On behalf of the team I am happy to announce that Sirius 0.9.0, the
first release for us as an official Eclipse project, is now available .
You can get the code from the following update sites:
They all correspond to the exact same source code, but built against a
different base Eclipse version. We recommend you use the update site
corresponding to you Eclipse version (it can prevent some issues with
broken binary compatibility between releases). Note that Sirius depends
on a version of the Guava library which is not available by default from
a Juno install. You need to add the Orbit update-site at  if you want
to install Sirius on Juno.
The download page at  and the Eclipse Marketplace entry  now point
to the Kepler version of this release.
The release notes for 0.9.0 are available in the embedded documentation
and on the web at . They contain important instructions on how to
migrate to Sirius for users of Obeo Designer.
Sirius 0.9 is designed as a "pivot" release to serve as an intermediate
step for existing users who will want to migrate from Obeo Designer to
Sirius 1.0. Version 0.9 is functionally equivalent to Viewpoint 6.10
(the previous name of the technology), the last version developed
internally by Obeo and Thales. The only differences are in the names and
in the support in Sirius 0.9 for automatic migration of user models (the
*.odesign and *.aird files) into the Sirius namespace.
The team is now focusing on version 1.0, which will be released next
June as part of the Luna release train. The main themes for the 1.0
- better modularization and APIs;
- performance and scalability;
- ease of use for new adopters.
Milestone releases towards 1.0 will be provided following the release
train schedule .
Thanks to all the project members for their work on this release.
