Besides the usual bunch of bug fixes, this release adds a number of neat enhancements and feature requests, among them the following:

  • A complete re-implementation of how ELK Layered routes self loops which should fix all of the problems we saw in release 0.5.0.
  • A rectangle packing algorithm which tries to place rectangles efficiently.
  • A number of features geared at layout algorithm developers, such as:
    • A plug-in project template which initializes layout algorithm projects.
    • A new logging framework and views to debug layout algorithms.
    • A proper unit testing framework for layout algorithms.

Some changes may cause clients to break and may change layout results.
