Meet new feature "Floating Topic" in Astah's Mind Map! "Floating Topic" is a topic that does not belong to any branches. In version 6.5 or before, when you create new topics, you had to attach them to other relating topics. But you no longer have to. Now you can create new topics as many as you want as they pop in your head without having to worry about where they belong. They can be placed on Mind Map without finding where they should belong right away and place them in the right branches later when you sort them out. Also now you can put plural Mind Maps in one Mind Map editor which makes it very useful when you compare several Mind Maps on a same canvas or integrating them all together to complete one Mind Map.
Now you can have mulitple Mind Maps in one editor
More Activity Diagram 2.x options are now available.
Handling Plug-ins has become much easier with new dialog. All installed Plug-ins appears in the list and now you can switch ON/Off from this dialog to use it.
Now you can attach Notes to each Attributes and Operations for individual descriptions.
Astah now launches via an .exe file (previously a .bat file). A black dialog won't appear when launching Astah and you can add Astah to the quick launch bar in the task bar (in Windows).
You are now able to draw DataFlow with a dashed line in a Data Flow Diagram.
The diagram difference guide has become more clear and intuitive to show every difference between two diagrams visually. ([Compare Project] - [Show Diagram Difference]).
[Apply to existing elements] button is added in the property of Class Diagram and Requirement Diagram to apply the display setting to the existing models instantly.
The [Tab] key will make it easier to insert new topics with these new shortcut keys!
