New and noteworthy

Adding new widgets in EEF runtime

In order to improve EEF users experience for EMF models editing, new widgets have been added in the framework's runtime. These widgets are:

  • SingleCompositionEditor: This widget allows user to edit a 0-1 or 1-1 containment reference on an object.

  • EReferencesViewer: This widget bring a simplier interface to edit 0-n or 1-n references. The element selection dialog has a cleaner interface for choosing the referenced elements.
