New Image Library?
« on: April 24, 2014, 08:08:02 am »
I watched the webinar the other week showing the new features of Sparx Enterprise Architect V11 and in that I thought I saw a casual reference to a new image library. The webinar isn't available at present to double check so I thought I would ask on the forum. Now that V11 has been released I can't see anything about a new image library. Did I imagine it or is there a new image library on the way?

It's certainly coming, although I must admit I haven't personally seen it. I just had a chat with one of our wonderful team and found that we are still working on it.

An expanded and refreshed image library is good news,
takes me back though.

No doesn't seem to have appeared yet. Although I saw another presentation and it had a whole lot of images. Can't remember which presentation though.

There was a user group presentation from Tom O'Reilley on EA V11 and on slide 37 it has the new library of images.

Nice table about the product growth. Puts # of licenses against features introduced which suggests that the new features triggered the increase. Why do I see it the way that more licenses have been sold despite the new features?

Dunno why do you see it that way?
Granted there probably isn't a correlation between features and licenses sold.

Nice to know I was an early adopter back in 2004. Is it really that long ago, 10 years?

Because I think quite some of those "features" lack a good use case. I won't start enumerating them. But there are tons of useful feature requests NOT being realized and even more bugs still not fixed. I'd loved to see activities on those sides rather than where so much energy has been wasted. (I know that I'm a direct ancestor of Kassandra).

And yes, times goes by fast...

Not seeing any new images in EA 12.,
or from the downloadable image library.
The EA example does have some curious images though

OK - have a look at this page again ;) We just updated the page today actually...

http://sparxsystems.com/resources/image_library.html

There's a bunch of new images in that library.

Note: The rendering of the EMF's in EA diagrams is the same as before (so they look a bit jagged on screen), but print very nicely as vector graphics. It seems the jagged screen rendering issue is being addressed though, as the sample diagram on that URL above is taken from a pre-release of EA 12.x

I hope that helps,
Ben
