If there are lots of news, it must be EclipseCon Europe! (hint: it is!)
Today’s news is about my support for the OMG’s Business Process Model and Notation, or BPMN: It is now supported on my Oxygen version!
Do you want me to help you model a business process? Then I invite you to try my updated Papyrus BPMN v0.9.1 feature (implementing BPMN 2.0) available in the Eclipse Marketplace.

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 😉
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.
Although the Papyrus for Real Time (Me-RT) project is not officially on the Eclipse Release Train, that team has indicated, judged on their newly published roadmap.
It should be noted that it is through an initiative of the Papyrus Industry Consortium that these roadmap will become the norm for all the Papyrus product line!
This is a good thing as it should formalise the release schedule for all my variants!
The Papyrus-RT roadmap has also shown us more details about the next two releases:
- Papyrus-RT v0.9 is to be released with Neon.3 in March
- Papyrus-RT v1.0 is to be released with Oxygen in early July
From what I have been told, meeting these deadlines will be feasible, especially as the time between v0.9 and 1.0 will be spent cleaning up the offering for the 1.0 release, with no additional functionality.
All the efforts around me continue to be so interesting!
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!

As for what’s coming, you can see that in the next release’s definition!
