Eclipse Layout Kernel 0.6.0

Release Date

The release consists of ELK features bundled in an update site (p2 repository and zip file for offline use), non-Eclipse components published at Maven Central, and a zipped version of the documentation website for reference.

The update site contains two sets of features:

  • Runtime library for end users.
  • SDK features for developers.

Clients of previous releases may not be compatible with the new release. This is due to changed layout options and changes in layout algorithm behaviour.


This release is not completely localizable. Many UI strings have been externalized, but not all. No other languages other than English are provided.

Target Environments

ELK works with Java versions starting at 1.8 and requires at least Eclipse Oxygen.
