This is just a heads up that the EMF/XSD Activities example has
undergone some modification so that it can also be used to meet the
Capabilities requirement for Galileo:
These modifications will first appear in today's I build.
The summary is that the categories, activity-category bindings, and
default enablement declarations have been removed from
org.eclipse.emf.activities (and the activity IDs have changed for good
measure, too). This is good for flexibility, since it makes the plug-in
useful in a product that wants to define these things itself (and
indeed, it is used directly in Galileo). But it also makes the plug-in
somewhat less useful on its own.
In particular, if used on its own, this plug-in *will* hide all of EMF's
UI, and no explicit means of enabling it will appear in the Eclipse
Capabilities preferences (though the Enable All button will do the trick).
Note that this example plug-in is not shipped as part of the EMF runtime
or SDK, and is not included in any EMF features in coordinated releases.
Galileo will include the plug-in, for the first time, as part of the
org.eclipse.galileo feature, which augments it with the categories and
enablement required to make it useful.
It has never been recommended to include any EMF example plug-ins
unchanged in products (except org.eclipse.emf.example.installer and
org.eclipse.xsd.example.installer, which provide workspace-installable
versions), so this change isn't expected to have much impact.
