this single development will have a massive impact on how we work and collaborate with Archicad. Really great news for this community!

Does Speckle federate all these components from diverse platforms? The online descriptions are too brief to tell.

sorry, what do you mean by "all these components"? are you asking about that particular implementation (which I have no idea about details) or about speckle workflow in general?

 

if everyone has a connector for their platform of choice, then do all the pieces of everyone's models show up in a federated space?

Not necessarily. When a speckle data stream is uploaded it is stored in server, with an identifier and a meaningful comment.
The actual federation would happen when a user actively downloads data streams of his choice to a particular application.

note that a "federation" in that context could mean getting one data stream uploaded from Rhino representing geometry (speckle mesh), another data stream uploaded from excel with a bunch of data (speckle dictionary), and finally downloading them in a third application joining/federating everything together (supposing that the particular implementation of "speckle for Archicad" was designed to make sense of that particular combination of geometry+dictionary, lets say that in Archicad this is converted to a slab with properties.
Each connector implementation is capable of making sense of a particular set of data types. Speckle is mainly a development platform and its full potential flourish when one is capable of adapting the tool (writing code) to its needs.

Or it could be simply that I upload two data streams from rhino representing (two) meshes (wich are stored in the speckle server not repeating the data structure of a rhino mesh, but other one, for that particular case speckle already has its own data structure to represent a "mesh") and then each one these streams is downloaded from Archicad as a morph (supposing that the connector converts "speckle meshes" to morphs.

P.S: Still not published, seems that we need to wait for the upcoming update of Speckle Manager 2.5
