This page provides the required docuware for the GMF Runtime 1.6.0 Release Review, as part of the upcoming Juno Simultaneous Release.
The GMF Runtime is an industry proven application framework for creating graphical editors using EMF and GEF.
The GMF Runtime provides many features that one would have to code by hand if using EMF and GMF directly.
- A set of reusable components for graphical editors, such as printing, image export, actions and toolbars and much more.
- A standardized model to describe diagram elements, which separates between the semantic (domain) and notation (diagram) elements.
- A command infrastructure that bridges the different command frameworks used by EMF and GEF.
- An extensible framework that allows graphical editors to be open and extendible.
New in this release
No significant events have occurred with the Juno release. GMF Runtime is undergoing it's participation in the Eclipse Simultaneous release as it has for each and every release. This is the sixth yearly June release of GMF Runtime.
