    9 This release provides substantial improvements for the user and a serious bunch of under-the-hood improvements for developers. For regular users the highlight is **Implicit Saving**: the user must no longer care about saving; DM automatically ensures nothing is lost. The highlight for power users who create custom data models is the **Type Editor** with support for **Cardinality "Many"** at last. Last but not least 3 external plugins have been updated in order to be compatible with this release.

    1111Improvements: 
     
    1515  The "OK" button just allows the user to say "I'm done with editing". There is no need to press it. 
    1616 (#243). 
    17 * The detail panel's type editor is fully functional. Select a type and press "Edit". You can change the Association type (Composition or Aggregation) and Cardinality (#77). 
     17* The detail panel's type editor is now fully functional. Select a type and press "Edit". You can change the Association type (Composition or Aggregation) and Cardinality (#77). 
    1818* Consolidated data model: the "many" cardinality is now operational. For "many" the detail panel's form generator automatically provide the user with "Add another ..." and "Remove" buttons. Thus, its easy to add e.g. another phone number or email address to a Person topic (#76). 
    1919* Nested detail panel rendering: The detail panel visualizes the composite structure as nested boxes, filled with a distinct color for each nesting-level. This is useful in particular with cardinality "many" (#104). 
     
    2727* Core: An ObjectFactory supports the development of system-near plugins, like e.g. the Type Editor [c57ca5fb][c0034f0c][2b77e475]. 
    2828* The core service accepts update requests in 2 formats: the canonic format and a simplified format. The former contains full topic models and is required for cardinality "many" associations. The latter contains just the topic values and is sufficient for cardinality "one" associations. Within one request both formats can be mixed (#237). 
    29 * The updateTopicType() core service call returns a set of directives [377ed738]. 
     29* The updateTopicType() core service call returns a set of directives. Thus, a client is provieded with detailed hints about how to keep the GUI in-sync [377ed738]. 
    3030* New directive DELETE_TOPIC_TYPE [37c66c51].
