The project leadership certifies that the APIs in this release are "Eclipse Quality".
Vex's DOM has undergone a full rework. Support for processing instructions, comments and XML inclusions was added. The DOM now supports nearly the full XML infoset (except CDATA sections and entities). The DOM API is still under development.
This release 1.1.0 will be the last release that supports the Eclipse 3.x platform. All following releases will work only on the Eclipse 4.x platform.
Vex does not handle any personal information and does not share any details about the contents edited by the user.
User Documentation: The Vex website has received a complete overhaul. It contains a short Getting Started video that shows basic steps on how to use Vex.
Localization: Vex is available in English. Localization using Eclipse Bable is planned for later releases.
Developer Documentation: A development environment for Vex can easily be setup using the Eclipse Oomph Installer. A contributor guide shows all necessary steps to get startet with development for Vex. An architecture guide shows the major concepts of Vex's DOM API, other parts are planned for coming releases.
Vex integrates well with the common concepts of the Eclipse IDE. It uses and provides the common mechanisms for contribution (e.g. wizards for document creation, commands and handlers for user interaction).
The improvement of the usability within Vex's editing area is continuously worked on.
Coming releases of Vex will not support the Eclipse 3.x platform anymore.
