EMF Forms and EMF Client Platform 1.15.0 released!

December 20, 2017 | 2 min Read

We are happy to announce that together with Oxygen.2, we have released EMF Forms and EMF Client Platform 1.15.0!

We want to thank our continuously active team of 10 contributors (38 contributors over all) for completing on 20 bug reports and feature requests.

It is amazing to look at the on-going history of this successful project, since version 1.0.0, we have completed over 1.4k feature requests and bug reports, 38 contributors have submitted 10k commits and developed 666k lines of code. EMF Forms continues to be one of the most active projects at Eclipse.

Once i a while it is fun to look at the commit history of a project. A cool project to visualize this is Gource. It generates a nice graph-based view of your repository and shows modifications done by different contributors. The following video visualize 6 years in 3 minutes. This is of course very fast, but you can still observe the different phase of the project, for example the regular release (which result in changes in all MANIFEST files).

In case you don’t know EMF Forms: It 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.

Both of these frameworks are part of Eclipse Modeling Tools Oxygen.2, but you can also find the new release on our download pages:

As always, we will also blog about new features of the EMF Forms / ECP 1.15.0 release in the upcoming weeks! Please follow this blog or follow us on twitter to get notified about the new posts.
