Latest News / Version 3.10 - Build 496 released
« on: June 18, 2002, 04:42:11 am »
- Added Interface, Class and Realisation icons to Component toolbar
- Added ability to link Note element to Connector Tagged Values (using the Link Note to Connector feature)
- Added suppoprt for PNG graphic format when exporting to image, RTF or HTML
- Added support for JPG graphic format when exporting to image, RTF
- Added support for TGA graphic format when exporting to image
- Added support for linking a PNG, JPG, BMP, TGA, PCX, EMF or WMF image to an element in a diagram (overrides drawing)
     * not all elements support linking to graphic (eg. Decision does not)
     * image is stored internally in EA (in PNG format to save space) - link to external file is not maintained
     * image is first shown at default size - but may be resized as required
- Added support for 'Package' scope (UML 1.4 compliance)
     * added at element, attribute and method level
     * for Java acts as <default> visibility      
     * for VB.Net corresponds to Friend
     * not used (currently) in C++ or Delphi
     * CSharp treats like Java - and writes out no scope to code
     * XMI output translates 'Package' scope to 'Protected' (UML 1.3 does not support 'Package' scope)
     * XMI output to EA format includes tagged value of 'scope=package' where appropriate to ensure reverse is correct
- Fixed a few minor resource leaks (unreleased menu handles)
- Fixed drawing of Interface ... attribute name overlapping compartment top when stereotype, name and property  set (eg. "{root}")
- Fixed display of long names in activities and events where height of wrapped text close to height of element - caused a blank line at top
- Fixed a bug that prevented some check boxes holding their value - notably affected operation parameters, operations and controlled packages. This was caused by some changes introduced in build 495 to increase database access speed. If you currently have build 495 we recommend upgrading.
