		<ul>
			<li><span class="label label-success">Added</span> An experimental mode to serialize representations in a different file is available with system property 
				<code>createRepresentationInSeparateResource=true</code>. That means all new representations will be saved, by default, in a separate file with *.srm extension.
			</li>
		</ul>
		<ul>
			<li><span class="label label-info">Modified</span> The label alignment of Notes from the Palette has been modified from Juno to Luna or newer versions of Eclipse. The label alignment changed from TOP &amp; CENTER to MIDDLE &amp; LEFT. The initial alignment (TOP &amp; CENTER) has been restored.</li>

		<h3 id="SpecifierVisibleChanges">Specifier-Visible Changes</h3>
		<ul>
			<li><span class="label label-info">Modified</span> The transient layer has been introduced in Sirius 5.0. (Refer to 
				<a href="specifier/diagrams/Diagrams.html#Transientlayer">Sirius Specifier</a> and 
				<a href="user/diagrams/Diagrams.html#transientLayer">Sirius User</a> documentation in Diagram chapter). Transient layer is an additional layer containing only decorations or tools. If you have such layer in your VSM, users may encounter some unexpected behaviors. If the layer is not 
				<em>active by default</em> then it will not be applied when opening your diagram even if it was activated before. If the layer is 
				<em>active by default</em> then it will be automatically applied when opening your diagram. We consider this behavior as a known limitation and an enhancement may be done in a further release. In the meantime, there is a workaround which consists to add a fake mapping (that is any mapping with its fields empty) so that the layer will not be considered as transient.

		<h4 id="Addorg.eclipse.sirius.ui.editor">Add 
			<code>org.eclipse.sirius.ui.editor</code>
		</h4>
		<p>This plugin provides a session editor showing loaded models, representations and viewpoint activation status of the session. It has functionalities allowing to change the viewpoint activation status, to create/remove representations or to load unload external models. The graphical block showing loaded models is integrated with CNF. You can provide content extension to its viewer by using an id matching the pattern 
			<code>org.eclipse.sirius.ui.editor.graphicalcomponents.semanticModelsViewer.contentExtension.*</code>. You also can provide action extension by using an id matching the pattern 
			<code>org.eclipse.sirius.ui.editor.graphicalcomponents.semanticModelsViewer.actionExtension.*</code>. The extension will be selectable/unselectable by using a 
			<code>Customize View</code> button on the models block header.

				<a href="https://wiki.eclipse.org/Sirius/SessionEditor">feedback</a>. That version should be considered in alpha state in terms of stability an UI polish. By default, the new editor will automatically open when a session is opened, but this behavior can be disabled via a new preference in the 
				<em>Sirius</em> category.

			<li><span class="label label-info">Modified</span> The export diagram as images actions are now adapting the output resolution based on the diagram size, this leads to better resolution for small to medium diagrams (and also bigger file) and to an operation which is no longer failing with out of memory errors in case of very big diagrams.</li>

				<ul>
					<li><span class="label label-success">Added</span> 
						<code>org.eclipse.sirius.diagram.ui.tools.api.decoration.SiriusDecorationDescriptorProvider</code> represents a provider able to give the decoration descriptors.

				<code>plugin.propeties</code> file of the 
				<code>org.eclipse.sirius.diagram.ui</code> plugin. This leads to a noticeable increase of the export image size (you can expect a 10 factor on small diagrams) and the method will no longer fail with OutOfMemory errors as bigger diagrams will lead to a lower output resolution. Implementers using this class can override the 
				<code>DiagramEditPartService.getMaximumTotalSize()</code> method to return their own limit or 
				<code>DiagramEditPartService.getExportResolutionFactor(DiagramEditPart, SiriusDiagramImageGenerator)</code> and return 
				<code>1.0</code> to get back to the previous behavior.

