kst is a program for looking at data streams. It can plot:
- x-y plots
- power spectra
- equations (including equations of data streams).
- data in files which are being updated as data is being logged, in which case in can act as a plotter for a chart recorder.
- much more
Kst supports realtime viewing and manipulation of streaming data.
You can use the mouse to rapidly zoom into interesting parts of the plots.
In addition to a complete GUI, kst has a convenient command line interface for rapid access to plotting data in files. It supports several file formats in use in scientific projects around the world including ASCII, dirfile, netCDF, and FITS.

The most notable improvements brought by Kst 2.0.4 over the 2.0.3 version released in April 2011 are:
- A major re-write of the auto-layout command: it works much better now and no longer gets in the way
- Improvements to automatic legend names
- Fixes to the layout mode, with better visual feedback during drag operations
- Numerous other bugfixes and improvements (point density, scientific notation, issues with log mode, bar colors, fixed aspect ratio in images and svg annotation items)
- UI and usability improvements: for instance you can now just double-click on labels or axes to open the corresponding dialog
- The introduction of a Settings->Theme dialog which sets brush, stroke, and font for all view items, optionally applying to all existing objects, and/or saving as the default for all future objects
- A great new auto-completer for the the equation editor and label editor, including support for wildcards
- A number of crashes fixed in various plugins
