Changelog

Workcraft v3.2.1 (2018-11-01)

Usability improvements

  • Filter for favorite model types in New work dialog. Models can be defined as favourite in Common→New work favorites section of global preferences.
  • Warning when loading work files created by newer versions of Workcraft.
  • Structural checks for Circuit and STG models before proceeding with verification.

Model and tool plugins

  • Digital Circuit plugin
    • Significantly improved Initialisation analyser.
    • On circuit wire routing align first/last control points to adjacent pins.
    • Recognise MUTEX elements on Verilog import.
    • Convert trivial assign statements in Petrify output for technology mapping into BUF instances.
    • Compatibility checks for circuit and its environment before proceeding with verification.
    • Improve deadlock verification for circuits, taking into account that it cannot be reliably checked in case of conformation violation.
  • Signal Transition Graph plugin
    • Verification of STG for output determinacy, i.e. that the STG is not self-contradictory.
    • Verification of N-way conformation for STGs with dummies (previously dummies were forbidden for technical reasons).
    • Corrections for visualisation and .g export of the promised place capacity.
    • In STG simulation highlight arcs with implicit marked place.

Fixes and technical stuff

  • Updated UnfoldingTools backend to support -Fe mode of MPsat – work out the complete trace (including the trailing dummies) to the violation.
  • Command line option to start Workcraft without loading/overwriting user config – this useful for scripting.
  • Global setting Use short header in exported files that allows skipping Workcraft version in the file header (useful for scripting and regression testing).
  • Use external JavaBeans Activation Framework (JAF) for compatibility with the newer versions of JVM (JAF was deprecated in Java 9).
  • Prevent inconsistent state of Property editor.
  • Simplified API for Mathematical and Visual models.
  • Update of help and tutorials.
