Papyrus-RT in Argentina

Congratulations to my minions, Nicolas Hili, Juergen Dingel, and Alain Beaulieu, for getting their “Modeling and Code Generation for Embedded Real Time Systems with UML-RT and Papyrus-RT 1.0” technical briefing accepted at the 39thICSE!

First Papyrus IC Research/Academia webinar of 2017

If you’ve been following this blog, you already know that I have an Industry Consortium.

And if you looked at the Papyrus Industry Consortium’s (PIC) website, you also know that it has a Research and Academia Committee!

And that committee is known to hold very interesting webinars about various aspects of modeling, open source, and, of course, ME!

SE Trends looks at Papyrus-IM!

Earlier this month, The Systems Engineering Trends blog featured an article from my friend Michael Jastram about one of my variants: Papyrus for Information Modeling (or Papyrus-IM for short). You might remember Michael from earlier this year (see here)

For those who do not know, Papyrus-IM is:

My past and future -An interview

If you are not aware of the Modeling Languages blog, you are missing one of the best sources of up-to-date modelling information on the web!  And I’m not just saying that because of the recent great interview about me!

A rover powered by me!

It appears that Nicolas, apparently a student at Queen’s University (in Kingston, Canada), has been using me and my real-time variant (which, by the ways, recently released a new version ) to drive a rover and do all sorts of neat stuff around it!

Check out some videos he’s made on YouTube:

Papyrus-RT v 0.8.0

Good news!

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.

MARTE 1.2.1

Have you heard about MARTE?

Well, MARTE is the OMG Modeling and Analysis of Real-Time Embedded Systems profile.

Yes, it’s a mouthful, but if you are interested in the nitty-gritty of embedded systems, it can be very useful!

Here’s a short message from one of my minion about it:

We are pleased to announce that the MARTE feature has been transformed into a Papyrus Component. The MARTE 1.2.1 release, for Eclipse Neon, can be downloaded from [1]. We advise you to uninstal4l any previous version of MARTE beforehand.

Me as text?

Over the last few days, a large group of my minions and admires met in Sweden at EMD2017 to talk about me…in all my incarnation.

One of the most polarizing discussion was about whether I should stay graphical or whether I also needed to be textual. For those who do not know, I am a UML-based modeling tool and therefore graphical by nature.

However, some of my minions think that I would be more usable if I also allowed them to create/edit models using text (just like this posting, but in a model instead of a blog post.
