Release 6.5.0 of the Toolkit is now available.
We're pleased to announce the availability of a new connector type in 6.5.0 -
Segmented. This connector consists of a set of straight line segments, and can be smoothed to a set of bezier curves. We've also shipped a path editor for this new connector type.
This connector type can be useful for a number of different applications, such as workflow designers, flowchart builders, drawing applications - the list is endless. With the Segmented path editor the user can very easily split/discard segments and drag key points around the canvas.
The connector also supports a "smooth" mode, where the individual line segments are replaced by a set of Bezier splines:
This is how the path looks when the editor has been closed:
To see these connectors in action, take a look at the Segmented connectors demonstration.

Orthogonal connector editor automatically trims any supplied geometry after load, to ensure the internal geometry is in a format that the editor can manage.
jsplumbtoolkit-connector-editors.cssstylesheet was refactored slightly, to introduce common base classes for edge handles, and to use CSS variables.
The controls component now detects the existence - or otherwise - of a Lasso plugin on the associated Surface, and does not draw the mode change buttons if the Lasso is not present.
- Fixed an issue whereby path tracing between groups was failing.
