Dark Theme and refined UI
Dark Theme is now available and interface designs are refined.
To use Astah on dark theme, please read Astah User Interface.
Mini Map view on diagram
Now Mini Map is added to a Diagram Editor. When you work on larger diagrams, you can use this MiniMap for a quicker view of your diagrams and faster navigation.
Access models via Script Editor
Now you can use Script Editor in Astah System Safety which enables you to access models via script language for model validations, conversions and whatever you need.
Make your diagram more expressive with custom icons
Now you can upload image files and let multiple image files associate with a single stereotype.
This allows you to choose the image that matches with what you want your diagram to express.
More extension on SysML models
Newly supports SysML Enumeration, and also supports Note anchors to individual slots. We have made several other extensions. As the stereotype of the model element with the type, not only the type but also the stereotype of the model itself will be displayed preferentially. Also, actors can be placed in the block definition diagram, and constraints can be added to generalization.
This new version includes bug-fixes and improvements based on your reports and feature requests.
