Apple M1 installation instructions

  • Added features to extend the Bee-Up functionality through the use of Attribute Profiles (see “AutoStart” in manual).
  • Externalized and updated various functionalities, e.g. now supporting HTTPS calls, RDF Export is integrated through the new “AutoStart” feature etc.
  • Added the “UML Class Diagram 2 Skeleton” prototype.
  • Extended Flowcharts with a “Switch” element and various additional improvements.
  • Added a “Custom attributes” table to every element. This can be used when certain values/data should be stored at the objects, but none of the other already available attributes fit. Special procedures are also available to retrieve specific values from the table and sort it.
  • Configuration files are now stored inside the tool and can be edited through the Extras menu.
  • And more.

Bee-Up 1.5:
Download: , , 32-bit or 64-bit,

  • Installation scripts for Linux and macOS created (check of corresponding package for more details).
  • Added functionality for cloning models, available through the “Modelling” component in the “Model” menu.
  • Flowcharts: When executing through the button of the Start Terminal the user will be asked to provide values for all the required variables.
  • Added a “General purpose attribute” to every element and relation. This can be used when certain values/data should be stored at the objects, but none of the other already available attributes fit.
