ArgoUML 0.13.1 released (Developer release)

The development release 0.13.1 of ArgoUML is now released. This is a development release, or a development snapshot if you will, showing the direction that the future of ArgoUML will have and testing some new ideas.

This release will be followed by several other 0.13.X-releases before eventually a stable 0.14-release will be made.

Big fixes
Most of the improvements have been made on the inside, so to say, in the development environment and you will hopefully not notice this unless you check out the tool:... read more

ArgoUML 0.11.1 (developer) released

The development release 0.11.1 of ArgoUML is now released. This is a release which is in several respects better than 0.10.1 but also in some areas probably a little shakier since a lot of changes are made.

Big fixes:
* New handling of Notations
* Released version of GEF included
* ArgoUML now tries to detect incorrectly saved XMI and generates a warning.

ArgoUML 0.10 released

This is the first stable release of ArgoUML since 0.8.1a.

Stable in this case does not mean bug-free or perfect. The fact is that
there are several known defects.

Stable instead means that we have reached a level considerably better than
0.8.1a and are putting the foot down to allow also not so adventurous users
to choose 0.10 for their projects. New problems found in 0.10 might be fixed
in a 0.10.1 or a subsequent 0.10.2 if that can be done without breaking
anything.... read more
