QVT Operational component is an implementation of the Operational Mappings Language defined by the OMG standard specification (MOF) 2 Query/View/Transformation.
This release will spend efforts on supporting QVT 1.2 OMG Standard ( in part related to Operational language.
Improvements of  QVTo engine compilation and execution efficiency are also goals of this release.
API Certification: 

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

Architectural Issues: 

The QVTo project can be separated in different parts:

  1. The stand alone QVTo parser
  2. The stand alone QVTo interpreter/executor with full support for BlackBox libraries
  3. The tooling with the editor, the debugger, etc
  4. Additional tooling like QVTo Code Coverage tooling
Security Issues: 

There is currently no security issue as far as QVTo is concerned.

Non-Code Aspects: 

The build uses Buckminster on the Qvt-oml HIPP.

~2000 tests are launched on regular basic that cover all aspects of provided functionality (parser, executor, standalone, UI editor/completion, debugger, etc.). 

Usability Details: 

QVTo Editor is conforming to the Eclipse user interface guidelines.

The debugger exploits the standard debugger framework.

Other tooling uses standard widgets.

End of Life: 

There are no specific end of life concerns for this release.
