Hi all.

On behalf of the whole team, I'm happy to announce the official
availability of the Sirius 1.0.0 release, part of Eclipse Luna. With
this release, Sirius is moving out of incubation status. Congratulations
to everyone involved!

== Availability ==

Sirius 1.0.0 final is the same as 1.0.0rc3; there were no changes or
even rebuild since then. It is available from the following update sites:
* http://download.eclipse.org/sirius/updates/releases/1.0.0/juno
* http://download.eclipse.org/sirius/updates/releases/1.0.0/kepler
* http://download.eclipse.org/sirius/updates/releases/1.0.0/luna

They all correspond to the exact same source code, but built against a
different base Eclipse version. We recommended you use the update-site
matching the version of Eclipse you use to avoid potential issues at
runtime.

If you want to install the org.eclipse.sirius.tests feature, which
provides APIs to help create automated tests of Sirius-based modelers,
you will need to add the following update-site:
* SWTBot 2.1.1:
http://download.eclipse.org/technology/swtbot/releases/2.1.1/

Juno users: Sirius depends on more recent versions of some components
that what is available by default from a Juno install. You need to add
the following update-sites if you want to install Sirius 1.0.0 on Juno:
* Orbit:
http://download.eclipse.org/tools/orbit/downloads/drops/R20140525021250/repository/
* Acceleo 3.4 (or 3.5):
http://download.eclipse.org/acceleo/updates/releases/3.4/ (resp.
http://download.eclipse.org/acceleo/updates/releases/3.5/)
* EEF 1.2 (or 1.3):
http://download.eclipse.org/modeling/emft/eef/updates/releases/1.2
(resp. http://download.eclipse.org/modeling/emft/eef/updates/releases/1.3)

== Compatibility ==

Sirius 1.0.0 is compatible with the following versions of Eclipse:
* Eclipse 3.8/4.2 (Juno)
* Eclipse 4.3 (Kepler)
* Eclipse 4.4 (Luna)

== New & Noteworthy ==

The most important changes in this release compared to M7 are:
* #434474: A significant effort has been made to ensure that Sirius
plays well with other GMF-based modelers that share the same extension
mechanisms. In particular, when having both Sirius and Papyrus installed
together they should no longer interfere with each other (with actions
from one visible in the other).
* #435204: As was the case for Sirius 0.9.0, we had to disable the table
printing feature from the final 1.0.0 release, as the Eclipse Paperclips
component we use for this has not been officially released yet.
* #435604, #435753, #435911, #435879, #436427: Many usability
improvements in the VSM editor: better and more consistent menu labels,
more logical order or elements in the context menus and in the property
views.
* #426687: Optimized session modification tracking, part of an ongoing
effort to improve session opening time.
* #430724: A new experimental Session saving policy is available
(org.eclipse.sirius.business.internal.session.IsModifiedSavingPolicy).
It has the potential to greatly improve the saving time of sessions with
large resources, but is not considered well-tested enough yet to be the
default. It can however be enabled explictly using
session.setSavingPolicy(new
IsModifiedSavingPolicy(session.getTansactionalEditingDomain())). If you
try it, please report any bug or behavior change.

[1] and the N&N sections of the intermediate milestones between Sirius
0.9.0 and 1.0.0:

* https://wiki.eclipse.org/Sirius/1.0.0M6
* https://wiki.eclipse.org/Sirius/1.0.0M5
* https://wiki.eclipse.org/Sirius/1.0.0M4

== Known Issues ==

The following important issues are present in the 1.0.0 release. They
were identified after the code freeze and could not be fixed in time. If
possible (i.e. no API break needed), they will be fixed in 1.0.x
maintenance releases.
* A formatting issue prevents the "Release Notes" from opening from
"Help > Contents > Sirius > Release Notes". You can read them from
https://www.eclipse.org/sirius/doc/Release%20Notes.html instead.
* #436375: Semantic models not automatically detected when converting
into a Modeling Project. A workaround is to add them manually to the
session using the Project Dependencies of the modeling project (see [2]).
* #437251: Trying to create a representation while Sirius is not yet
initiliazed causes a NullPointerException. A simple (but not obvious)
workaround is to switch to the "Modeling" or "Sirius" perspective at
least once (which forces the initialization of the required parts of
Sirius) before trying to create a representation.

Best regards,
Pierre-Charles David (Sirius co-lead)
