PlantUML is dedicated to offering flexibility in its licensing to cater to the diverse needs of its users. As a result, the software is available under several licenses, allowing users to select the one that aligns best with their preferences and requirements.
The GPL version stands out as it provides a comprehensive set of features, ensuring users have access to the complete capabilities of PlantUML. This version is recommended for those who seek the full experience and functionalities of the tool.
On the other hand, while other versions might lack certain features, such as the
ditaa integration, they remain fully equipped to generate all UML diagrams. This modular approach to licensing ensures that users can choose a version that best fits their project's needs while adhering to specific licensing constraints.
The lastest version is 1.2023.11
PlantUML adheres to the principles of Semantic Versioning. This means that our version numbers convey meaningful information about the underlying changes with each release.
The first part of the version number indicates the major version, followed by the year of the release, and then a number starting at 1 for the release within the year. By following Semantic Versioning, we aim to provide clarity and predictability in our release cycle for our users.
