alternative implementaion for PeService.deletePictogramElement() </a></td>
<td class="content">In cases with large pictogram and or domain
models the logic to delete a pictogram element implemented in
PeService so far is slow. This is due to checking and updating all
cross references. In cases where clients know that there are no such
cross references now a new and much faster implementation can be
used alternatively. The old implementation is still the default one.</td>

Diagram Export</a></td>
<td class="content">Graphiti now supports to export any diagram
without the need to hav a diagram open in an editor, view or plain
composite. The functionality can now be triggered programmatically
and included in non-graphical parts of Graphiti-based tools. The
digram will be rendered using the associated diagram type provider
and tool-provided functionality (e.g. images and platform graphics
algorithms) in case the tool is installed in Eclipse. In case no
diagram type provider can be found for a diagram (e.g. because the
tool is not installed) a default one will be used; of course, in
that case any images or platform graphics algorithms cannot be
rendered and a dummy image or shape will be rendered. This change
comes with a minor API enhancement.</td>
