  • Add a needsItemBuilder method to Renderer in Preview API. This helps to avoid building unnecessary items while refreshing preview.
  • Preview API changes: Added a getDisplayName to Renderer and support for extending default preview renderers. Added a renderer manager to preview controlled with new methods in PreviewModel and PreviewController.
  • Add a local scale flag in Ranking API. The value can be set from theRankingController.
  • Add RangeFilter interface in Filters API to help create range filters. The filter system now automatically manages the range values and bounds. The Range object now also supports exclusive intervals.
  • Add a new AttributableFilter filter type. This is useful for filters manipulating Attributable objects regardless whether they belong to a node or edge. Also note new useful abstract plugin implementations have been added to the FiltersPlugin module. Use AbstractFilter for any filter and AbstractAttributeFilter for filters based on attributes. Filter builders are also provided.
  • Update to Netbeans Platform 7.1 and it's new perspective system. The PerspectiveMember SPI has to go away and will break compatibility. Top components now directly declare the perspective they belong to in the @TopComponent.Registration annotation, for instance roles = {"overview"} for the Overview perspective.
  • Add a REPLACE_COLUMN event type in AttributeEvent.
  • New Timeline API exposed as a stable API. Th API controls the Timeline UI component and the animation framework.
  • Add a new TIME_FORMAT event in DynamicModelEvent. The event is triggered when the time format is initialized.
  • Add a getGraphTable() in the AttributeModel. The GraphView elements can also have attributes using the same system as nodes and egdes. The data can be accessed through the Graph.getAttributes() method.
