details :

  • new rendering mode for the meta nodes: the meta nodes can now be rendered faster using Qttextures. This mode is available through the context menu of a node-link view.

  • management of graph attributes in the undo/redo mechanism: the graph attributes updates are now taken into account by the undo/redo mechanism. Any kind of data types can be managed through this extension.
  • edges rendering improvement: the rendering of the edges using Bezier curves or splines has been improved.
  • better support of 64 bits platform: on 64 bits Linux platform, the installation of plugins in a lib64 directory is checked.
