RAP 3.0 provides an API clean up, accomplishes the development by integrating new components from the incubator into the RAP core (e.g. File Upload support, Nebula Grid widget), and includes some important improvements and enhancements (e.g. extended E4 support with re-parenting).
The project leadership certifies that the APIs in this release are "Eclipse Quality".

API that was marked as deprecated in RAP 2.x has been removed. This includes API related to lifecycle phases and lifecycle adapters (LCAs), concepts which we consider internals of the framework. Custom widgets should use the new Remote API instead.
The RAP 3.0 Migration Guide contains a comprehensive description of the API changes, and describes ways to migrate applications based on RAP 2.x to RAP 3.0.