		<h3 id="SpecifierVisibleChanges4">Specifier-Visible Changes</h3>
		<ul>
			<li><span class="label label-success">Added</span> Sirius 4.0 introduces 
				<strong>experimental</strong> support for specifying the properties views of your modelers directly from inside the VSM. This feature uses the same dynamic approach as for specifying diagrams, tables and trees, with a very flexible configuration language and no code generation involved (including live preview of any change). As of Sirius 4.0, this feature should be considered in an experimental state with details subject to changes until Sirius 4.1, and is not installed by default. To install it, make sure either 
				<a href="http://download.eclipse.org/releases/neon">the Eclipse Neon repositry</a> or the 
				<a href="http://download.eclipse.org/sirius/updates/releases/4.0.0/neon">Sirius 4.0</a> and 
				<a href="http://download.eclipse.org/modeling/emft/eef/updates/releases/1.6.0">EEF 1.6</a> repositories are available, and then to install the following features (from in the 
				<em>Modeling</em> category of Neon, or 
				<em>Sirius Experimental Features</em> of the Sirius repository ):
				<ul>
					<li>
						<em>Sirius Properties Views &#8211; Runtime Support</em> (
						<code>org.eclipse.sirius.properties.feature.feature.group</code>): needed at runtime for deployed modelers which have properties views defined in their specification.
					</li>
					<li>
						<em>Sirius Properties Views &#8211; Specifier Support</em> (
						<code>org.eclipse.sirius.specifier.properties.feature.feature.group</code>): provides support for editing the configuration model directly inside the VSM editor and the specifier documentation.
					</li>
				</ul>
			</li>
		</ul>
		<p>Once this is done, you can find the actual documentation in the 
			<em>Sirius Specifier Manual</em>, under the 
			<a href="specifier/properties/Properties_View_Description.html">
				<em>Properties View</em>
			</a> section.
		</p>
		<ul>
			<li><span class="label label-success">Added</span> All static strings defined in the VSMs which are visible to the end-user of the modeler, like viewpoint and tools names, can now be internationalized. Simply replace the name with a translation key reference of the form 
				<code>%myUniqueKey</code> in the VSM, and define the value in the 
				<em>Viewpoint Specification Project</em>'s 
				<code>plugin.properties</code> (for the default value), or 
				<code>plugin_XX.properties</code> for locale 
				<code>XX</code>. The underlying mechanism is the same as for Eclipse/OSGi plug-ins, so translations can even be contributed by physically separate plug-in fragments. See 
				<a href="specifier/general/Specifying_Viewpoints.html#translatable_messages">the corresponding section</a> in the documentation for more details.
			</li>
			<li><span class="label label-success">Added</span> It is possible to create 
				<a href="specifier/diagrams/Diagrams.html#filter_with_typed_variable">Typed Variable</a> under Variable Filter.

				<code>org.eclipse.sirius.ext.emf.edit.EditingDomainServices</code> (from plug-in 
				<code>org.eclipse.sirius.ext.emf.edit</code>) has been added with a complete set of service methods to leverage most of the features of the &#8220;EMF Edit&#8221; framework, for example the various 
				<em>Item Providers</em> associated to semantic elements. See 
				<a href="specifier/general/Writing_Queries.html#editing_domain_services">the documentation</a> for details.
			</li>
			<li><span class="label label-success">Added</span> The specifier can now restrict the border node authorized sides. This new option is available in the advanced tab of the border node style. See the 
				<a href="specifier/diagrams/Diagrams.html#authorizedsides">specifier documentation</a> for more details.
			</li>
			<li><span class="label label-info">Modified</span> The use of type literals in operations like 
				<code>filter()</code> or 
				<code>oclIsKindOf()</code> requires to explicitly add the domain meta-models plug-ins to the dependencies of the 
				<em>Viewpoint Specification Project</em>. The documentation has been modified to recommend this.
			</li>
			<li><span class="label label-info">Modified</span> 
				<strong>Warning</strong>: Before this version, a style customization of an 
				<code>EEnum</code> attribute, like 
				<code>labelFormat</code>, worked with a value expression using a Java service returning a 
				<code>EEnumLiteral</code>. It is now forbidden. You must return an 
				<code>Enumerator</code>. The documentation about 
				<a href="specifier/diagrams/Diagrams.html#enum_customization">Styles Customization</a> now details this case.
			</li>
			<li><span class="label label-info">Modified</span> The 
				<code>BorderSizeComputationExpression</code> migration has been corrected to recursively handle the sub container mappings. VSM created or migrated with Sirius 3.1.0, 3.1.1 or 3.1.2 might require a manual modification for the style descriptions of sub container mappings with border size computation equals to 0 as we cannot determine if they were added (or updated) after or before the migration: starting with Sirius 3.1.0, no border will be displayed for a 0 pixel value whereas with older version container always had at least a 1 pixel border.
			</li>
			<li><span class="label label-info">Modified</span> The variable under VariableFilter, previously named &#8220;Variable&#8221;, is renamed to &#8220;Select Model Element Variable&#8221;. It is functionally equivalent.</li>

			</li>
			<li><span class="label label-success">Added</span> A new feature allows to move the edge group (Edge, Label, Border Nodes) if the <kdb>F3</kdb> shortcut is pressed during the edge moving/dragging. This feature is only available for the case of edges with border node as source and target. See 
				<a href="./user/diagrams/Diagrams.html#move_edge_group">documentation</a> for more details.

