Guess this one addresses project lead (Christian Campo?!) or the core team:

- does Riena 5.0.0 indeed support e3, e4 and RAP altogether?
- what are your plans for the future? [will there be a v.6? what features are planned?]
- will Riena be part of coming Eclipse Release Trains?

please let me (us all!) know Smile

Does Riena 5.0 support e3, e4, RAP ?

If you look at http://wiki.eclipse.org/index.php?title=Riena/GettingStarted you see a description how to set up the target platform for the 3 scenarios.

Technically the Kepler composite repo contains the Riena for e4 contribution. Due to a mistake from David Williams, the Riena on RAP feature is NOT in the Kepler composite repo but only in the p2 repo that contains Riena on e4 and Riena on RAP. This will be fixed in any future repo i.e. SR1 of Kepler and Luna,

Riena on e3 is a separete p2 repo. (all in the Getting Started page)

What are the plans ?

Yes we continue to develop Riena, since we successful run a number of customer projects based on Riena. We plan to call the next version Riena 6.0.

Do you have any wishes for a future version ? After all this is open source and supposed to be driven by the community. Smile Do you like to contribute something to Riena ?

Key topics for Riena is working on the support of e4. We are not quit happen how it is currently done. We had to copy some E4 classes and their code to make Riena run.
Another key topic for the future is support for JavaFX. Currently the support for JavaFX is developed in a separate branch (not part of Kepler) and it works only very limited. So there is still a lot of work.

Will Riena be part of future Eclipse Release Trains ?

Very often once you are in a release train, you stick with that. (unless you have a good reason to exit). We dont so we plan to be in the release trains for the foreseeable future.

Does that help ? Anything that interests you in particular ? More questions ? Do you like to contribute to Riena ?

regards
christian campo
