New major release: 0.7.0

Today I created a new release from Debug Visualisation.

The new release is called 0.7.0, as it introduces major new features:

  • Preliminary support for Filtering nodes: similar to the Logical Structures feature it is possible to define the structure, and only visualise that (e.g. in case of Lists only the content should be depicted, not the other attributes).
  • Drill in: it is possible to define a new top-level element instead of the Local Context, and hide other items.

There are also some minor updates, such as the reintroduction of the Simulated cooling layout algorithm.

On the other hand most changes are not visible in the user interface, but the revamped code should allow us to create some new features in the next service releases.

We recommend the update for everybody. Some technical information:

  • After some fighting with the update site project the category information is lost. I have no idea of the cause.
  • There is a new feature present in the update site: the Java Filter project defines filters for some items in the collections API.
