i'd like to differenciate iuml code based on the PlantUml version used. Is it possible?

such as:

!if %PLANTUML_VERSION% >= 1.2017.12
    <new code>
!else
   <legacy code>
!end

It's not possible in official release, but in last beta:

You can have:

@startuml
title this is %PLANTUML_VERSION%
alice -> bob : hello
!if %PLANTUML_VERSION% > 1201713
alice -> bob : A
!else
alice -> bob : B
!endif
@enduml

Unfortunately, this is not working with "old" release.

Thanks for the suggestion!

Hello,

Could you add !if in the PlantUML keyword file generated with -language?

Thanks
