FlowChart.NET version 6.3.2 contains the following new features and improvements:

Support for Visio stencils
The diagram can now display shapes from stencil files in Visio 2003 XML stencil format (.vsx). To load a stencil file, use an instance of the VisioStencil class. The shapes are displayed in the diagram through VisioNode objects. To associate a stencil shape with the node, create an instance of the VisioContent class and assign it to the node's Content property.

Note that standard stencils installed with Visio are copyrighted by Microsoft, and you should not use them in your application. This feature is intended to let you use public domain stencils, or commercial clipart you have purchased a license for.

Visio import and export classes do not support VisioNodes yet; this will be implemented in next releases.

License keys
There is no separate trial build of the control assemblies anymore. Instead, set the DiagramView.LicenseKey property to disable the component's evaluation mode and stop displaying trial messages. If your application contains more than one DiagramView instance or other controls by MindFusion, you could call MindFusion.Licensing.LicenseManager.AddLicense(key) from application start-up code to specify the key once instead of setting it per each control. License key strings are now listed on the Keys & Downloads page at MindFusion's customer portal.

~ The maximum tab size in TabbedDiagramView can now be specified through the new MaxTabSize property.
~ Type of LinkLabel.Margin property changed from float to Thickness.
~ Initial state of PrintPreviewEx landscape button now corresponds to value of PageSettings.Landscape property.
~ ChangeUnit now also scales child elements of nodes such as TableNode cells and TreeViewNode items.
~ Masters for Start and Arrow7 shapes added to VisioExporter template file.
~ VisioImporter now tries to preserve ShapeNode.Shape when importing from files created by VisioExporter.
~ Support for StringTrimming.EllipsisCharacter in polygonal text layout in ShapeNodes.
~ fixed PdfExporter bug where text was rendered at wrong position if using Inch unit;

If anyone is interested in trying the beta version, please download this archive containing updated assembly files and a sample project showing how to load stencil shapes:

Any comments, questions and general feedback are welcome.
