* Transparency
* optional OGDF based automatic layout plug-in
Providing a bunch of automatic graph layout algorithms based on OGDF (www.ogdf.net)
See plug-ins/layout/readme.txt for build details.
* Transparency (aka. Alpha support)
Almost every place where a color can be selected now also allows to
choose the transparency value. If the the plugin/importer/exporter does
not support transparency, it will try to emulate (GDK renderer) or just ignore
the transparency.
* Improved clipboard support
- global clipboard copy (selected) support, that is for every copy within
Dia the selection can be rendered as bitmap with diplay scale if another
application asks for it. All attempts to find a common vector exchange
format via clipboard were failing.
- Edit/Paste Image to either replace the pixels of a selected image or
add a new image to the diagram
* Embedded Images
- images from clipboard don't have a filename, embedded by default
- embedded image support for shapes, SVG, DXF, VDX
* Object alignment algorithms improved
- there is a new command "Align connected" aligning on the coneected
connection points, not the object bounding box.
- all align/spead-out commands now filter out connected objects (i.e. the
objects which will be moved as a side-effect).
- all align/spread-out commands are now filtering on connected objects (i.e.
leaving out the objects which will be moved as a side-effect).
* Text fitting options
* Text fitting options for Flowchart objects
- Always: grow and shrink object based on it's text content
- When Needed: only grow objects when text content does not fit (old default)
- Never: text space and object shape are completely independent
* Transformations: Groups can be scaled and rotated. This limited support for object
transformations can only be exploited with a limited number of
renderers, but SVG, PNG, PDF (via cairo), WMF (win32 only) and
* Transformations: Groups can be scaled and rotated.
This limited support for object transformations can only be exploited with some
of the existing renderers, but SVG, PNG, PDF (via cairo), WMF (win32 only) and
plain SVG are fully supporting transformations. (bgo#59880, bgo#100886)
* object meta info possible since 0.97 finally got an editor

- sortable by name or typename
- tooltips showing more detailed information about the objects at hand
* new object "Diagram as Element" allows to embbed diagrams
* more color for SADT/IDEF0 objects

* update of VDX plug-in
- in-memory base64 encoding for export case
- line width issue with import (round-trip)
- transparency/alpha support for export and import
- text alignment corrections
- use NoLine=1 to avoid extra lines
- fix <Text>, <cp/>, <pp/> and <tp/> tags
- use embedded image rather than temporary file for image
- don't close Polyline with FillPattern=None(0)
- remember shape ID in object meta info
* update of SVG plug-in
- font-size issue with Firefox (SVG contained invalid CSS)
- export images inline if there is no filename
- embedded image support for import
- some more transform support
- retain current point over path split
* update of DXF plug-in
- finally also color-by-layer
- better size by changing scales during import to the reciprocal
- don't complain about 999 comment code
- adding AcDbArc to ARC export makes it work
- respect specialties of SOLID and THICKNESS round-trip
- produce DXF independent of locale
* PyDia inline API documentation overhaul and easier access to it,
see e.g. "<Toolbox>/Help/PyDia HTML Docs"
* LineCaps and LineJoin switchable for Standard objects
* Standard object improvements
- LineCaps and LineJoin switchable for Standard objects
- Standard - Arc: movable center point
* more diagrams describing internal behavior
* allow to render "holes" with some renderers, for details see:

The only user visible change should be less apparently random bugs.
