[[GEF/GEF4 | GEF4]] is the
unified effort to develop a new GEF 4.0 code base as a modernization of the current one (Draw2d and GEF (MVC) 3. x and Zest 1. x, in the following referred to as ''GEF proper''). Being developed in parallel to maintaining the GEF proper code base, [ [GEF/ GEF4 | GEF4] ] is set up as a provisional component in order to not being bound to the same API compatibility constraints. Up to now development has been started by creating a new double-precsision Geometry API (see Bugzilla [https:// bugs.eclipse.org/ bugs/ show_bug. cgi?id=355997 355997] for details) based on the Draw2d Geometry classes as a nucleus. Plans are to port the remaining parts of the Draw2d and GEF (MVC) 3. 8 code base to it after the Juno release, as well as the up to now independently developed Zest2 code base (see [https:// bugs.eclipse.org/ bugs/ show_bug. cgi?id=372365 bug #372365] for details). |+|

GEF4 is the initial name for the the fourth generation API of the Graphical Editing Framework (GEF). It superseded the Draw2d 3.x, GEF (MVC) 3.x, and Zest 1.x legacy components, which are not developed further but only maintained.
With the Oxygen release GEF4 was evolved into GEF 5.0.0, as outlined in 'GEF4 + 1 = GEF 5', while the term 'GEF-Legacy' was established to refer to the legacy production components.
