This page provides the required docuware for the GMF Tooling 2.4.0 Release Review.


The GMF Tooling project provides a model-driven approach to generating graphical editors in Eclipse. By defining a tooling, graphical and mapping model definition, one can generate a fully functional graphical editor based on the GMF Runtime.


New in this release

No significant events have occurred with the 2.4.0 release. This is the sixth yearly June release of GMF Tooling. This year, due to schedule and resourcing reasons, GMF Tooling has not been participating in the Eclipse Simultaneous release in June.
