As you can see in the list of completed tickets, a lot of them are related to the new “segments”. As announced with the 1.19.0 release, we are introducing a new format to describe domain model references. In case you skipped the update to the 1.19.0 release, please have a look at this announcement. Please see details about the change and how to evaluate the new mode here.
