Logizian (formerly BP-VA) 2.1 Release Notes

Release Date: August 1, 2007

Branch and Tag Support in VP Teamwork Server

Other than primitive revision control and collaboration, you can also manage your modeling project with branches and tags with Teamwork Server. Tags are used to mark milestones or release-quality projects, so used to keep your work isolated from any changes. Branches are separate lines of development isolated from the main line, to avoid making unstable changes to the main line. Once the changes are stable enough the branch can be merged back into the main project (the trunk). Branching from a project can keep the modeling going on while the core project is kept stable.

Branch and Tag Support in Subversion

Other than primitive revision control and collaboration, you can also manage your modeling project with branches and tags through Subversion integration. Tags are used to mark milestones or release-quality projects, so used to keep your work isolated from any changes. Branches are separate lines of development isolated from the main line, to avoid making unstable changes to the main line. Once the changes are stable enough the branch can be merged back into the main project (the trunk). Branching from a project can keep the modeling going on while the core project is kept stable.

Branch and Tag Support in CVS

Other than primitive revision control and collaboration, you can also manage your modeling project with branches and tags through CVS integration. Tags are used to mark milestones or release-quality projects, so used to keep your work isolated from any changes. Branches are separate lines of development isolated from the main line, to avoid making unstable changes to the main line. Once the changes are stable enough the branch can be merged back into the main project (the head). Branching from a project can keep the modeling going on while the core project is kept stable.

Spell Checking

The Spell Checking feature supports spell checking in all inline editing, as well as in Textual Analysis. We support in-place editing of misspelled words, simply by right-clicking your mouse instead of using the complex spell-check box. Spell-check provides intelligent suggestions for words, and you can add your own words into your personal dictionary.

Remembering Tree States

There are many different panes and trees in Logizian (formerly BP-VA). Different trees provide a different view point of the project, and you can browse or search and locate models in different trees, or focus on a specific level of tree in your project. In this new version Logizian (formerly BP-VA) will remember your opened and selected tree nodes even if you exit and restart the application.

Path Completion

Modeling requires a user to use and deal with files all the time, especially when choosing a workspace or opening a project or generating reports. There are two ways of choosing a file or a directory. One by using the path completion feature. The second way is by directly browsing through folders using the file chooser button.
