Sirius 4.0 Gotta Catch ‘Em All

Posted by Mélanie Bats on June 10, 2016

We continue our exploration of the Eclipse Sirius 4.0 new features. Do you remember our previous post about the Scalable Girl? We further improved the SVG rendering to make her even more powerful.

Better SVG rendering


This is a significant improvement. With Sirius 4.0, on a diagram when the user uses the zoom, the rendering of a SVG file has a much higher quality.


Contribute SVG shapes


Sirius provides a basic image style for node mappings, which offers a selection of five different shapes. The new bundledImageShape extension point allows specifiers to provide their own shapes defined in a SVG file like a stencil pack.
