New Gapminder features

If you use Gapminder, and I think you should, there are new features. Here's the note I got from Gapminder.

Bubbles on touch screens!
The new ⧉ Gapminder Tools are launched here: gapminder.org/tools.
Our new and improved bubble chart is now joined by an interactive income mountain and bubble map.
The new tools:
- Work on mobiles and touch screens;
- Load faster;
- Have open source code. http://gapminder.org/tools
Stay tuned! Translations and more to come later this year.
Please help make the tools even better! The new tools are not fully polished yet, so check them out at gapminder.org/tools and give us feedback at info@gapminder.org. All comments are most welcomed.
