About the V2/V3 Migration Path
The previous stable release (“old stable”) “v2” comes with a huge variety of software components. The latest major revision “v3” was released “stable” in March 2018. The whole internal structure has been re-organized to latest Eclipse and modeling technologies while migrating a lot meta-models and code-generators. From a user point-of-view the transition is a major improvement in usability and feels like “just another version” with some necessary adoptions. As of 2018, all major features of the SmartMDSD Toolchain have been sucessfully migrated to v3. The SmartMDSD Toolchain itself can be used to develop components and compose systems.
About 20 software components of the v2 toolchain are in the queue to be migrated such that they become usable in the latest stable release and extend the already existing set of v3-components.
