Is anyone using the Grid even though it's continually in an Alpha state?
We're moving away from KTable, and I was thinking about going the native
table route, but there are going to be some really important features that
we'll miss if we go that way. e.g. multi-group table headers, etc. I feel
like I don't have a choice using SWT because KTable is dead, Grid is Alpha
and SWT native is lacking features.

Hi Andy,

Though Grid is marked in Alpha State in reality it is very stable and I
know many companies who are using it in production.

It might happen that we are break some API because of e.g. typos in the
API or better alignment to the SWT-API but that all you could expect to
happen until we put out a 1.0 release (beside adding new features).

We are working towards releaseing a stable version hopefully sooner than
later but we need to fix some administrative stuff before we can do that.

Is the demo source somewhere where I can run examples to test out its features?

I found the code, but am wondering if the example feature shows all the
Grid features. It seems to be light. For example, there is no editor
support in the example - what does that look like?
