Eclipse Graphical Editing Framework (GEF) 5.0.0 (Oxygen)
This is a major release that contains 5.0.0 revisions of the GEF production components Common, Geometry, FX, MVC, Graph, Layout, Zest, DOT, and Cloudio. They originate from those GEF4 components that have initially been part of the 4.0.0 (Neon) and 4.1.0 (Neon.1) releases, being adopted to the original project namespace 'org.eclipse.gef.*'.
Unless no fixes/patches are provided by the community up to M7, the GEF-Legacy (Draw2d, GEF (MVC), and Zest) components will be released in their 4.0.0 (Neon) revisions.
The project leadership certifies that the APIs in this release are "Eclipse Quality".
There are no security issues for this project.
The GEF and GEF-Legacy code bases have been migrated to GEF@github.com and GEF-Legacy@github.com. All project documentation, including adopters guide and contributors guide, have been migrated to the respective GitHub wikis. The GEF web page has been revised to point to the project meta-data at projects.eclipse.org and the respective GitHub repositories (without duplicating any information).
By migrating the GEF4 components to the original project namespace, all previously published API is literally broken because of package renamings. In addition to this, the Layout and MVC API have been partly revised. Concerning MVC, the merger of MVC with MVC.FX and MVC.UI with MVC.FX.UI has significantly affected the API.
