Description of the additional features

Feature 1. Requirement category

Needs, features, and specifications are the levels of detail classification, abstraction level classification, which is one of the requirement classifications. Regarding this classification, following requests had been heard:
  • "Specification needs to be treated as Enterprise Architect Use Case element"
  • "Enterprise Architect's features are needed to be used"
  • "Classification needs to be differentiated by icon"
To meet these requests, we have introduced a concept of "Requirement Category" to version 4.0.

Feature 2. Attribute filtering feature of requirements in matrix

Matrix view is useful to check the coverage. To make it more useful, along with the package filtering, the attribute filtering is introduced to filter the requirements by attribute.

Feature 5. Change the format of viewing differences in the update log dialog and Baseline dialog.

Differences between pre-change and post change in the update log dialog and Baseline dialog are now viewed in a table format. Until version 3.3, this was described in text, such as "pre-change attribute value -> post change attribute value."
