Changes to Tigerstripe in Iteration 47:

Support copy/paste operation of Attributes, Methods, and Literals (Bugzillas 327248, 221442)
Copy/Paste operation is now supported for Attributes, Methods, and Literals. Users can invoke the operation from Tigerstripe Explorer, Artifact Editor, or Diagrams:

Operation can also be invoked using ctrl+c and ctrl+v shortcut keys.

Confirming removal of items on form editors (Bugzilla 320106)
When users attempt to remove any items from artifact editors, they're presented with a confirmation of whether or not they'd like to remove the item. Some users found this annoying and redundant, since the artifact is not modified until it's saved. The above enhancement introduces a 'Do not remind me again' option which allows users to turn off this dialog:

Users can enable/disable this dialog from Tigerstripe's preference page:

Selecting an artifact from a referenced project when creating associations (Bugzilla 325142)
When users create an association in diagrams, they now have the option of dropping the association end in an empty section of the diagram and select an artifact from a list of references.

Rework the Explorer to remove Java PackageExplorer reliance (Bugzilla 309783)

Disalbe action bar from Diagrams (Bugzilla 222500)
This is an old enhancement that has already been resolved.

Allow for description or contextual help annotations (Bugzilla 306093)
This enhancement was resolved a while ago, but the corresponding bugzilla entry was never updated. Annotation descriptions are displayed in the annotation wizard dialog as displayed below:

Modellers also have the option of specifying a description for their annotation parameters.

Removing a dependency in a diagram doesn't work (Bugzilla 322303)
This was an issue where removing a dependency from a diagram would not have any affect on the diagram, but the dependency would be removed from the corresponding artifact editors.

Dependency Diagrams should use correct notation (Bugzilla 339049)
This was a request by one of our users to use UML dependency arrows in Tigerstripe's dependency diagram page.
