THIS IS A DRAFT. Sirius 2.0.0 is not released yet.
Sirius 2.0.0 is a major release which focuses on better usability of diagrams, performance improvements, and better modularity. It also includes extensive automated test suites.
See also [TBD the announce on the mailing list].
It is recommended you use the update-site matching the version of Eclipse you use to avoid potential issues at runtime.
If you want to install the new
org.eclipse.sirius.tests feature, which provides APIs to help create automated tests of Sirius-based modelers, you will need to add the following update-site:
Juno users: Sirius depends on more recent versions of some components that what is available by default from a Juno install. You need to add the following update-sites if you want to install Sirius 1.0.0M7 on Juno:
- Orbit: http://download.eclipse.org/tools/orbit/downloads/drops/R20140525021250/repository/
- Acceleo 3.4 (or 3.5): http://download.eclipse.org/acceleo/updates/releases/3.4/ (resp. http://download.eclipse.org/acceleo/updates/releases/3.5/)
- EEF 1.2 (or 1.3): http://download.eclipse.org/modeling/emft/eef/updates/releases/1.2 (resp. http://download.eclipse.org/modeling/emft/eef/updates/releases/1.3)
Sirius 1.0.0 is compatible with the following versions of Eclipse:
- Eclipse 3.8/4.2 (Juno)
- Eclipse 4.3 (Kepler)
- Eclipse 4.4 (Luna)
New & Noteworthy
The following important issues are present in the 1.0.0 release. They were identified after the code freeze and could not be fixed in time. If possible (i.e. no API break needed), they will be fixed in 1.0.x maintenance releases.
- A formatting issue prevents the "Release Notes" from opening from "Help > Contents > Sirius > Release Notes". You can read them from https://www.eclipse.org/sirius/doc/Release%20Notes.html instead. This will be fixed as part of Sirius 1.0.1.
- #436375 - Semantic models not automatically detected when converting into a Modeling Project. A workaround is to add them manually to the session using the Project Dependencies of the modeling project.
- #437251 - Trying to create a representation while Sirius is not yet initiliazed causes a NullPointerException. A simple (but not obvious) workaround is to switch to the "Modeling" or "Sirius" perspective at least once (which forces the initialization of the required parts of Sirius) before trying to create a representation.
