GEF/New and Noteworthy/3.11


The GEF 3.11.0/4.0.0 (Neon) release provides minor revisions of the production components Draw2d 3.x (3.11.0), GEF (MVC) 3.x (3.11.0), and Zest 1.x (1.7.0), as well as minor or major revisions of the new GEF4 components (0.3.0/1.0.0). As declared in the project plan, the decision about whether GEF4 is provided in version 1.0.0 or 0.3.0 (and whether the overall release is a 4.0.0 or 3.11.0) will be made up to M5.

Please note that even if GEF 3.11.1/4.0.0 may be a minor release, incompatible changes to the provisional API of GEF4 will be made. These are highlighted below as [INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE].

GEF4 FX 0.3.0

[INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE] Split FX.UI module into FX.SWT and FX.JFace modules (M2)

Renamed FX.UI module into FX.SWT module and added FXColorPicker, FXSimpleLinearGradientPicker, and FXAdvancedLinearGradientPicker, which were provided by MVC.FX.UI module before (refactored from AbstractFXColorPicker, FXColorPicker, FXSimpleGradientPicker, and FXAdvancedGradientPicker). Introduced new FX.JFace module, which provides FXPaintCellEditor and FXPaintSelectionDialog, which were provided by MVC.FX.UI module before (refactored from FXFillCellEditor and FXFillSelectionDialog).

[INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE] Moved over (and refactored) IFXCanvasFactory from MVC.UI

Moved over IFXCanvasFactory and changed signature of the create method to take an additional SWT style.

GEF4 MVC 0.3.0

[INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE] Moved cell editor, dialogs, and pickers from MVC.FX.UI to FX.SWT and FX.JFace (M2)

Refactored AbstractFXColorPicker, FXColorPicker, FXSimpleGradientPicker, and FXAdvancedGradientPicker and moved them into FX.SWT (renamed from FX.UI). Refactored FXFillCellEditor and FXFillSelectionDialog and moved them into FX.JFace.

GEF4 Zest

==== [INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE] Factored out Zest.FX.JFace from Zest.FX.UI (M2)

Separeted out the Zest JFace-API into an own module, so it can be consumed without introducing dependencies on the Eclipse Workbench UI.
