StarUML 2.8.0 Release

StarUML v2.8.0 is now available for download. This release includes the following features and fixed issues.

Show stereotype icon in Model Explorer

Now you can see stereotype icons in Model Explorer. It makes you easier to identify stereotypes (e.g. boundary, entity, control) in the Model Explorer. Note that boundary, entity, control stereotypes included in the previous version (2.7.0 or lower) are not shown in Model Explorer. To show the icons, you need to re-apply UML Standard Profile and re-bind the stereotypes in this new version (2.8.0).
