Starting from today, RSARTE 2018.12 is now ready for download. Here are a few of the highlights of this new release.
It is now easier to work with redefined code snippets. The Code view and Code editor more clearly tells you when a code snippet is redefined, and then provides a hyperlink for navigating to the inherited code snippet in the base class. Also, the commands for "re-inheriting" (i.e. removing a redefinition) are now available in the Project Explorer context menu. Previously they were only available in diagrams.
You can now search in working sets from the search field by means of a new "Working Set" scope. This setting is the same that can be set in the Model Search dialog.
We have continued to improve the model debugger. Now the context menu commands for launching a model debug session are also available for TCs in the new .tcjs format. There were also many improvements in the Debug view. For example, the tree now stays expanded and is no longer collapsed each time the application is suspended. And many of the labels shown in the view are now clearer and easier to understand.
The new TC editor continue to progress, although it is still an experimental feature. In this release we implemented many useful navigation commands. For example, you can now ctrl+click on names of TC properties in the Code tab to navigate to the corresponding control in another editor tab where the TC property can be edited. In the same way you can navigate from element URIs shown in the code to the Project Explorer.
A new command in the editor dropdown menu allows you to run an evaluation of all TC properties, and show the result in a read-only TC editor. Thereby you can easily see the actual values of TC properties that will be used when the TC is built.
These were a few of the many improvements in RSARTE 2018.12. For more information about the release, see this web page.
