Splitting The Platform Text component was previously part of the Platform UI component. Originally, Platform UI had only one plugin: org.eclips.ui. In order to achieve the separation of the components, org.eclipse.ui has been split into several plug-ins. Details can be found in the announcement and the release notes of the split.
