Ptcgraph is new (fpc 2.4.4 will be the first stable release that has it) 
and was designed to be a better implementation of graph. Since it's 
still new, it probably needs more testing. It should have roughly the 
same feature set, but with better compatibility and consistency across 
all platforms, as well as better emulation of all the DOS modes from TP7 
(CGA, MCGA, EGA, VGA, Hercules) as well as the VESA modes from the 
go32v2 graph unit. It doesn't have all the extra windowsisms exposed in 
the win32 graph unit, because they're not portable. It also still 
doesn't have an equivalent to the winmouse unit, but I'm planning to 
make a similar ptcmouse unit sometime soon :)
