Also an update of the CaseTalk Viewer v2.5.1 has been released to accommodate the changes in the Modeler. An important addition:

CaseTalk Viewer v2.4 got a lot better in the ERD area. New exciting options include support for drawing weak entitites, weak relationships, ánd an additional option to turn on the displaying of the original facttype expressions which lead to this entity.

The CaseTalk Modeler v8.6 contains minor updates and fixes and has become more stable and faster in several areas of use. In regard to the Reducing in the transformations, it is no longer implicitly executed within the Lexicalization ("L") phase. So if you see any unexpected behavious, don't forget to turn on Reducing.

Also CaseTalk now allows your Diagram Window information to be exported to a HTML file. It will contain a clickable PNG, the required Expressions and your Richtext notes.

This is how the Viewer will present weak relations, -types, and documentation:

CaseTalk Viewer v2.3 has received a small update to better support the legacy transformations in the Modeler.

The Modeler v8.3 received a larger feature, for those of you who are working on large models. You can now easily split the current model, based upon an active diagram, and optionally transform this selection.

transform diagram only

By simply dragging facts into a diagram building your selection. Now when you go back to the repository window, leaving this diagram open and active, select "Transform <YourDiagram> only...". CaseTalk will copy the selected facts into a new model (ig file) and immediately start transforming it.

Great stuff for doing incremental delivery or testing, or simply using parts of your bigger business model for smaller implementations.
