We are happy to announce that together with Mars we have released EMF Forms and EMF Client Platform 1.6.0! We want to thank all committers and all contributors for their work as well as the active ecosystem of users and adopters for the feedback and support!
EMF Forms is a framework focused on the creation of form-based UIs. EMF Client Platform is designed to support the development of applications based on an EMF data model. If you are not yet familiar with EMF Forms, please refer to this tutorial for a introduction of EMF Forms.
Both frameworks are part of Eclipse Modeling Tools Mars (version 1.6.0), however, we have already released a service release (1.6.1) fixing a Bug with the double control, so if you use EMF Forms or want to get started, we recommend to update to 1.6.1, available from our download page.:
Please have a look at our migration guide, e.g. if you have used the service provider interface in a previous version.
Since February 2015 and with the 1.6.x release, we have closed 111 Feature Requests and Bug Reports.
It is amazing to see, that the number of active contributors is still growing and how much effort was spent so far. OpenHub shows some impressive numbers:
We will describe the most notable new features in a small blog post series starting next week. We hope you enjoy the new release and provide us with feedback!
