Dawn GMF Editors Project Reaches 1.0

Dawn has reached version 1.0. Dawn is a project to create a collaborative network solution for GMF Editors, which provides conflict-detection, conflict-removal and some conflict-avoidance mechanisms.

Dawn 1.0 adds support for tree-based EMF editors, and a split up generator model. Previously, DawnGenmodel was one file that contained generator descriptions for the target extension. Now, this is separated into at least two files: the main DawnGenerator model and a target-specific one, which contains information about the target itself. Dawn also now recognises two different types of specific generator models: Dawn EMF GenModel and Dawn GMF GenModel. Dawn 1.0 includes an extension for the Ecore Model Editor, with support for Graphiti planned for future releases.
