Reviews run for a minimum of one week. The outcome of the review is decided on this date. This is the last day to make comments or ask questions about this review.
The project leadership certifies that the APIs in this release are "Eclipse Quality".
The main driver for the release is the runtime platform where we:
- Improved performance
- Added new APIs e.g. to show styled labels
- Improved the StyledText control closing gaps and problems
- Improved integration of DI and OSGi
Support for TestFX had to be withdrawn because the external dependency was not yet approved by the IP-Team.
A maybe interesting point is that e(fx)clipse required Java8 since 1.0 and so it is able to adopt new language features like "default"-methods to evolve interfaces in a backward compat way.
An example where we used this is GraphicsLoader who got a new method getGraphicsNode(AdornedImageDescriptor) which would have broken source compability.
There are no security issues known or discovered
User documentation on the wiki (https://wiki.eclipse.org/Efxclipse/Runtime/Recipes) has been improved to describe new API useage
No APIs have been discontinued but some APIs have been marked as deprecated and will get removed in future in 2.0.0 due as part of the Mars release train
There've been talks at EclipseCon Europe showing the use of e(fx)clipse presented by adopters of the project. We've continued providing support on our newsgroup/forum leaving NO question unanswered something we are very proud of.
