Public API and Backward Incompatible Changes

  1. Added new types of annotations for Diagrams (Watermark, Point)

    List<AnnotationInfo> annotations = new ArrayList<AnnotationInfo>();
        
    // Area annotation with 2 replies
    AnnotationInfo areaAnnnotation = new AnnotationInfo();
    areaAnnnotation.setCreatedOn(new Date());
    areaAnnnotation.setType(AnnotationType.Area);
    areaAnnnotation.setBox(new Rectangle(200, 114.5f, 282.3f, 103.7f));
        
    // Polyline annotation
