Chart for PHP?

I have tried Google Chart API, graidle and GD.
* Google Chart API is nice, but you have to send all parameters to
google server. It is not safe and fast.
* Graidle has great potential. But it is in an early stage. (currently
v0.5).
* GD has a long history. But its chart does not look nice.

Is there any other good/free chart library for PHP?

There's a relatively simple Chart library:

and a somewhat heavy, but very powerful jpGraph:

I find Libchart easy to use. This can be downloaded from:

http://naku.dohcrew.com/libchart/pages/introduction/

This provides you with the ability to create loads of different
graphs.

Thanks, I tried JpGraph. It is powerful. I can make charts look like
google chart. But one thing is really annoying. When I turn on
Anti-Aliasing, the weight of all lines will be reduced to 1px. The
developers explained it as a technical limitation. Without
anti-aliasing, the chart does not look well.

Thanks, I will have a try later. But from the screenshots, this library
seems not to support for anti-aliasing, does it?