				<em>Snap to Shapes</em> features are now automatically disabled on Sequence diagrams. As indicated 
				<a href="./user/sequences/Sequence%20Diagrams.html#introduction">in the user documentation</a>, to work correctly, Sirius sequence diagrams must have a tight control on where the graphical elements are placed on the diagram and on their synchronization with the underlying semantic model. Previously, the user had to explicitely disable the snap features.

			<li><span class="label label-info">Modified</span> The 
				<em>Link with Editor</em> behavior has changed. The link with editor was previously unidirectional from the Common Navigator (Model Explorer view or Project view) toward the active representation. Now, when selecting one or several elements in the representation, the corresponding semantic elements are selected in the Common Navigator.
			</li>
			<li><span class="label label-info">Modified</span> The

AQL, and its support in Sirius, is no longer considered experimental, and instead is now the recommended query language to use for new VSMs. Improvements mostly concern better completion and validation, and more precise error reporting. In particular AQL expressions will now be able to display warnings and errors in the Interpreter view. The message displayed in the Interpreter view after an evaluation has also been improved to display the qualified name of the type of the value computed (
				<code>ePackageName::eClassName</code>). The improvements realized can be viewed by clicking on the image below (click to zoom).

		<ul>
			<li><span class="label label-info">Modified</span> Related to the previous point, the projects created by the 
				<em>Viewpoint Specification Project</em> wizard are now configured to use AQL by default (instead of Acceleo 3/MTL before). They depend on 
				<code>org.eclipse.sirius.common.acceleo.aql</code> instead of 
				<code>org.eclipse.sirius.common.acceleo.mtl</code>, and do not have the Acceleo nature anymore (it is not needed by AQL). If you want to use another language in your queries, make sure you set the appropriate dependencies so that the Sirius support for that language will be present at runtime to interpret the queries.
			</li>
			<li><span class="label label-info">Modified</span> The support for containers with vertical or horizontal 
				<em>compartments</em> on diagrams was introduced in Sirius 3.0.0 as an experimental feature. Several improvements and corrections have been done around the behaviors of this feature which is no longer considered experimental. Validation rules and tooltips in the VSM editor are here to help the specifier create a consistent mapping structure.
			</li>
			<li><span class="label label-info">Modified</span> <span class="label label-info">Experimental</span> New, experimental support for recursive 
				<em>compartments</em> on diagrams: the 
				<em>children presentation</em> property of a 
				<em>Container Mapping</em>, which is defined as a 
				<em>compartment</em> (its parent 
				<em>ContainerMapping</em> has a 
				<em>VerticalStack</em> or 
				<em>HorizontalStack</em> 
				<em>children presentation</em>), can now also be set to 
				<em>Vertical Stack</em> and 
				<em>Horizontal Stack</em>. It allows to define complex stacks of 
				<em>compartments</em> mixing both stack directions. While working reliably, this support is marked experimental in Sirius 3.1.0 as there are still some behaviors which do not behave as expected. If you make use of this feature, be aware that some details may still change in future releases, including 3.1.x maintenance releases.
			</li>
			<li><span class="label label-info">Modified</span> You now really have the capability to set the 
				<code>BorderSizeComputationExpression</code> as 0 for style of 
				<code>ContainerMapping</code>. Before Sirius 3.1.0, a size of 0 was interpreted as 1 at runtime. For compatibility reason, all existing 
				<code>BorderSizeComputationExpression</code> equals to 0 for style of 
				<code>ContainerMapping</code> are automatically set to 1 (ditto for results of this expression in representations file for container elements). For 
				<code>ContainerMapping</code>, the default value of 
				<code>BorderSizeComputationExpression</code> for new style is now 1, except for 
				<em>Worskpace Image</em> where the value is 0.
			</li>
			<li><span class="label label-info">Modified</span> The delete command availability computation has been changed. In case of a delete tool, the availability is now computed considering first the precondition of the tool and then the delete authorisation (using 
				<code>IPermissionAuthority</code>) of the potential to delete objects. This is the reverse order of what was done before, and can have performance impacts if the precondition is slow. The specifier will to take care to ensure a good performance for the precondition expression of the delete tool.

