Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Heads up of GEF classic (used to be GEF legacy) contribution to SIMREL


I think the approach of changing the feature IDs is not viable and that this should be avoided.  I've opened this issue to explain the problem and we can discuss the issue further there:

GEF legacy is currently resurrected and has been renamed to GEF
Classic. I'm currently helping with the release work.

For the 2022-09 Release we are planning to contribute a new version of
GEF classic to the simrel. It is basically the same version only the
Java version has been updated to require Java 11 and due to the
introduction of pomless builds some feature IDs were renamed.

There is real work planned for GEF classic but we wanted to start with
a release which has minimal changes to reduce possible breakages for

GMF has already been prepared to use the new version and has also a
pending contribution to the simrel. We wanted to wait for the 2022-06
release to finish to avoid late game changes.

I was told that during the contribution process I should disable all
contributions which fail due to this contribution. So far it looks
like GMF, DTP needs some update. The changes required should be small
as you only need to update your usage of the feature ID in case you
include or require GEF classic features into your own features /

The latest GEF version can be found here in case you what to test your
builds against it:
