yWorks releases version 2.15 of the 2.x technology line of yFiles for Java.
This new version brings new automatic layout algorithms and many improvements of layout functionality to the algorithms side.
The new Tree Map layout algorithm and the Tabular layout style make it easy to generate tree maps and simple row/column arrangements, respectively. The Orthogonal layout algorithm has been significantly improved to produce much more compact diagrams with less crossings and shorter edges. New support for regular substructures like trees, chains, and cycles has been added.
New support in the Hierarchic layout algorithm allows to arrange user-defined sub-components of a diagram using different layout algorithms to emphasize special sub-structures.
With this version the feature set of the automatic layouts in the 2.x technology line of yFiles for Java is on a par with yFiles for Java 3.2.
