First of all let me start by saying this tool is absolutely impressive and very, very useful

I've found a discussion in the forum about the possibility of describing parallel messages.

Apparently the functionality was partially available, but unfinished. Key part was agreeing on the syntax.

I've tried the functionality on latest build and it seems to be still there:

par2
     Alice -> Bob: Authentication Request
else
     Charlie-> Bob: Authentication Request
end

So, is there a decision on the syntax?

Is there a way of removing the box boundary? (or making it less obvious)?

Thanks

Julian

Hello,

It took several months, but we have started to work on the subject.

(see http://plantuml.com/teoz.html )

Your feedback will be appreciate!

Nevermind. It was missing linefeed again...

I tried this but I cant seem to make it work.

@startuml

!pragma teoz true
Alice -> Bob : hello
& Bob -> Charlie : hi
@enduml

I just get standard result, not parallell lines...
