Good news! The Papyrus Industry Consortium’s steering committee has approved the creation of a “Papyrus Light” addition to the product line!
My insiders have been telling me that work is ongoing on the requirements for this new tool.
Would you like to have a voice? Well you can do so through the Papyrus IC public Tuleap repo’s product management forum! (You may remember my previous post about Tuleap).
A new version of Me for Real Time is now available!
Papyrus-RT 0.8.0 (on Neon no less) is now available for download!
There are many ways for you to enjoy the goodness of this new release, and all can be accessed on the Papyrus-RT Download page.
Have the multiple installation option made your head spin? Are you wondering which installation approach is best for you? Don’t worry, we have a page on our wiki that explains the various installation methods to help you make an informed choice!
Wondering what’s in the release? Just consult the 0.8.0 release notes!
As for what’s coming, you can see that in the next release’s definition!
My version 1.1 was released last June as part of Eclipse’s Mars release. But what do I give you in that release?
This is the first of three blog entries dedicated to that subject. In this entry, I will tell you what is new with me. Tomorrow, I will tell you how I am now better and improved. And the day after, I will tell you how I can help my toolsmiths make me even better!
So let’s start with…
Diagram synchronization support
You can now activate synchronization on your diagram or on part of your diagram so that the graphical representation matches the semantic model.
What you see on the diagram is then always what you have in your model! Change the model, and the diagram changes to display the new information, or remove what was deleted.
See a sample video on this feature.
Modeling assistants dedicated to your language
Modeling assistants are popup shortcuts that help you create new elements in the diagram. You can now create in Papyrus a model of your diagram assistants for your own profile, and load them into your running Papyrus instance for a live test.
These are great for users to quickly create diagrams and models without having to constantly go back to the tool palette.
You can now define and use hierarchical tables that let you see any custom structure corresponding to UML2 metamodel, or even your own structure
Great stuff, isn’t it?
More to come tomorrow, when I’ll tell you about my capabilities that are now better and improved!
