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.

Package Overview Diagram
Package Structure
Package Structure Diagram
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.

The detailed resolved issues can be found at Release Note.

  1. Hi,
    I created a class inheriting attributes and operations from super class, I guess its better to see the inherited attributes and operations in the inherited class.

    1. Thank you for posting your idea 🙂

  2. Wow! StarUML 2. It’s very glad to see.
    StarUML is still my favorite uml designer dispite of stop upgrading at 2008.
    At this moment, I feel like I’m Humboldt!!!

    1. Thank you for using for a long time 🙂

  3. Thank you for StarUML 2.
    Would you like to update icon for robustness ?

    1. Before creating elements of robustness, you need to apply UML Standard Profile (Model > Apply Profile > UML Standard Profile). We will find more easier way to use robustness elements. Sorry for inconvenience. Thank you.

  4. Thanks for releasing StarUML again.
    I found a bug when opening saved sequence diagram file.
    After opened a saved file, there is no update in the UI.
    I hope I can use saved files from the next Beta 5.

    1. Could you send us your file to investigate your problem?

      1. I’ve tested it with Beta 5. anyway, it works correctly.

        but, after opened saved file, need to open sub-item of “Model” in the Explorer.
        after that, I can see the diagram.

        I think general users wants to see saved diagram after opened a file.

        thanks : )

    2. Do you mean that the working diagrams need to be memorized and they should be opened when the file is opened? How about leave your idea on our feature request site? ( Thanks for your comment.
