e4 0.9 M2 Released!

e4 0.9 M2 Released!

It’s great to see a new milestone of e4 released (new and noteworthy)!

The major new and noteworthy item in my opinion is that XWT was included for the first time in e4:

e4xwt

What is XWT? XWT is a declarative widget framework that allows you to specify UI components in a declarative fashion. SWT code is generated automatically from an XML-based UI declaration. It’s kind of nice to switch between Design, Source and Java tabs!

In the end, it’s great to see progress.

    Everytime Netbeans guys come with something better, Eclipse always beats it down 😉

    Its really something to look forward too.
    But I haven’t seen any links on story of adoption/migration to E4
