Eclipse Oxygen 4.7
The new version of Eclipse is just around the corner and we are making sure that WireframeSketcher works correctly with it. This release contains several bug fixes that ensure this.
- Improved SVG rendering to support icons from simpleicons.org
- Fixed the issue with text editing in certain types of user components
We’ll slow down new developments during the summer so please be patient with us. For the next fall and winter development cycles we are planning some major features, most notable being the migration to new Eclipse 4.7 platform for full HiDPI support, and improved diagramming.
Please don’t hesitate to suggest other improvements and features that you’d like to see added. We are listening!
