Tom Sawyer Software Releases Tom Sawyer Perspectives, Version 5.1

Includes faster HTML5 rendering and additional designer preferences for enhanced application customization.

Berkeley, CA, June 5, 2013 - Tom Sawyer Software, the premier provider of software for building high-performance data visualization and social network analysis applications, announces the release of Tom Sawyer Perspectives, Version 5.1. This release improves the HTML5 rendering performance and adds new Designer customization options.

With this release, Tom Sawyer Perspectives expands the available drawing preferences, enabling users to flexibly stylize visualization projects. Drawing view enhancements include hover and highlighting color settings, and customizable navigation control and overview placement. In addition, toolbar buttons may now be organized into drop-down lists, and tooltip delay and duration times may be adjusted. Hovering enhancements have been ported back to older browsers such as Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 and 8.

Tom Sawyer Perspectives, Version 5.1 additionally includes new k-core and m-slice graph analysis algorithms to greatly enhance methods to identify the relationships between organizations, people, locations, and other entity types. Using these algorithms, one can identify essential actors and relationships and hide those that are less important. These new algorithms are particularly useful in intelligence, public safety, social services, cyber security, and networking projects.

Tom Sawyer Perspectives is rules-based software for developing production data-oriented visual analysis applications. It enables both enterprise and government organizations to gain key insights on Social Network Analysis and Big Data from complex data generated from a variety of sources.
