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.
As in former releases the main focus was put on the runtime components. The main features have been
- accessibility improvements to make e4 on JavaFX eg in government environments
code editor framework
- code navigation improvements
- decoration system to eg show error markers in text sections which lead to a complete rewrite of the StyledTextArea internals
The project leadership certifies that the APIs in this release are "Eclipse Quality".
Most time was spend in improving the StyledTextArea-Control adding feature known from the SWT-Text-Framework like:
- Hover information
- Error decorations
- Improved code navigation
which lead to a complete rewrite of the internals (implementing a custom virtual flow, ...) to improve performance.
There's a steady flow of questions on our project forum. Ranging from beginner questions to more in depth questions
We see a big uprise in commercial adoption - not visible in the public yet - people building large scale enterprise applications on top of e(fx)clipse. Companies started sponsoring features (StyledTextArea improvements)
