In this practical talk, I will present 0.7 version of Gephi, open-source graph visualization & manipulation software. Gephi possesses a complete set of network visualization and analysis features, proposes major innovations in dynamic and hierarchical graphs and above all is a flexible and extensible architecture for plugins. I will firstly sum up embedded features: Layout, Metrics, Ranking, Filters, Partition, Preview, Clustering, DataLab. Then, I will present and discuss dynamic and hierarchical graphs features and roadmaps while showing live demo. Afterwards, I will outline our approach by presenting the Gephi project, some insights about performance and the various possibilities of using and extending Gephi in the way scientists and engineers can rely on. To conclude I will speak about plugin development and show how to create a plugin in five minutes.
