  • Added: Ability to play, pause, step and change the speed of the new 3D Discrete Event Simulator.
  • Added: Ability to visualize the diagram being simulated in a 3D representation of the functional model.
  • Added: Ability to identify an Action’s current state during simulation by utilizing a specific color for each wait state.
  • Added: Ability to customize simulation displays with panels which can be shown, hidden, re-sized and sorted in any order.
  • Added: Ability to download the Gantt Chart panel’s display as a PNG file.
  • Added: New ‘Monte Carlo Simulator’ with advanced debugging features made available to all Innoslate users.
  • Added: New ‘Action Report’ accessible via the new 3D Discrete Event and Monte Carlo simulators.
  • Added: New ‘Asset Utilization Report’ accessible via the new 3D Discrete Event and Monte Carlo simulators.
  • Added: New ‘Resource Report’ accessible via the new 3D Discrete Event and Monte Carlo simulators.
  • Added: New ‘Detailed Resource Report’ accessible via the new 3D Discrete Event Simulator.
  • Added: New ‘Simulation Report’ accessible via the new Monte Carlo Simulator.
  • Added: New Guided Tutorials available on the documentation website which illustrate how to use simulation in Innoslate.
  • Added: New Database View ‘Table’ mode which facilitates rapid entity creation and modification.
  • Added: Ability to cut, copy and paste any entity attribute via a text-based representation in Database View in Table mode.
  • Added: Ability to undo and redo changes while using Database View in Table mode.
  • Added: Ability to view your project’s total entity count within Database View.
  • Added: Ability to search your project’s database directly within Database View.
  • Added: New ‘Hierarchical Matrix’ which can be used to view and edit relationships of a specific type from one hierarchy to other entities.
  • Added: New ‘Hierarchical Comparison Matrix’ which can be used to view and edit relationships of a specific type between two hierarchies.
  • Added: Option to disable automatic re-positioning of diagram constructs in the Action Diagram.

Enhancements:

  • Improved: User experience when selecting diagram constructs after zooming in or out of any diagram.
  • Improved: Database View user experience by utilizing a simple pagination system to display entities instead of infinite scrolling.
  • Improved: User experience when switching between Database View modes by harmonizing available toolbar buttons across all modes.
  • Improved: ‘Basic Baseline Output’ report accessible via Documents/Requirements View to include displayed attribute columns.

Bug Fixes:

  • Fixed: Issue which intermittently caused placement of diagrams constructs to not save in the Use Case Diagram.
  • Fixed: Issue which caused the ‘Manage Projects’ dedicated page to fail to copy an existing project.
  • Fixed: Issue which caused an image to not appear in a DOCX report if another image with the same file name had already been shown.
  • Fixed: Issue which caused diagram constructs to not be properly added to the Action Diagram after using ‘Quick Save’.
  • Fixed: Issue which caused additional line-breaks to be added in the description fields of entities after a diagram was used.
