|Re: [gef-dev] org.eclipse.gef4.mvc.fx.ui.parts.AbstractFXEditor|
this mailing list is intended for technical discussions and announcements of the development team. I have inlined my answers to your questions. Please continue this thread in the GEF forum (http://www.eclipse.org/forums/eclipse.tools.gef), which is the ideal place for such kind of questions.
Yes, according to the release plan at https://projects.eclipse.org/projects/tools.gef/releases/5.0.0-oxygen/plan, GEF 5.0.0 will be compatible to Mars.
GEF 5.0.0 and GEF-Legacy 3.x bundles do not conflict either, they can be integrated into a single Eclipse distribution. You could also mix them within a single project, as package names differ as well (GEF 5.0.0 uses ‚org.eclipse.gef‘ as a prefix only, there are no classes directly contained in the root package).
We do not think that the ‚classical‘ palette as offered by GEF 3.x is the best option, and we have thus incorporated our vision of a ‚state-of-the-art’ palette into the GEF 5.0.0 MVC Logo example. Technically, we use the same parts for rendering the palette contents (to be created elements), and we can also use the same viewer. There is thus no additional code required to render the palette contents, which was a big issue in GEF 3.x.
