I have found that BarChart has changed quite a lot in v7. In v6,
BarChart[{1,2,3},{1,2,3}] produces a chart with six bars, grouped
1,1,2,2,3,3. In v7, the correct syntax is BarChart[{{1,2,3},{1,2,3}}],
and gives a chart also with six bars but grouped 1,2,3,1,2,3. I would
like to revert to the v6 behaviour. It can be done with BarChart
[Transpose[{{1,2,3},{1,2,3}}], but labelling the chart with a label
under each group of two data (that is, one label under the columns
1,1,...) becomes a pain, specially for large sets of data. Do you know
of a simpler method other than reverting to v6?

Thanks in advance
