Which is the preferred development environment for gef3d?

Can I checkout the gef3d source from galileo?

Regards,
Madhu

I have updated the installation note in the Wiki accordingly
(http://wiki.eclipse.org/GEF3D_Installation). GEF3D is not part of the
Galileo train, and there is no installable distribution available yet,
i.e. you will have to install GEF3D by importing the sources from the
SVN. The latest version (as of revision 168) requires GEF 3.5.

Cheers

Jens

It was quite surprising to see that gef3d installable distribution is not
included in the galileo release.

Is it because of lack of features in gef3d? Or is it because you are short
of committers to do the planned work?

Infact, the concept of a programmable 3-dimensional editor to solve the
business/technical problems is a great idea.

GEF 3D still needs to graduate and release a "1.0"

The project is still incubating.

Once it graduates, it can decide whether or not to be part of the
release train (which comes with some more requirements).

It's kind of explained in the long Eclipse development process:
http://www.eclipse.org/projects/dev_process/development_proc ess.php

I'm sure if Jens and other GEF 3D committers keep up the good work, they
can get it in the next release train. It's also useful to the GEF 3D
team to know who is actually adopting the technology ;)

As Chris explained, we are still in the Incubator and you are right, we
are short of committers. There are only two people actively developing
GEF3D, so progress is slow, but it is steady. There are a few key
features still missing from GEF3D, and as long as those are not
implemented we cannot push for an official release. Maybe next year
(thanks for the vote of confidence, Chris!).

If you need any more help with GEF3D or have any questions, please feel
free to ask anything here. We will try to help you out as quickly as
possible.

Regards
Kristian
