Will SAS/Graph code written in 9.1.3 work in 9.2 without any changes (anything new we'd look into). We also have a menu system using SAS/AF which drives the graphs and are concerned about things breaking. Was pretty seamless when we went from 8.2 to 9.1.3.
The main difference for traditional SAS/GRAPH code is that style templates are now used for graph style characteristics. Coupled with that, new font rendering changes result in better looking fonts.
You can turn off the automatic use of style templates with this SAS system option:
I have taken hundreds of my SAS/Graph samples from v9.1.3 to v9.2, and as best I can remember, *all* of them continued to work at v9.2 🙂
That said, v9.2 has a _lot_ of changes & enhancements, therefore the same code often produces graphs which look "different" (hopefully better) at v9.2. The following paper gives examples of many of the differences, and specific coding techniques you can use to get the old behavior back (if desired):
