What's new in MagicDraw 11.5 EAP Beta:

Model Decomposition improvements. Model Decomposition is powerful tool to split project and work with part of it independently. New improvements bring these new additional capabilities especially suitable when working with the large projects:

Read-Write modules allow seamless module editing of the fragmented model;

Ability to have flexible control over the dependencies between model parts. MagicDraw allows you to continue without resolving these dependencies;

Ability to work with not loaded modules allows load modules information into memory just at necessary moment. It saves memory, shortens project startup time and improves performance when working with very large projects;

Export of MagicDraw model to EMF based UML 2.0 compatible XMI. It allows interchange of UML 2.0 models with the most popular MDA tools such as AndroMDA, OpenArchitectureWare, and others for further manipulations and transformations. To see an early view of the EMF export from MagicDraw 11.5 EAP Beta with the latest release candidate from AndroMDA, you must use AndroMDA 3.2 which can be downloaded here.

Perspectives – ability to select predefined or customized MagicDraw configuration and features according to your specific role in your software development process.

General usability and diagramming improvements that can accelerate your modeling efforts.
