Improvements and API changes
Nevron Diagram for .NET has been integrated with the new geometry objects in the Nevron Presentation Framework. As a result all properties and methods, which required System.Drawing.RectangleF, System.Drawing.PointF and System.Drawing.SizeF structures has been changed to Nevron.GraphicsCore.NRectangleF, Nevron.GraphicsCore.NPointF and Nevron.GraphicsCore.NSizeF. The Nevron.Diagram.NMatrix2D structure has been changed to Nevron.GraphicsCore.NMatrix2DF structure.
This change was made due to needed performance optimizations in the implementation of these fundamental structures and because their current implementation in the .NET framework lacks many important features and properties. One of the major advantages of using the new geometry structures is that the diagram is now better serialized in XML.
