Yakindu Statechart Tools 2.3.0 is ready for Luna!


Today, the Luna release train arrived at Yakindu Statechart Tools Station! Apart from Luna compatibility, the new release version 2.3.0 provides some great new features. If you are new to statecharts and Yakindu Statechart Tools you should take a look at our Getting Started Tutorial.

New and Noteworthy

Version 2.3.0 is shipped with a new C++ Code Generator. Of course, all advanced statechart features like history states and parallel regions are supported. Furthermore, we implemented some features requested via our user group, for example a name wrangler for c function names and fixed a bunch of bugs. Of course, all the other cool new Luna features like the split editor are working with the new release, even the dark theme is. ;-)
Another interesting project worth to mention is the Statechart Tools Arduino Integration. Marco wrote a great article on how to run the generated statechart tools code on an Arduino board.

What's next? 

 

Based on the new GMF Compare feature (thanks for this, great job!) we started to create a diff/merge viewer for statechart diagrams. Since our viewer's merge functionality is not stable yet, we decided to publish it with the next release. However, if you want to test it, you can checkout the plugin from our svn repository. Do not forget to send us some feedback!
