1. Arc diagram
Now you can highlight clusters displaying relationships and strength between different nodes thanks to the Highcharts arc diagram. An arc diagram is similar to the existing dependency wheel, but with a linear layout. As any Highcharts series type, the Highcharts arc diagram is supported with thorough documentation and plenty of demos:
2. Breadcrumbs functionality
Breadcrumbs replace the drill-up and traverse-up buttons. Breadcrumbs makes it easier for you to see what level you are looking at, and to find your way back to previous levels. You can use the breadcrumbs functionality for drill-down charts as well as hierarchical series such as treemaps and sunburst. Check out more about the breadcrumbs’ functionality.

3. TopoJSON capability
TopoJSON is now the preferred map source in Highcharts Maps, with support for client side projection and the capability to combine multiple maps. Maps can even be arranged with multiple projections with insets.
To learn more about TopoJSON capabilities, feel free to read Highcharts now prefers TopoJSON maps.
4. Align thresholds feature
The new align thresholds feature allows you to align the charts’ threshold with multiple axes.
Learn more about how to use align thresholds.
1. Allow disabling of AST filtering
If you prefer handling your own DOM XSS filtering; the bypassHTMLFiltering flag allows you to pass any input HTML directly to the chart.
2. Retina support for boosted charts
The new boost pixel ratio feature enhances the boost module to ensure razor sharp graphics on Retina displays. Read more about the boost pixel ratio feature.
3. Areaspline series with boost module support
The areaspline chart type is now enabled to handle a considerable amount of data thanks to the boost module support.
