The Graphical Editing Framework (GEF) provides Eclipse-integrated end-user tools in terms of a Graphiz authoring (DOT editor, DOT Graph view) and a word cloud rendering environment (Tag Cloud view), as well as framework components (Common, Geometry, FX, MVC, Graph, Layout, Zest, DOT, and Cloudio) to create rich graphical Java client applications, Eclipse-integrated or standalone.

The GEF-Legacy components Draw2d 3.x, GEF (MVC) 3.x, and Zest 1.x are still maintained but will not be developed further. As they are still an integral part of the Eclipse ecosystem we continue to provide service or minor releases if contributions are provided by the community but will not fix any issues that require to break its API.
