New features of the meta model import now means full support for incremental extensions of a SystemWeaver meta model, through XML import:

  • Update the list of default attributes for an existing item type
  • Update the formatted text descriptions of types (item/part/attributes)
  • Update the detailed information of attribute enumeration types (i.e., the colors and value descriptions)

In addition, the XML generation now supports generation of the format used for the path expression of Computed attributes (i.e. zipped and uuencoded CDATA) from Text format, using the new <AttributePathData> tag, meaning that complete SystemWeaver meta models can be generated by the SystemWeaver XML view, and with the improvements listed above, also imported as complete meta models, with no need for subsequent hands-on modifications.
