Release: 

3.1.0

Description: 

This release will bring compatibility with Eclipse Neon, Sirius 4.0 and some improvements regarding the creation of diagrams from existing models:

  • the capability to display inherited references as nodes in an EClass
  • new filters in the entities diagram
  • a new view "Contextual Explorer" to easily browse the model.

Ecore contextual explorer

API Certification: 

The project leadership certifies that the APIs in this release are "Eclipse Quality".

Non-Code Aspects: 

EcoreTools is built using Tycho/CBI on the Sirius HIPP when the SCM polling sees a change from the last build. The results are automatically published in P2 repository available for consumption.

Gerrit is used for almost all contributions, with a corresponding validation job on the Sirius HIPP.

Tests have been added to check for the consistency of the diagram editor specification.

End of Life: 

Code in the org.eclipse.emf.ecoretools bundle and which depends directly or not on UI code will be moved during the 4.0 development stream, breaking the API compatibility.

This release is part of Neon.
