The plugin initially released on November 03, 2013. Almost 8 years back. After few years, the plugin was closed due to some issues in the code. The code was fixed and submitted for a review.

One reason for the closure of the plugin was that all code should be compatible with GPL to be included in WordPress directory. The license under which the WordPress software is released is the GPLv2 (or later) from the Free Software Foundation. One of the included libraries was not GPL compatible. So the library was replaced with Chart JS which is fully compatible with GPL.

Now the plugin is listed again in the Official WordPress Plugin Repository.

SVN or Subversion is a popular version control system. Earlier we used GIT and hosted the code files on GitHub.
