The following lists out part of the new and enhanced features.

Use Case List
Capture software functions with the help of Use Case List. A use case represents a high level function that yields a measurable result of values. The Use Case List provides a high level view of what the user want to achieve by using the software.

Actor List
The Actor List is where you can record and manage the roles who will be using the system. The goals of actors can be recorded, and be further derived into use cases to use in detailed use case analysis and use case modeling.

Requirement List
Requirement is what your clients want and what your team have to fulfill. It is so important that needs to be managed carefully. The Requirement List provides a well-organized approach in organizing and viewing requirements.

Use Case Notes
When you meet with user in knowing his/her needs, you will be told a lot of information that is relevant and important to the development of the system. The Use Case Note provides you with a notepad for writing down what he/she said in point form. The points collected will be reviewed when deriving requirements, system interactions, etc.

Wireframe support
Rich set of common website components are available for web wireframing, Android phone wireframing, Android tablet wireframing, iPhone app wireframing, iPad app wireframing and desktop application wireframing.

Plan and manage development activity with Tasifier
Keep the development tasks in Tasifier, an agile development friendly task management platform. Tasifier keeps development tasks, related artifacts and the discussion among developers in one single platform.

Supported ArchiMate Viewpoint
Let enterprise architects and stakeholders view different parts of an enterprise architecture according to their responsibilities and interests.

Supported better way to select shapes in container shape
To avoid dragging the container shape when attempting to select shapes inside the container shape, you can temporarily freeze the parent to achieve free selection of children shapes.

Supported selecting classes from referenced project as classifier of instance object
Instances of class can be modeled with instance specification, in UML object diagram. You can specify classifier for instance and starting from version 11.0, you can select classes from referenced project as classifier of instance.

Enhanced the Find feature to search text in nicknames
The Find feature allows you to search a model element, shape or diagram by inputting a search string. Version 11.0 enhanced the Find feature by searching text in both the original and nicknames.

Supported searching in grid
Searching of grid content is available in the grid feature.

Supported showing sub-diagrams in grid
Sub-diagram information can be shown in grid column.

Enhanced Visual History
The Visual History feature allows easy comparison and retrieval of diagram in different revisions. Version 11.0 has enhanced this feature by making 100+ little enhancements. The most noticeable change is the better display of property names.

Supported separating generated .h and .cpp into different folders in C++ round-trip engineering
In C++ round-trip, .h and .cpp files were put in the same output folder. Now, they can be generated to separate folders.

Improved presentation for unique constraint in ER Diagram
Name of unique constraint can now display in entities in ERD.

Supported pattern matching for auto column
Create entity column with the auto column feature. Pattern matching allows you to define auto column with column name like %id, so that columns that ends with 'id' will apply the auto column defined.

Supported setting nullable for auto column
Nullable has been added as a property of auto column.

Supported creating PK and FK when transiting conceptual/logical ERD to physical ERD
The transition feature is enhanced to create primary and foreign key for new entities produced by transiting a conceptual/logical ERD to physical ERD.

Supported containing ORM container by another ORM container
Support better grouping of ORM model elements with nested ORM containers.

Supported specifying annotation for collection in ORM
ORM generates custom annotation specified in class attribute. Now, it supports specifying annotation for collection (association). This feature supports generating annotation for collection by defining it in association role's "Referenced Attribute" property.

Supported Hibernate 4
Enhanced criteria for subqueries, collection property size restriction, collection/association fetch mode, association property restriction on foreign key column.

Supported GregorianCalendar in ORM
Supported the use of java.util.GregorianCalendar in generated ORM

Supported relative JDBC driver file path
Enables the use of relative path in specifying the JDBC driver folder in database configuration

Faster report opening speed in Report Composer
The opening speed of reports in Report Composer has been reduced. The larger the report, the more obvious the improvement is.

Supported page sections in Report Composer
Add sections to report in Report Composer. Each section can define their own page orientation, header and footer.

Supported developing report in Report Composer with project data from referenced project
You can now develop a report by dragging diagrams and shapes onto your report in Report Composer.

Supported "Keep with next" for Microsoft Word report exported from Report Composer
The "Keep with text" option is now available in Report Composer, for users who want to keep content in same page in exported Word report.

Handled the linkage of model element in documentation in impact analysis
Model element linkages can be added to documentation of model elements. To gain understanding of this kind of 'dependency', create a matrix.

Added project-based option for showing data-based gateway marker in BPD
The "X" marker can be shown in data-based gateway optionally. In version 11.0, a project based option is added to serve this purpose.

Supported documenting conditions, actions and rules in decision table