		<h4 id="Partialsupportforinternationalization">Partial support for internationalization</h4>
		<p>Sirius 3.1 introduces partial support for internationalization: all literal strings from the runtime part of Sirius are now externalized and can be localized by third parties by providing the appropriate &#8220;language packs&#8221; as OSGi fragments. Note that this does not concern the VSM editor&#8217;s UI, the VSMs themselves, or the parts of the UI inherited from Eclipse/EMF/GEF/GMF and other libraries and frameworks used by Sirius.</p>
		<p>Some API changes were required to enable this. While technically breaking changes if interpreting strictly the OSGi versioning rules, the major version number of the impacted bundles was not incremented as the changes only concern classes that should not impact the vast majority of users. Most breaking changes concern the plug-in/activator classes from each bundle. They are:</p>

				<code>isSnapToGrid()</code> have been added in class 
				<code>org.eclipse.sirius.tests.swtbot.support.api.editor.SWTBotSiriusDiagramEditor</code>. They allow to know the state of the corresponding properties.
			</li>
			<li><span class="label label-success">Added</span> The method 
				<code>org.eclipse.sirius.tests.swtbot.support.api.editor.SWTBotSiriusDiagramEditor.dragWithKey(int, int, int, int, int)</code> (and also 
				<code>SWTBotSiriusGefViewer.dragWithKey</code> and 
				<code>SWTBotSiriusFigureCanvas.mouseDragWithKey</code>), has an additional fifth parameter compared to 
				<code>drag(int, int, int, int)</code> method, to indicate the key code to press during the drag&#8217;n&#8217;drop. It is possible to call this method with 
				<code>SWT.None</code> to obtain the standard behavior of 
				<code>drag</code> method. This method also has a correct behavior for the move of bendpoints of edges.
			</li>
			<li><span class="label label-success">Added</span> 
				<code>org.eclipse.sirius.tests.swtbot.support.api.condition.TopCondition</code>: New condition to wait that top of the edit part is on the expected location.
			</li>
			<li><span class="label label-success">Added</span> 
				<code>org.eclipse.sirius.tests.swtbot.support.api.condition.BendpointLocationCondition</code>: New condition to wait that a bendpoint is on the expected x or y location.
			</li>
			<li><span class="label label-success">Added</span> 
				<code>org.eclipse.sirius.tests.swtbot.support.api.condition.TreeChildrenNumberCondition</code>: New condition to wait that a tree has the expected number of children.
			</li>
			<li><span class="label label-success">Added</span> 
				<code>org.eclipse.sirius.tests.swtbot.support.utils.SWTBotCommonHelper.saveCurrentEditor(Session)</code>: This new method is preferable to 
				<code>saveCurrentEditor()</code> because there is a wait condition to ensure that the save is finished.
			</li>
			<li><span class="label label-info">Modified</span> 
				<code>org.eclipse.sirius.tests.swtbot.support.api.condition.CheckBoundsCondition</code>: This condition now also checks the bounds location if the checkWidth or checkHeight (or both) is false.
			</li>

			<code>org.eclipse.sirius.ext.gef</code>
		</h4>
		<ul>
			<li><span class="label label-success">Added</span> The new class 
				<code>org.eclipse.sirius.ext.gef.query.EditPartQuery</code> has been added. It allows to retrieve all children of the current part.

		<ul>
			<li><span class="label label-success">Added</span> The new class 
				<code>org.eclipse.sirius.ext.jface.viewers.IToolTipProvider</code> has been copied from JFace 3.10 from Luna, so that we can use it with Juno and Kepler too.

		<ul>
			<li><span class="label label-success">Added</span> Two new 
				<code>getIntersection</code> methods have been added in 
				<code>org.eclipse.sirius.ext.gmf.runtime.editparts.GraphicalHelper</code>. They are similar to the existing 
				<code>getIntersection</code> methods, but they consider the nearest point on the figure if there is no intersection.
