||What's new in Sirius 6
Major Changes in Sirius 6:
Sirius now supports an optional integration with ELK for improved diagram layouts: specifiers can configure which ELK algorithm and parameters should be used for each of their diagrams, directly inside the VSM (ticket #509070). This is still considered experimental in 6.0.
A new generic edge creation tool is now available on all Sirius diagrams. With it, end users no longer have to select a specific edge creation tool in the palette, but only to choose the source and target elements (ticket #528002).
Improved compatibility with Xtext with an important bug fix (ticket #513407). This is a first step towards a better integration with Xtext, more fixes and improvements will come during the year.
It is now possible for specifiers to configure the background color of each diagram. Like everything else in Sirius, the color can be dynamic and reflect the current state of the model. (ticket #525533).
When developing a new modeler, it is now possible to reload the modeler’s definition (.odesign) from an Eclipse runtime if the definition has changed in the host that launched the runtime. This is similar to “hot code replace” in Java, but for VSMs, and avoids stopping/restarting a new runtime on each VSM change (ticket #522407).
In the VSM editor, when editing an interpreted expression which uses custom Java services, it is now possible to navigate directly to a service’s source code using F3 (ticket #471900).
A more visual overview can be found in the Obeo blog.
