Summary: Acceleo 2.7.0 is out!
Acceleo 2.7 has just been released. The Acceleo profiler has been improved in particular when generating from big models. A template extender was added; it allows to explicitly extend a template from an Acceleo module. Custom services can now be added as a system services. Several fixes were done on the models import from the Enterprise Architect modeler. Concerning the Acceleo modules, the C and Java modules have been improved. A new build is available on the update site.
Here is the new and noteworthy :
As you may know, the next major release of Acceleo is currently implemented and this new version is an official Eclipse foundation project. The most obvious change of this new version is the overhaul of the syntax as we now follow the OMG standard "MOF Model To Text Language" (MTL) based on OCL. In incubation since a little more than two years within Eclipse, Acceleo 3.0 is coming soon with the Eclipse Helios train (June 2010). Acceleo 3.0 already supports a level of functionality close to its 2.x stream.
"Pre-release candidate" milestone could already be tested here :
Do not hesitate to give feedback for this version through the mailling-lists, the bug-tracker or the web forum, etc. Note that Acceleo 3.0 users should use the Eclipse M2T newsgroup! (Please, remember to prefix the subject of your Acceleo-related posts with [Acceleo].)
