Listed in the version Issues Fixed doc
Problem Description: In the past a list of colors could be given for each piece of data to be charted.  This list is now ignored for bar and horizontalbar chart.

Steps to Reproduce: Build a CFChart of type: bar.  In the CfChartSeries enter: colorlist="##a5be4a,##a5be4a,##e48701,##e48701"

Actual Result: Any colors entered are seemingly ignored.  

Expected Result: Each item of CFChartData would take on its corresponding color in the list.

Any Workarounds: You can use the simple "color" attribute but are limited to just one color in the series.

I will attach a sample chart from CF 10 and the same coded chart from CF 11.

CFChart styles have destroyed the look of any charts built in previous versions. Our CF11 deployment is at a standstill while we figure out how to re-style 100's of CFChart tags.
