MDT Professional Edition 4.0 upcoming!

We're currently working on the next version of Magik Development Tools. The upcoming MDT Professional Edition 4.0 will include the following new features:

  • a refactoring action that allows renaming all occurrences of a chosen Magik element in the editor;
  • new actions that allow searching for all occurrences (references and/or declarations) of a Magik element in a file, module, project or workspace;
  • a refactoring action that allows renaming all or just a few matches of the occurrences search.

You will get a chance to see the new functionalities for yourself at the Smallworld User Group 2018 conference.

We hope to meet you there!
