I have also upgraded to Update 3 and got the same error... Was working fine with Update 2.

Confirmed that this is an issue/regression. Probably a result of fixing bug CF-3756754 ( Since this is "fixed", another workaround is just to use the cfchart attribute and set it to showlegend="false".

We have hundreds of pie charts using zingChart styles and the legend is required for the information to be shown. It is not possible to just hide the legend as it is currently built.

Stephen, the pie charts we have require a legend for the way they are built.
