Version 3.10 (Build 440) released
« on: January 08, 2002, 05:12:23 am »
On the 9-Jan-2002
Enteprise Architect Version 3.10
********************************
Release 3.10 is a minor version update which rolls up all the patches and refinements since the 3.00 release.

Special note regarding replicated models: This version of EA will update your model files (.eap) when you open them. Do not try and update a Replica project - always update the Design Master first, then synchronize the Replicas with the Master to copy the changes to the Replica. You may also elect to create new replicas from the updated Design Master and discard the old version 2.5/3.00 Replicas.

Special note regarding registry settings: Due to the sometimes problematic nature of sharing registry keys between EA versions we have been forced to disregard any previous settings and start each version fresh.  However the upside of this is that it will now be possible to have more than one version of EA installed on a machine, since each version will operate independently.


The main features are:

- Addition of a dockable 'tab bar' to provide easy access to testing scripts for an element
- Addition of a dockable 'tab bar' to provide easy access to system tasks, project issues and glossary
- Addition of a dockable 'tab bar' to to provide easy access to maintenance items (changes and defects) for and element
