What’s new in this version?

Built on Eclipse 4.11

Archi is built on Eclipse. The previous version of Eclipse used for Archi was 4.7. Eclipse 4.11 includes many bug fixes and solves some issues for each OS platform. However, Eclipse 4.11 only supports 64-bit operating systems so we can no longer ship 32-bit versions of Archi.

Java 11 is bundled with each version

Archi now bundles a Java Runtime version 11. This has many security fixes and better memory management. We use AdoptOpenJDK.

Optimisations to speed up many actions (delete, rename, find folders, load models, properties window)

We’ve changed some of the internal code to optimise many actions. If you use large models, you should see some speed improvements.

Memory is freed when closing models

After some analysis we found that models were not being freed from memory under certain circumstances. This should now be greatly improved and you’ll notice a difference when opening and closing large models.

Installing plug-ins works differently

Because Eclipse 4.11 no longer supports simply copying plug-in jar files into the “plugins” folder, we’ve had to utilise a different approach. You can either install official Archi plug-ins (these are packaged in a zip file) in the new “Manage Archi Plug-ins” menu item under the “Help” menu, or you can manually copy the jar files into the “dropins” folder.

Bug fixes and features

Mac OS X

Requires MacOS 10.9 or greater. To install, unzip and run the “Archi” app.

Note – when launching Archi on OS X for the first time you may see a dialog box that states that “Archi can’t be opened because it is from an unidentified developer.” Control-click or right click the icon of the app. Select “Open” from the top of contextual menu that appears, then click “Open” in the dialog box. Or you may see the message “Archi is damaged and can’t be opened. You should move it to the Trash.”, to solve this see this.

Linux 64-bit

To install, un-archive and run the “Archi” program file.

Note – the file extension for Linux downloads is “.tgz”. This is to stop Google Chrome from automatically unpacking the .gz file when downloading. If this is a problem, rename the file extension to “.tar.gz”
