ME-RT (a.k.a., Papyrus for Real Time, a.k.a., Papyrus-RT) was first presented/announced at EclipseCon North America 2014. In the 1220 days Since then, work my minions have worked tirelessly to finally releasing v1.0 yesterday. Papyrus-RT is now officially out of incubation! This “birth” (Papyrus-RT did break out of the incubation “egg”…) was even announced during the quartery Eclipse Foundation members meeting!
You can find all the nitty-gritty details of this release here.
Congratulations to all my minions from CEA, EclipseSource, Ericsson, Zeligsoft, and all others who have contributed their time, work, and support for all their great contributions in bringing out a new offering in my growing product line!
Hint: it’s open source! The whole tool is, was, and it will continue be free 😉
There was allready an effort under way, named Team Cyperus, to provide commercial support for me, as it was something that industries told my minions was really needed.
Well, it did not take too long for someone elseto see the benefit in supporting me!
Go see their press release about this acquisition!
One of my minions (from Queens’ University) pointed out an interesting document titled “Robotics 2020 Multi-Annual Roadmap.” from Spark -The Partnership for Robotics in Europe.
It is a very interesting read, especially for those, like me, who are involved in the Eclipse PolarSys Rover project and the Papyrus Industry Consortium!
I especially like the following blurbs:
From printed page 248 (go to page 258 in the PDF):
“Model based methods are needed at the core of all complex robot systems and through
the lifecycle. To address increasing complexity, a shift from human-oriented document-driven
approaches to computer-assisted tools and a computer processable model-driven approach is
needed in order to gain from design support processes”
And from printed page 251 (go to page 261 in the PDF):
“Model-driven software development and domain specific languages are core technologies
required in order to achieve a separation of roles in the robotics domain while also improving
composability, system integration, and also addressing non-functional properties”
Many of these aspects are are already part of work that has been one on me.
This is exactly where I can and will make a difference!
Shoutout to my minion GD for making me aware of this!
My minions have finally decided how the beta for Me-RT v1.0 will be conducted.
As I am an open source endeavor, we have limited resources – so let’s use the ones we have!
Do you have questions? Please use the Papyrus-RT Forum, using “#Beta” to identify beta-related questions.
Do you have a short question that can be answered in 140 characters? We’ll monitor Twitter (@PapyrusUML) for the #beta tag.
Do you want to tell us how much you love me? Contact Us!
But be warned that we will only answer questions in the forum or on Twitter!
My minions from Queen’s University are keeping busing with ME-RT!
They will be presenting a paper in Argentina and now they have created an easy way to observe what goes on in a Papyrus for Real Time generated executable!
As a quick reminder, Papyrus-RT is a version of me that enables modeling complex embedded systems with full code generation!
To show you what they have done, my minions created a YouTube Video of the result of their work.
For the upcoming Oxygen release, I am getting a new, improved architecture framework that is aligned with ISO 42010.Now, I’m not (yet) an expert in this, but my minions are! And they have created a nice YouTube video explaining what it does and what it provides to Toolsmiths
Now, I’m not (yet) an expert in this, but my minions are! And they have created a nice YouTube video explaining what it does and what it provides to Toolsmiths.
If you are a toolsmith for Me, hope to become one or are just curious, you must go see it (and the other Me videos on YouTube)!
On Friday, March 31th at 16:00 CET, 15:00 GMT, and 11:00 EDT, the Papyrus Industry Consortium’s (Me-IC!) Research and Academia (“PIC-RAC“) committee will host their fourth webinar of the year.
The topic is on an academic perspective on software product lines with speakers from Østfold University College, University of Passau, and TU Braunschweig.
See this link for the connection information.
As I mentioned in a previous post, Papyrus for Real Time v0.9 is now available for download!
And yes, there is a Beta associated with it…but my minions tell me it is still being setup. I’ve been told something will be announced about this next week, and if you are interested in participating, you can just let me know either in comments on this blog or through Twitter @PapyrusUML. I’ll then let my minions know!
Are you curious about this release? Then have a look at the Release Notes.
On Friday, March 17th at 16:00 CET, 15:00 GMT, and 11:00 EDT, the Papyrus Industry Consortium’s (a.k.a. Papyrus-IC or, as I prefer, Me-IC) Research and Academia committee will host their third webinar of the year. The topic is on an industry perspective on software product lines with speakers from Saab and Pure-Systems. See this link for the connection information.
I just heard, through the minion grapevine, that there will be an official, managed beta for Papyrus for Real Time! Just like the ones for the big-boys commercial tools! I’m so proud of Me-RT!
The beta will be based on Papyrus-RT v0.9, which is planned for release on March 23 (aligned with Eclipse Neon.3), as reported in Papyrus-RT Roadmap: follow the train.
This is exciting! Users will be able to play with me, to give their opinions, to suggest improvements, and, basically, to help me get better!
I will get my product management/development minions to tell me more…and I will, of course, let you know!
Things are getting more and more interesting…
