Neumont ORM Architect for Visual Studio 2006-06CTP released!

(Repeat of the release notes)

This is an incremental release of the 2006-05 CTP. This will be our final release on the April 2006 CTP of Microsoft's DSLTools framework.

This includes all changes through revision 666 in the svn repository

Fixes include:
1) The Model Browser window updates the auto-generated fact names.
2) There is now a sample population window. We are not yet validating constraints against these populations or displaying them in the diagram. The editor will become much smoother in the future, but the initial data entry is in place. 3) We are now generating a preliminary data-access layer as an alternate implementation of the in-memory representation of the object model. Expand the PLiX_Implementation setting in the ORMGeneratorSettings dialog to see the different implementations.
4) There is no a proper UI in place for selecting alternate verbalizations in the options page. Refer to the forum post on how to create alternate verbalization files.... read more

Preferred identifiers for objectified types - The preferred identifier for objectified types can now be graphically specified

New reading editor - A new, vastly improved reading editor has been incorporated into the designer

Full UI for setup - The setup package now sports a full UI with verbose status feedback for installation, repair, and removal... read more

Neumont ORM Architect for Visual Studio 2006-04CTP released!

A number of enhancements have been made since the 2006-02CTP and 2006-03CTP releases. The most visible will be the visual feedback for the live error validation. Any element with errors will display with a hatched red background. You can see the errors under the 'Validation Errors' sub menu off the context menu. Selecting an error from the list will activate it, which puts the editor in the correct state to fix the error. You can also double-click any shape with errors to activate the first error in the list.... read more
