   <introduction>
     <html:div>The goal of the GEF3D project is to provide an 3D extension of the Graphical Editing Framework (GEF), that is  to enable 3D editors based on the GEF API.  Existing GEF-based 2D editors can be embedded into 3D editors with minimal effort. This is achieved by projecting the output of the embedded editors onto 3D planes and bridging the gap between 2D and 3D content: 3D objects can transparently access 2D content and vice versa.</html:div>
   </introduction>
   <release_deliverables>
     <html:div>The GEF3D projects delivers the core 3D extension, with additional functionality for enabling multi-editors and other features required to embed 2D editors into 3D. Also, some example editors are provided. Everything is delivered as plug-ins and features, installable using an update site.</html:div>

			<description>
				<html:div>The GEF3D framework started as a research project in the context of model-driven development and software visualization. However, it is not restricted to these areas. With newer and faster 3D graphics hardware, using 3D may become more and more attractive to a lot of different domains. Adding new features to GEF3D will highly depend on the requirements requested by an active community.</html:div>
