"Dear TOPCASED users,
TOPCASED 5.1.0 is now available. It is based on the latest Eclipse 3.7 SR1 platform (Indigo).
Note: the official announce on website is not yet present ( will be available on Monday morning) but the “download” link already targets the 5.1.0 release.
Previous TOPCASED 5.0.0 release introduced integration of Eclipse MDT papyrus editors (UML&SysmL) but those editors were not mature.
There has been a lot of work done to fix all major issues and those editors can now be considered as “usable” in TOPCASED 5.1.0.
For any new project we recommend that you have a look at those editors as they provide strong ergonomics improvements (in reference to previous TOPCASED editors), a better support of UML& SysML specification and a very good support for profile customization.
For existing models, we recommend that you continue to use former UML and SysML TOPCASED editors as there is not yet automatic transformation between former graphical format and Papyrus one. This transformation is in progress and should be available in TOPCASED 5.2.0 (planned for January).
Note: You will find two different perspectives to distinguish former and new editors for UML and SysML.
