TODO Integrate release notes as a list of tickets directly from Jira? SCCharts do that, seems good to me.

Major changes

KLighD has now moved out of the KIELER Pragmatics Project and is now a standalone project hosted on GitHub and had a first release there. For more information on that, visit the official KLighD GitHub page.


  • UML Sequence Diagram Editor (I don't think this was ever released properly?)
  • KIELER Editor for Graphs (KEG)
  • remaining Remaining KLay parts (These were only dev plug-ins)
  • KIELER Ptolemy Browser (Was moved to GitHub)
  • KWebS
  • Graphs Hierarchical Views (Only dev plug-ins?)
  • Kaot, kgtee, moml, sccharts Formats (Only dev plug-ins?)
  • Piccolo Mirror
  • All Remaining Tests (Have never been released)

With the major part of KLighD being moved and discontinuing a lot of smaller projects, an interesting point is to look at what is left the Pragmatics project:

  • Layout Configuration DSL
  • Formats Plugins plug-ins to convert between graph formats
  • Graph Analysis
  • Syntheses and supporting code for graph structuresLayout using OGDF
  • OGDF mirror
  • GraphML mirror
  • Solvers for optimization problems regarding layout
  • Graph generator for test caseslayout support
