Segment decorator

A new decorative element has been added for connectors to indicate the flow of a connection over another connector or segment.

Scrolling performance

Tree Grid


The tree grid control now supports filtering nodes programmatically with various filter-level options.


Icon settings in Excel-to-PDF conversion
