I have a client that relies heavily on NatTable, and we're interested to know if there are any specific plans available for 2.0 (features, dates, etc.)

Thanks in advance for any information you can provide :-)

There are no specific plans available. For me 2.0 is a cleanup release. For years I tried to introduce no API breakage, which lead to several bad workarounds like instanceof checks that should not be necessary, or keeping deprecated classes and methods. So what I have in mind is:


  • Update to Java 8
  • Update to EPL 2.0
  • Remove deprecated classes and methods
  • Update base interfaces like ILayer
  • Improve memory consumption and performance
  • Improve scaling and add zoom options
  • Update dependencies (Eclipse Platform, GlazedLists, Logging, Eclipse Collections)


Apart from that there might be some more API changes on the way. Mostly internal as I still want to keep the impact for users low. But as our API is quite open and people are using this for customization, it might hit them.

I have no concrete plans for a release date. But I thought of something this summer. Depends on how fast I am able to work on stuff that I postponed for the last years.
