v4.3.c.Release (15-MAR-2024)

Context patterns and associated tables, plugin methods, and browse hierarchy extensions to expose key model relationships.

This release adds some useful views and browsers, particularly around relationships between diagrams and requirements. For example, what requirements are present on which diagrams and vice versa. The browse hierarchy for requirements and diagrams required a bit of a workaround to show traceability on the owner of the activity/statechart but this seems to work well and acts to aggregate relations to the intrinsic owner anyway.

v4.3.b.Release (26-JAN-2024)

Welcome to 2024!

This release has some incremental improvements and was primarily cut to enable wider testing of new auto-package diagram population to make it easier to build navigation into the project browser, plus a useful table for reviewing requirements of function blocks in the context of the subsystems they are allocated to.

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).

V4.3.b.PreRelease (26-JAN-2024):

0803 19-JAN-2024: ExecutableMBSE: Loosen software design package modelling so that you can hierarchically decompose software components (F.J.Chadburn)

0804 19-JAN-2024: ExecutableMBSE: Allow software components to own full, i.e. standard, ports (F.J.Chadburn)

0805 24-JAN-2024: ExecutableMBSE: Add new Subsystem to Function Block Requirements table for system architecture and subsystem packages (F.J.Chadburn)

0806 26-JAN-2024: ExecutableMBSE: First implementation of new Package Diagram - Index auto-creation capability and associated properties (F.J.Chadburn)

0807 26-JAN-2024: ExecutableMBSE: Ensure that Package Diagram - Index auto-creation properties are taken from package, rather than project, level (F.J.Chadburn)
