EMF Compare/New and Noteworthy/3.3.0

New or Improved Features

Here is a list of all the new or improved features:

  • [493921] User can deactivate filters - deactivated filters will not appear in the comparison UI and will have no effect;
  • [479449] Introduce MultiplicityElementChange - a new kind of Diff for UML models;
  • A preference has been added to allow users to state whether or not their models should be pre-merged in case of conflict during a model merge;
  • [495259] Automatic UML profile migration when comparing Papyrus models;
  • [497066] Don't show problems tab if only warnings;
  • [495753] Improve layout and homogeneity of EMF Compare preference pages;
  • A git merge strategy has been added to support Additive Merge - Such a merge will not consider deletions and thus automatically resolve all the conflicts related to deletions (and all the related changes and their consequences) by rejecting the deletions;
  • Modification of the display of comparison in the comparison editor.
