[1] Note that the Eclipse e4 UI work also requires the EMF runtime. This will be brought in automatically. However, if you wish to view or edit the UI model and you're not a fan of XML source editing, you will want to install the EMF SDK which provides the EMF .xmi editor. Follow "Help" -> "Install New Software..." -> "Models and Model Development" -> "EMF SDK - Eclipse Modeling Framework SDK 2.4.1 or 2.5.0", then restart Eclipse.
