MindFusion has released Diagramming for Java 4.0.4 Here is an overview of the new features:
Import of Visio 2013 files
You can use the new VisioImproter class to import *.vsdx files, created by Visio 2013. In order to use it, you must import the com.mindfusion.diagramming.importers namespace. The Import method has several overloads, which let you choose whether to import the diagram as a single Diagram whose content is merged from all imported pages or as a DiagramDocument whose pages correspond to the Visio pages. At this time VisioImporter supports the basic flowchart and data flow Visio stencils.
Import of OpenOffice Draw files
The new DrawImporter class can import .odg files, created by the OpenOffice Draw vector graphics editor. In order to use it, you must import the com.mindfusion.diagramming.importers namespace. DrawImporter supports shapes from the General and Flowchart shape palettes in Draw. You can choose among several overloads of the Import method to import the OpenOffice drawing into a DiagramDocument whose pages correspond to the Draw pages, or into a single Diagram whose content is merged from all imported pages.
- The AutoSnapToNode property allows links to be snapped to nodes from a distance
- Use the new RoundedLinks and RoundedLinksRadius properties to draw arcs at the joints of Cascading and Polyline links’ segments.
