What I feel like on monday morning: Joy!
On Monday evening I’ll be in Ludwigsburg for EclipseCon! This one is little special as it will be my first one as an official Sirius committer.
I am really happy to introduce you to the new features of the 4.1 release, especially what we did to improve the specifier experience:
Pre-registered service class: starting from Sirius 4.1, by default when you create a new Viewpoint Specification Project, a service class is pre-registered.
Improve the selection of deeply contained Viewpoint Specification Model elements: in a style property customization, the “applied on” field was used to open a popup with all styles of the VSM. As they are identified by type and color (e.g. square blue) a lot of entries are identical, making it difficult to select the correct one. Now it is more user friendly as the mapping container of the style is also presented.
Properly configured I18N: we have completed our work on the internationalization, with the runtime strings being properly externalized. As a result, you can specify keys in your VSM and using a properties file you can have translated labels in your user interface, here in Japanese. Since Sirius 4.1, new Viewpoint Specification Projects are properly configured for I18N.
Specifier editor for properties view description: we provide also the completion, and contribute a new simplified reference widget.
I invite you to join the Sirius team tomorrow morning for the Sirius workshop to experience in live all these new improvements. See you there!
