Modelio 5.3.1 Release

We are pleased to announce the release of Modelio 5.3.1. Discover now what's new in this version :

Key New Features

ArchiMate 3.2 Support : Modelio supports the latest version of the ArchiMate standard. This new iteration of the standard proposes an evolution in the relationships between ArchiMate elements and a standardization of element representation modes.The ArchiMate Modeling is delivered as a downloadable extension.

Customize your diagrams with new documentation elements : You can now directly insert formatted texts and customized images into your diagrams. This allows you to meet specific needs or to use a clearer representation for business teams.

Easily reuse existing elements in new diagrams : The new model element creation mode is available in all diagrams and formalisms. It allows the reuse of existing concepts by a targeted search among elements of the same type andunmasking the selected element instead of creating a new concept. This function is simply activated by pressing the "CTRL" key when creating an element. It offers a search window allowing you to select an existing element or to create a new one.

Merge similar concepts within the repository : This new tool allows you to automatically merge elements of the same type within the model repository. When merging, all relationships of the merged elements are preserved. The diagrams, in which the merged concepts appear, are updated automatically; this ensures the quality of the resulting models.

ArchiMate Model

  • ArchiMate elements are sorted alphabetically in the model explorer.

  • In the view creation interface, views are now separated into two categories to facilitate access to essential views: basic views and specialized views.

  • ArchiMate Import/Export: Specific properties associated to ArchiMate elements are now imported and exported.

  • ArchiMate Import/Export: ArchiMate view descriptions are now imported and exported correctly.

  • ArchiMate views: the graphical option "Show labels" now allows to show or hide labels of ArchiMate relations.

  • New audit rules have been made available to facilitate the detection of errors in enterprise architecture models.

BPMN model

  • Changed the color of Gateways to make them more visible in the "Cobalt" style

  • At the time of creation, a new BPMN process diagram is blank, without the start and end.

  • The Exclusive Gateways are represented in the most used form by default: the diamond with a cross.

  • When using the element type transformation services in BPMN diagrams, the associated notes remain visible.

  • Labels associated with gateways and events are displayed in full after editing in the "Properties" view

  • Fixed a set of issues related to the resizing of Lanes.

  • Any Lane of a participant can be resized, not just the first one

  • When using the BPMN element grouping service in a sub-process, the associated Sequences Flow remain the same.

Ergonomic evolutions

  • When creating a model element in a diagram, it is now possible to edit its name directly.

  • A new command allows you to select all the elements of the same type in a diagram. It is accessible from the context menu and the diagram toolbar.

  • The link anchor system for all diagrams allows relationships to be aligned on the diagram grid. This improves the presentation of your diagrams.

  • Jython macros can now be run from the diagram context menu.

  • The Search function is simply accessible via the keyboard shortcut <CTRL>+F

  • Diagrams: Improved behavior when moving an element with a "U" link to another element.

  • Diagrams: It is now possible to precisely move the guards of Sequence Flows.

  • The icon for exporting diagrams to Image format is now different from the icon for saving a project in order to avoid confusion between the two functions.

  • Floating descriptions that appear when the mouse is moved over the tab of a diagram are now displayed correctly when they are in HTML format.
