As outlined above one of the main targets was to get the runtime API in shape for the 1.0 release. This included adding JavaDoc to all public APIs. As an extra services we used JDT-Annotations to encode Null-Informations into the API.
The general documentation on e(fx)clipse is found on our wiki-page. One of the most important pages is our collection of recipes showing best practice useage of some of our APIs and similar page with information on e4 on JavaFX provides informations e.g. about available model tags, ... .
We host some tutorials on getting started with the runtime platform e.g. to develope e4 on JavaFX applications. For developers who want to work with our custom UI-DSL named fxgraph we have a step by step introducation available on our wiki as well.
We started to see code contributions from developers who started to adopt e(fx)clipse are part their work.
Collaboration in and outside Eclipse.org
We worked with upstream Eclipse projects like e.g. JDT to include JavaFX-API doc into the Eclipse-Java-Editor and e.g. the detection JavaFX sources who allow developers to debug into JavaFX source in case somethings going wrong. We are also working with the OpenJFX-Team to e.g. provide additional API on JavaFX controls. We've also been one of the heave JDT8 Beta-Testers and file various bug reports who helped the JDT-Team to get Java8 support in shape for Luna.
SWT on JavaFX
SWT on JavaFX started its life outside Eclipse.org but was contribute by BestSolution.at in the 1.0 timeframe. SWT on JavaFX is a experimental JavaFX who allows RCP developers take their existing SWT UIs and render them through JavaFX. This allows them to migrate their applications from SWT to JavaFX step by step. SWT on JavaFX is not part of this release but the sources are available in our git repo. There are no current plans to invest more time into this area unless we get funded to do so.
We explored writing a Code-Editor which is built on top of Eclipse-Text, while the code-editing framework is not part the release a control who allows people to show StyledText is available as part of the runtime API. We plan to further explore this are in the next releases because it is an excellent test for the runtime platform we are providing.
