Version 3.14 of the free diagramming tool yEd released!

New in this version is the One-Click Layout service that takes you only a single mouse click to nicely arrange a diagram: One-Click Layout analyzes the diagram, and then chooses and runs for you an automatic layout algorithm!
The new series-parallel layout algorithm lends itself perfectly for a special group of diagrams that often arise in circuit diagrams and flowcharts.

Version 3.13 of the free diagramming tool yEd released!

New in this version is an enhancement to the Directed tree layout to automatically recognize and then arrange side-by-side multiple parents of a node.
Also, the JREs that are installed by the Windows and Linux installers have been updated to Java 8.

Version 3.12 of the free diagramming tool yEd released!

New in this version is functionality to abort lengthy calculations of automatic layout algorithms.
Also, there are new placement options in Balloon style tree layout and the 'Select Elements' tool provides new selection support for labels.

Version 3.11 of the free diagramming tool yEd released!

This version introduces a new layout algorithm for radial layout that places nodes in a concentrical fashion. Also, import of Excel spreadsheet files has been enhanced to support group nodes.

Version 3.10 of the free diagramming tool yEd released!

This version introduces a new edge routing algorithm that can generate orthogonal as well as octilinear edge paths. The hierarchical layout algorithm features new support for octilinear edge paths, too.
The new version also brings a new drag 'n' drop edge split gesture to insert a node into an edge in the canvas and provides new support for scrolling the canvas using the mouse wheel.

Version 3.9 of the free diagramming tool yEd released!

This version introduces new label models that combine free placement with support for interactive snapping and provide convenient label alignment and label auto-rotation support.
It also brings enhancements to the GEDCOM import to support additional file encodings and auto-import of common data records, and adds new palette symbols from the BPMN 2.0 specification.
Additionally, the automatic layout now also features a new layout algorithm for flowchart diagrams.

Version 3.8 of the free diagramming tool yEd released!

New in this version is initial support for import of shape stencils from Visio® XML files.
The yEd Graph Editor manual and a new yEd forum are now available online.

Version 3.7 of the free diagramming tool yEd released!

This version brings extensive new support for adding and editing custom symbol palettes and new support for importing symbols from an Internet icon search engine. A powerful new tool enables turning user-defined custom data of graph elements into visual properties like line width, fill color, label text, width, line type, etc.
Also, a new section in the Palette tool window adds high-quality Entity Relationship symbols and Crow's Foot connections.

Version 3.6.1 of the free diagramming tool yEd released!

New in this version are edge labels that stay parallel to their corresponding edge segments even if the slope of the segment changes. A new edge routing algorithm generates orthogonal, bus-style edge paths, and context views can be saved as diagrams of their own.

Version 3.6 of the free diagramming tool yEd released!

This version features a new dedicated automatic layout algorithm for BPMN diagrams and brings enhanced label-related functionality. The user interface has been improved and supports, for example, selection cycling of overlapping graph elements.

2010-05-04

Version 3.5 of the free diagramming tool yEd released!

This version brings support for import of Microsoft Excel® files to create graphs, as well as a new section in the Palette tool window that adds high-quality symbols for the Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN).
Furthermore, arbitrary, user-defined properties for nodes and edges of a graph and the graph itself are supported. The new properties are displayed in the Properties view and are accounted for when saving and loading graphs (GraphML file format).

2009-10-08

Version 3.4 of the free diagramming tool yEd released!

This version brings comprehensive support for Swimlane diagrams which comprises visual representation, user interaction, and support for automatic layout.
New swimlane nodes provide row and column representations for swimlanes to which nodes can be added, and a dedicated Swimlane layout algorithm automatically arranges Swimlane diagrams.

2009-07-31

Version 3.3 of the free diagramming tool yEd released!

This version brings support for so-called snap lines that enable instant alignment of graph elements, which make editing a diagram easier than ever, and for interactively creating and editing orthogonal edges.
Also, a new mechanism that allows for direct feedback has been added to yEd.

Version 3.2 of the free diagramming tool yEd released!

This version supports a new diagram export option "HTML Flash Viewer" that combines a GraphML file with an Adobe® Flash® Player-based viewer for its display.
Also, a new section "Current Elements" in the Palette tool window shows representatives of the current kinds of nodes and edges from the displayed graph.
