Message The ArgoUML team is pleased to announce the release of ArgoUML 0.20 with
support for UML 1.4, Sequence Diagrams, AndroMDA, and many bug fixes and
smaller features.

The full announcement of ArgoUML 0.20 is available at
http://argouml.tigri​s.org/servlets/NewsI​temView?newsItemID=1​451 including
important information for users who are upgrading from previous versions of
ArgoUML. The download page at
http://argouml.tigri​s.org/download/relea​se020.html includes both Java Web
Start and locally installable versions of the kit.
Highlights of the new release include:

. UML 1.4 - Enhanced extensibility features of UML 1.4 including multiple
Stereotypes per ModelElement, Enumerations, and enhanced TaggedValue

. Sequence Diagrams - a completely new Sequence Diagram implementation

. AndroMDA compatibility - AndroMDA is an open source MDA tool which can
generate code of a variety of types, up to entire applications, from the UML
1.4 models created by ArgoUML. http://www.andromda.org/

. Improved interoperability - this version reads and writes XMI files
compatible with a wider variety of tools. UML 1.3 & 1.4 using XMI 1.0, 1.1,
& 1.2 are read and UML 1.4/XMI 1.2 is written.

. JMI (JSR-40) support - A shiny new model subsystem using the NetBeans
Model Data Repository (MDR) implementation of the Java Metadata Interface.
While largely transparent to users, it will allow easier upgrades to later
versions of UML.

. Quality - Over 400 bugs have been fixed for this release. (Help find the
new ones that we've replaced them with!)

. Visual enhancements - a fresh new splash screen and support for Java 5
look and feel

. Usability enhancements - improved drag-and-drop and multiple selection

We expect a relatively short development cycle for the next release, so let
us know immediately (via our issue tracking system at
http://argouml.tigris.org) if something doesn't work quite right or your
favorite feature is missing.
