*At a glance*

COSMOS 1.1 provides the following new features and improvements:

* SDD support
Tools and runtimes that provide support for the Solution
Deployment Descriptor (SDD) standard on OASIS. SDD support was
previously in research status, but is now fully available in COSMOS 1.1.
Included are the following features:
o A build time generator (BTG) that generates SDDs from many
sources such as other SDDs, SDD fragments, or RPM packages. The BTG will
generate conformance level one SDDs.
o A runtime driver to deploy solutions described in SDD
documents. With this driver, one can run the example COSMOS SDD through
the runtime to install the COSMOS payload. One can also create
additional example SDDs either by hand or by using the Build Time
Generator and process those with the runtime driver. Adopters can extend
this runtime with custom resource handlers as well -- see the COSMOS
Developer Guide for details. In addition, a command line interface is
provided for gathering user parameters as part of the installation
interview process.
* SML support
o Tools that support systems management data conforming to
the Service Modeling Language (SML) and SML-Interchange Format (SML-IF)
standards, version 1.1, including SML and SML-IF document validation,
SML-IF editing, import of SML-IF documents and export to SML-IF
documents. SML support was previously in research status, but is now
fully available in COSMOS 1.1. This release includes numerous defect
fixes to bring the tools into compliance with the SML 1.1 specification.
* CMDBf 1.0 support and infrastructure
o Integrated contextual help with MDR toolkit
o Reconciliation taxonomy
