The GEF 3.10.1 (Mars SR1) release provides service revisions of the production components Draw2d 3.x (3.10.1), GEF (MVC) 3.x (3.10.1), and Zest 1.x (1.6.1), as well as minor revisions of the new GEF4 components (0.2.0).
Please note that while GEF 3.10.1 (Mars SR1) is a bugfix release, some minor adjustments have been applied to the provisional API of GEF4. The list of added and removed classes can be found at . The most notable API changes are outlined below, marking incompatible ones with [INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE].
GEF4 Geometry 0.2.0
Aligned background color within the examples and added window titles where missing (M1)
GEF4 Layout 0.2.0
Fixed a bug where dynamic layout was not applied although it should (M1)
GEF4 FX 0.2.0
[INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE] FXMouseDragGesture, FXPinchSpreadGesture, and FXRotateGesture were renamed (M1)
FXRotateGesture abstract base implementations located in package
org.eclipse.gef4.fx.gestures were renamed to consistently use the 'Abstract' prefix:
org.eclipse.gef4.fx.gestures.FXMouseDragGesturewas renamed to
org.eclipse.gef4.fx.gestures.FXPinchSpreadGesturewas renamed to
org.eclipse.gef4.fx.gestures.FXRotateGesturewas renamed to
GEF4 MVC 0.2.0
[INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE] DefaultSelectionProvider was moved (M1)
org.eclipse.gef4.mvc.fx.ui.DefaultSelectionProvider was moved to
org.eclipse.gef4.mvc.ui.DefaultSelectionProvider because it is independent of JavaFX.
[INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE] Refactored FXView and FXEditor (M2)
getContents() callback from FXView and FXEditor, so that population of viewers is now completely left to subclasses. Modularized
dispose methods so clients can easily overwrite and adopt individual aspects. In detail, introduced
deactivate() hook methods.
FXViewer was responsible of creating a JavaFX scene and was provided with an ISceneContainer implementation, to hook the scene into a Stage (standalone) or FXCanvas (Eclipse UI integration) as follows:
The FXViewer had full control over the scene creation, so other root visuals than those provided by the viewer could not be set for the scene. This responsibility was moved out of FXViewer, so its visuals are now hooked into the scene as follows:
Thereby, several FXViewers can now share a single scene, which is e.g. necessary to create a palette viewer. By means of an JavaFX SplitPane, this could look like follows:
The now obsolete
org.eclipse.gef4.mvc.fx.viewer.ISceneContainer abstraction and the related
org.eclipse.gef4.mvc.fx.ui.FXCanvasSceneContainer implementations were removed.
Enabled that multiple viewers can easily be used with an FXView or FXEditor (M2)
populateViewers() hook methods from
createPartControl(), with a default implementation that is based on a single default viewer, which can easily be overwritten by subclasses to hook/populate multiple viewers.
Fixed a bug where the undo history was incorrectly cleared (M1)
Enhanced the default resize mechanism for better customizability (M1)
You can now define the visual that is resized (only the part's "main" visual was allowed before), and also define the initial size (the visual's layout-bounds were used before).
Fixed a bug where the way points of a connection were "jumping"/changing position (M1)
Added checks to determine the dirty state of an FXEditor based on the undo-history (M1)
Added a widget for creating/manipulating multi-stop linear gradients (M1)
GEF4 Zest 0.2.0
[INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE] Fixed problems with semantic zooming mechanism (RC1)
Renamed org.eclipse.gef4.zest.fx.models.ViewportStackModel to org.eclipse.gef4.zest.fx.models.NavigationModel and refactored it basically. Introduced org.eclipse.gef4.zest.fx.policies.NavigationPolicy, refactoring those parts of the semantic zooming that depended on the ViewportStackModel directly to use the new NavigationPolicy instead.
GEF4 Cloudio 0.2.0
[INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE] Renamed Activator to CloudioUiBundle (M2)
Renamed org.eclipse.gef4.cloudio.ui.Activator to org.eclipse.gef4.cloudio.ui.CloudioUiBundle, so bundle activator naming is more consistent with other GEF4 bundles.
[INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE] Made IEditableCloudLabelProvider and CloudOptionsComposite internal (RC1)
As announced in the documentation for the 3.10.0 (Mars) release, moved org.eclipse.gef4.cloudio.ui.IEditableCloudLabelProvider and org.eclipse.gef4.cloudio.ui.CloudOptionsComposite to an internal package.
