The CIM is being developed in the METAFOR respository as follows:


trunk HEADsource:CIM/trunk-
1.3source:CIM/tags/version-1.3updated coupling & genealogy
1.2source:CIM/tags/version-1.2formal release for EU
1.1source:CIM/tags/version-1.1fixing a few last-minute wrinkles
1.0source:CIM/tags/version-1.0formal release for EU
0.2source:CIM/tags/version-0.2re-integrated packages
0.1source:CIM/tags/version-0.1just needed a baseline


timeline (as of v1.2)

v1.3 : 30 October 2009

  • revamp coupling to better handle 1) transformers, 2) the distinction between coupling from software versus coupling from activities
  • restructure genealogy classes

v1.4: 27 November 2009

  • rationalise the use of version & id w/in the CIM; need to handle the id/version of the CIM, the CV(s), and the instance
