Python Google Chart 0.2.0

I released pygooglechart 0.2.0 this afternoon after several months of patches coming in to add features and fix bugs. The main addition to pygooglechart is automatic data scaling, which is turned on by default. You can also specify the scale range manually:

chart = SimpleLineChart(width, height, x_range=(0, 100), y_range=(0, 100))

Other features are the new API chart types and options. There are 3 new chart types: Map, Google-o-Meter and Radar. Here is an example of using the Map chart type:

import pygooglechart as gc

chart = gc.MapChart(440, 220)
chart.set_colours(('AAAAAA', '30A030', 'A0C030'))
chart.set_codes(['AU', 'US', 'CA', 'BR', 'NZ'])
chart.add_data([1, 0.5, 0.7, 0.3, 0.1])
chart.download('map.png')

Produces the URL:
http://chart.apis.google.com/chart?cht=t&chs=440×220&chd=s:9frSG&chco=AAAAAA,30A030,A0C030&chtm=world&chld=AUUSCABRNZ

And the image:

The Google-o-meter has a funny name. Here is an example of its usage:

import pygooglechart as gc

chart = gc.GoogleOMeterChart(440, 220, y_range=(0, 10))
chart.set_pie_labels(['Awesome'])
chart.add_data([8])
chart.download('gom.png')

It produces this URL:
http://chart.apis.google.com/chart?cht=gom&chs=440×220&chd=s:x&chl=Awesome

And the image:

Well, have fun. Please tweet me for any bugs, patches or feature requests you have.
