Final release of the 1.x architecture of NatTable.

API Certification: 

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

Architectural Issues: 

The core NatTable layer architecture has been stable for several years.

Nevertheless the following aspects prevent further enhancements or cause issues that are hard or not to solve:

  • NatTable event handling is operating with mutable events
  • Offset calculation in painters
  • Hard dependency to SWT UI toolkit

These are the main reasons for freezing the 1.x architecture and focus on a new NatTable architecture that will deal with these facts.

End of Life: 

With NatTable 1.1 we will freeze the NatTable 1.x architecture. So 1.1 is feature complete and will not be further actively developed.

Still bugfixes, contributions and sponsored development is supported while focusing on the new architecture.
