The 1.8.0 Release will move more logic out of the DomainModelReference into services. This is necessary to be able to change the way DomainModelReferences are described in version 2.0.0. 

We also will deprecate old API and thus mark all classes that will be removed with the 2.0.0 release.

Additionally, the release focusses on stability and consolidation of APIs.

API Certification: 

The project leadership certifies that the APIs in this release are "Eclipse Quality".

End of Life: 

This release will remove most internal use of deprected APIs. Using depreceted API is highly discouraged. 


The number of interactions with the community has increased in newsgroup entries, bug reports and contributions. There are regular blogs about new features of the project.
