New User Interface

Now, StarUML has completely new user interface inspired from modern Flat-style UIs. To implement UI, we used some parts of open sources such as Adobe Topcoat and Brackets. We hope you like this new style of UI.

Changes in Menu

There are many changes in Menu. First, “Diagram” menu was removed and “View” menu was added because we want to keep simplicity and consistency with previous version. Detailed menu changes are described in following:

  • Close Diagram, Close Other Diagrams, and Close All Diagrams menu items moved to “View” menu
  • Zoom In, and Zoom Out menu items moved to “View” menu.
  • Layout (Diagram) menu item moved to “Format” menu.
  • Export Diagram As menu item was moved to “File” menu.
  • Actual Size and Show Grid menu was added in “View” menu.
  • Next Diagram and Previous Diagram was added in “View” menu.

StarUML 2.0.0-beta4 Release

StarUML v2.0.0-beta4 is now available for download. This release includes the following features and fixed issues.

Diagram Generator

You can generate three types of diagrams: Package Overview, Package Structure, and Type Hierarchy in Diagram > Generate menu. It helps you to understand a huge complex model.

Overview

Package Structure

Type Hierarchy

Type Hierarchy Diagram

 

Diagram Layout

Now you can select directions of diagram layout. Sometime if you have so many classes and generalizations in a diagram, the automatic layout will spread classes horizontally too wide. It decreases readability. Then, you can select vertical layout (left to right or right to left) and it is better than horizontal layout.

Changes in Formatting

Added “Show Visibility” and removed “Show Compartment Visibility” 

In previous versions, we could only show or hide visibility in compartment items such as Attributes and Operations via “Show Compartment Visibility” menu. Now, we have more general “Show Visibility” which allows to show or hide visibility in not only compartment items but also relationships such as Association or AssociationEnds.

Removed “Show Compartment Stereotype”

The menu “Show Compartment Stereotype” is removed in order to simplify controlling visibility of stereotypes. Now, we need to only remember that “Stereotype Display” can be applied to most of elements including Attributes, Operations, and even Associations and Dependencies.
