both rqt_multiplot and PlotJuggler were announced mostly t the same time. 
I guess we may say that they try to solve the same problem in two different ways.
In a ideal world, we might have collaborated, but we probably have different opinions in terms of UI and usability.

1) both gives the much needed ability to save the configuration/layout once you arranged your plots.
2) PlotJuggler, additionally, provides multi-window and multi-tabs
3) PlotJuggler itself is NOT a ROS application. ROS is supported through plugins. 
4) Apparently rqt_multiplot focuses on live streaming from topics. PlotJuggler can load data directly from rosbags or CSV files. You can extend the loaders using custom plugins.

I am happy to receive feedback from the users about that rqt_multiplot does best :D to improve my own application.
