  • Editing support:
    • Create new children elements
    • Delete a model element (with all its references)
    • Cut/Copy/Paste
    • Undo/Redo
    • Edit attributes through the Properties view
    • Save and Save As
  • Performance improvements
  • For each metamodel, memorize and restore chosen customizations and facets when the browser is opened
  • Support for contributions to the browser's context menu
  • Option to show the EMF URI of each model element
  • The browser is now automatically refreshed when one of its resources is externally modified

  • New option to display a unique ID on each model element ( MoDiscoBrowser Element id.gif ). This makes it easier to know whether two elements in the tree are equal.
  • Removed the dialog that asked for the loading depth each time the browser was opened; replaced it by a preference in a new preference page.
