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.
