completely:
    http://stackoverflow.com/questions/10877927/hide-axis-and-gridlines-highcharts
    http://stackoverflow.com/questions/15277405/highchart-show-hide-an-y-axis-without-hiding-the-series
    http://stackoverflow.com/questions/17409041/highcharts-hide-xaxis
    etc.

    Can we just have a property called "visible" on the Axis object that would show/hide the axis?

  18. Add Navigation bar for Y-Axis in Highstock

    My suggestion for a very helpful feature would be to add a vertical navigation bar for the Y-Axis, similar to the navigation bar that exists for the X-Axis, for Highcharts. Would lead to a highly interactive plot, especially suitable for project using scatter-plots

  19. Make charts resizable

    When a layout is fluid then having the charts resize automatically would appropriate (as OpenFlashChart does).
