Second Generation of Software Ideas Modeler

I am very glad that I can present the second major release of Software Ideas Modeler.

The new version brings several major changes. It supports the creation of four new types of diagrams (Package Diagram, Object Diagram, Profile Diagram and Communication Diagram). Consequently there are present many new diagram elements. From this version, diagrams can be linked to diagram elements. This version allows better options for element styling. Also the speed of redrawing is improved. Now you can decide whether you want better graphical output or the fast rendering. Much progress was made in the stability of the application.
