This minor release has concentrated on bug fixes and extensibility support for OCL-based languages such as QVT.
The project leadership certifies that the APIs in this release are "Eclipse Quality".
The project is very model-based with increasing levels of auto-generation from models.
The project is prototyping a convergence between models that form part of the OMG OCL 2.5 specification and models that can be used to auto-generate an implementation.
Documentation is available via Wikitext as a PDF monolith, HTML files or Eclipse Help.
The documentation includes examples and tutorials which remain valid after a refresh for Mars.
The build uses Buckminster on the OCL HIPP.
The run-time is compatible with the Xtext from 2.3.1 to 2.10. The incompatible Xtext 2.9 API changes require that Xtext <= 2.8.4 is used to regenerate the QVTd Xtext editors.
OCL Editors are based on Xtext and so follow Xtext practices.
The debugger exploits the standard debugger framework.
Other tooling uses standard widgets.
There are no specific end of life concerns for this release.
