This release is primarily focused on quality improvements during the Photon release cycle.

API Certification: 

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

Architectural Issues: 

The QVTo project is 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. QVTo Code Coverage tooling with JUnit integration support
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.

~3000 tests are launched on regular basic that cover all aspects of provided functionality (parser, executor, standalone, UI editor/completion, debugger, unparsing, etc.). 

Conforms To UI/UX Guidelines: 
Yes (document review in detail)
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.
