Some of the improvements to the margins for axis titles may impact applications that use WCartesianChart with manual setPlotAreaPadding(), causing clipping of text, if the padding values are not adjusted. In some cases, the new setAutoLayoutEnabled() may provide a good alternative to manually updating the padding values.

Thanks, but this is mentioned?

The release notes capture the important information about the new setAutoLayoutEnabled feature - and I imagine that most new applications will want to use this feature.

But, before I updated my app to use the new setAutoLayoutEnabled feature, one chart that had rendered fine in 3.3.3 had some clipped text at the top; I had provided insufficient padding above the chart to accommodate some extra y-axis title margin that was added by Wt between 3.3.3 and 3.3.4. It's an edge case (literally), but might affect someone else upgrading from 3.3.3, so I thought I'd mention it.

I don't think I had to change anything else to upgrade to 3.3.4-rc2 (latest github). While my app only uses a fraction of what Wt provides, this looks to be another very solid release and easy upgrade. Thanks!
