Nowadays, the commercial success of an electronic device significantly depends on its usability. The demand for devices with intuitively usable interfaces is growing. This enforces developers to use user-centered development processes to guarantee a high usability for their product. The Useware Markup Language (useML) 2.0 is a user-centered task-oriented modeling language, which is used in the Useware-Engineering process for developing intelligent user interfaces. With version 2.0 some major changes have been made to increase the expressiveness of useML, i.e. with adding temporal operators the language has been equipped for semi-automatic dialog model generation. To support developers, an intuitively, graphical useML-Editor has been developed. This paper introduces the changes in useML 2.0, the useML-Editor and in part the transformation processes for deriving the dialog model from the use model.
