This page provides the required docuware for the GMF Notation 1.4.0 Release Review, as part of the upcoming Helios Simultaneous Release.
The GMF Notation Project provides a standard EMF notational meta model. The notational meta model is a standard means for persisting diagram information separately from the domain model. It can also be used as a basis for diagram interchange and was based on the principles in the OMG Diagram Interchange Specification
New in this release
The only significant event with the Helios release was that the GMF project was restructured under the new Graphical Modeling Project (GMP). GMP includes GMF Notation, as well as GMF Runtime, GMF Tooling and Graphiti.
Otherwise, GMF Notation is undergoing it's participation in the Eclipse Simultaneous release as it has for each and every release. This is the fifth yearly June release of GMF Notation.
Accordance with project plan themes and priorities
