We are so glad to announce StarUML V3 release. The new V3 changed underlying platform to electron. It brings a lot of advantages for new features, performance, stability and so forth. The new V3 has many features that you can take advantage of.
The previous version allow to edit only one file at the same time. Now V3 allows to popup multiple windows so that you can edit multiple files simultaneously.
Data Flow Diagram
Many users has been requested to support DFD (Data Flow Diagram) as one of diagram types. So it is now available in the new V3.
You don’t need to download and install manually any more. The new V3 supported auto update for Windows and macOS. (Auto update for Linux is not yet supported).
Light and dark themes
Now light theme is added, so you can choose one of dark or light theme for UI.
Copy diagram image to clipboard
Copying diagram image to clipboard is supported, so you can copy and paste diagram image easily into other applications like Word or PowerPoint without explicitly exporting diagram images.
Code signing for executables and installers
In many reasons, we couldn’t provide code signing in the previous version. Now we’re ready to provide signed executables and installers for Windows and macOS from the new V3. No more unsigned warnings.
Because we changed underlying platform to electron, so APIs for extensions are changed in many parts. It causes that extensions for V2 will not work in the new V3 and they are required to be updated with V3 APIs. APIs for V3 are much more easier and simpler powered with electron’s APIs and ECMAScript 6 support.
Hope you enjoy and satisfies with the new StarUML V3. Thank you.

Linked Diagram Navigator and Elements Cleaner extensions developed by Marco Zille are available in Extension Registry. The first extension (Linked Diagram Navigator) lets the user navigate to a diagram attached to an element with a simple right-click. The second extension (Elements Cleaner) searches inside the project for all the items that have nothing connected and shows them inside a list where the user can choose to remove each element. These extensions are open source and hosted on Github (https://github.com/zillemarco/StarUML_LinkedDiagramNavigator) (https://github.com/zillemarco/StarUML_ElementsCleaner). Thanks to Marco.
Protogen extension developed by Pranav Sathyanarayanan is available in Extension Registry. This extension generates protocol buffers based on Entity Relationship Diagrams. This extension is open source and hosted on Github (https://github.com/PranavSathy/staruml-protogen). Thanks to Pranav.
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).

Word wrap for attributes, operations and other text elements.
Now you can set word wrap for most of text elements including attributes, operations, association roles, etc. Word wrap settings are saved to the file, so these are restored when you loaded from file.
