<release projectid="modeling.mdt.uml2" version="5.3.0"/>
This document lays out the feature and API set for the
next release of the Eclipse Unified Modeling Language 2.x (UML2)
Project, version 5.3.0. This project plan inherits from the Modeling
Project Plan, which should be referenced when consulting this
individual project plan.
The release deliverables have the same form as is found in most Eclipse projects, namely:
<html:li>UML2 source code release, available as versions tagged "R5_3" in the project's git repository.</html:li>
<html:li>UML2 SDK (includes runtime, sources, examples, and documentation) (downloadable and update site).</html:li>
<html:li>UML2 runtime binary distribution (downloadable and update site).</html:li>
<html:li>UML2 stand-alone binary distribution (downloadable).</html:li>
<html:li>UML2 tests</html:li>
Release milestone occurring at roughly 6 week intervals and follow the
Platform milestone releases by approximately 1 day; that is, until the
final 4.7 release of the Platform, upon which UML2 and other projects
will release simultaneously. As UML2 is a dependency of numerous
other projects, UML2 will deliver its milestones within one day of
the Eclipse Platform. It is anticipated that UML2 will synchronize its
milestones with the Oxygen milestone schedule.

UML2 will produce update releases to align with the Neon.1, and Neon.2, and
Neon.3 releases, that includes the Eclipse Platform 4.6.1, 4.6.2, and 4.6.3
releases. UML2 may produce interim update releases in addition to these in
order to satisfy clients requests.

<html:li>Wednesday, December 21, 2016 - UML2 5.2.2 maintenance release (Neon.2)</html:li>

In order to remain current, each Eclipse release targets reasonably
current versions of the underlying operating environments. The Eclipse
Unified Modeling Language 2.x (UML2) project depends upon on the
Platform and other projects, which are mostly "pure" Java. The 4.7
release of the Eclipse Platform Project is written and compiled
against versions 1.6 and 1.7 of the Java Platform APIs, and targeted to run on
version 1.6 of the Java Runtime Environment, Standard Edition. UML2
will target the same Java version as EMF, which currently also requires
Java 6. Eclipse Platform SDK 4.7 will be tested and validated on a
number of reference platforms. UML2 will be tested and validated
against a subset of those listed for the platform.
The Eclipse Platform is designed as the basis
for internationalized products. The user interface elements provided
by the Eclipse SDK components, including dialogs and error messages,
are externalized. The English strings are provided as the default
resource bundles. As a result, the UML2
project will provide English strings in its default bundles and be
localized to a subset of those locales offered by the Platform. This
plan will be updated to indicate which locales will be provided and
the time frame for availability.
Compatibility of Release 5.3: The UML2 project
will be developed in parallel, and released simultaneously, with the
following projects. As stated above, each milestone release of the
UML2 project will be compatible with the
corresponding milestones for each of these projects, and delivered the
appropriate offset.
<html:li>Eclipse Platform SDK version 4.7</html:li>
<html:li>Eclipse Modeling Framework (EMF) version 2.13</html:li>
Therefore, the UML2 initial release will be
compatible with these versions and will publish binary and source
compatibilities with migration guides on subsequent releases.
A list of project requirements and agreed upon
implementation time frames is found in this document. For the
milestones listed in this document, a set of overall themes is used
to indicate what major set of functionalities is to be concentrated
on for each. These themes are presented below, while the requirements
document and associated Bugzilla entries are left to those wanting
more detailed information on each.
<theme name="Community Support">
The UML2 project has a proven track record of quality and reliability.
Service and support will take priority over new development work; commitments and schedules are subject to arbitrary change, slippage, or even deferral.
