Java Runtime Environment (JRE or JDK) version 1.5 is needed!
FreeStyler 4.0 needs Java Runtime Environment (JRE or JDK) version 10!
This version of FreeStyler comes with lots of new features. The freehand capture tool was redesigned and is now capable of moving, deleting, copying and colorizing strokes and nodes. It is now possible to draw dotted lines. Some of the plugins have been enhancend.
This version includes some plugins. This is because of several changes in the general architecture of our tools.
Overview of the Freestyler Modeling Environment¶
FreeStyler is a cooperative and interactive modeling tool which combines different graphical languages being used to structure the content with hand written input. Predefined shapes are provided representing different input types. They help to distinguish various elements in the elaboration and analysis of an issue. The plug-in concept allows for flexibly exchanging and extending the palettes. The workspace contains pages, which are used to structure a FreeStyler document.
