yWorks releases version 2.7 of the graph visualization library yFiles for Java.

With this release, yFiles for Java adds comprehensive support for Swimlane diagrams comprising visual representation, user interaction, and support for automatic layout.
So-called local views enable displaying specific information related to selected nodes or edges, like, e.g. neighborhood or contents of folder nodes.

Also, GraphML support is greatly improved and now an integrated part of yFiles for Java.
Improved handling of orthogonal edge paths and new snap lines functionality further simplify interactive diagram editing.
