Project: 
Release: 

2.0.0

Description: 

Papyrus 2.0 improvements will be focussed on the following topics:

  • DSML-related facilities (including customizability and extensibility)
  • Usability and ergonomy
  • Perfomance and stability
  • Table-based editors (including support for hierarchical tables)
  • Team work (including model diff/merge and connection with CDO)

In addition, some important architecture changes will happen:

  • Better separation of runtime vs UI plug-ins, to allow headless execution
  • Better separation of the various components layers, to allow modular builds

These changes will affect all libraries depending on Papyrus. A migration guide will be provided when the changes are integrated. See Bug 485220 for more details: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=485220

Architectural Issues: 
  • Dealing with the GMF runtime lack of updates and non-regresison tests, essentially on the last M6-M7 High DPI support from SWT. Thanks to the people who handled the bug fix!
  • Still based on the compatibility layer for Eclipse 4

 

 

Security Issues: 

No security issues known

Non-Code Aspects: 
  • User documentation and Toolsmith documentation to be reorganized on the last days of the release candidates
End of Life: 
Standards:
