The SmartMDSD Toolchain v3 is stable and is ready to use to build components and systems. In Detail:
A current focus is put on migrating content to get in the broad: Features, Content, and Pilot applications.
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 (Xtext, Xtend and Sirius) 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.
