Eclipse Layout Kernel 0.5.0

Besides the usual heap of bug fixes and small enhancements, this release addresses the following more major features:

  • A new layout algorithm for placing boxes which can be used to combine several graphs into one drawing.
  • Proper support for self loops in ELK Layered.
  • Added a random graph generator to be used for testing and debugging purposes.
  • A new unit testing framework geared specifically towards testing graph layout algorithms. Has not been enabled yet, though.

Some changes may cause clients to break and may change layout results.
