v4.3.a.Release (20-DEC-2023)

Incremental improvements. Most notable are first introduction of package diagram - index diagram type as an optional basis for improving ability to have a starting point for users to navigate the model when they first open it. Also, ability to allow actors underneath system block so that it's easier to use allocate function function and scenarios where the system interacts with users. This coupled with some tweaks to default display options, and form-based creation of feature function packages, further improves usability of the function flow modeling method.

Now available on github. Don't forget to rename top-level folder SysMLHelper without the version number before moving into Profiles folder. Also ensure that previous profile is not just renamed but removed from Share/Profiles completely (as Rhapsody will open first filename it finds rather than the explicit path to .sbsx).
