Eclipse Extended Editing Framework (EEF) 1.9.0

Release Date

Discover the new features of the Eclipse 1.9.0 release:

  • Stabilization of the runtime for readonly elements

This release will still contain all the plugins of the "old" Eclipse EEF runtime (1.5.x), as such it should not have any API breakage with the previous release. The new Eclipse EEF runtime (1.9.0), being contained in a brand new set of plugins, should not have any impact on existing users of the "old" runtime.

Sometime in the future, the "old" Eclipse EEF runtime will be marked as deprecated and it will not be maintained anymore so if you are using it, have a look at the new implementation to migrate to the new approach.


All pieces of text in the user interface will support internationalization.
