I've used gdchart previously but these days I use ChartDirector which,
although being a commercial program ($99), was well-worth the money
for me.

It produces high-quality charts, is very flexible (e.g. you can
overlay different chart types, add custom symbols, produce HTML image
maps) and has excellent bindings for Python and many languages.

Also, I've found the support to be unusually friendly, accurate and
fast. The documentation is good enough so you won't need it much (and
customised to each language too, with something like 100 examples).

Some samples:
