PolarLava CycleLog V2.5.0

The latest update to my CycleLog adds graphs for the distance, average and maximum speed.  You will find these graphs on main, calendar and search pages.

At this time on the main page I'm not graphing the "Lifetime" section as the amount of data requires this to be a tremendously large sized image in order for this to be readable.  It's largely more for my current rides as you'll note on the calendar pages.  But it's also a nice feature to have on the search page although depending on the data set, it can take up to 30 seconds to generate the image.  Thus in most places the image is cached with the notable exception of the current month on the calendar page.  The intent is to eventually graphing of the year on the main page as well as on the Yearly Summary page.  A lot of that will depend upon finding a suitable image size that will allow the data to be displayed but still maintain a reasonable file size.  Being historical data I will only need to actually generate them once with the exception of the current year.  And that will need to be generated a separate process as it takes too long to generate as part of the page generation.

I'd also like to take a moment and give a quick nod to JpGraph which is what I'm using to generate these images.  I can't begin to say enough good things about how easy and flexible the application is.  I'd highly recommend it to anyone who is looking to do (a wide variety) of graphing.
