March 21, 2019 | 2 min Read

We are happy to announce that with the Eclipse Release 2018-03, we have also shipped EMF Forms and EMF Client Platform 1.20.0!

EMF Forms continues to be one of the most active projects at Eclipse with a very stable development activity. Again, we want to thank our continuously active team of 11 contributors (41 contributors overall) for completing 63 bug fixes and features!”

Starting with the 1.20.0 release, the development team tags Bug Reports, which are especially “noteworthy” for any adopters. Additionally, as started with 1.17.0, we continue to mark BRs which should be considered when testing after a version update. All relevant “noteworthy” tickets can be found on eclipse.org and all “test” bug reports in 1.20.0 can be found on eclipse.org. Please see the EMF Forms project page for a more detailed description of those tags.

As announced with he 1.19.0 release, we are introducing a new format to describe domain model references. In case you skipped the update to the 1.19.0 release, please have a look at this announcement. Please see details about the change and how to evaluate the new mode on eclipse.org.

Further, kindly continue to ask questions in the newsgroup and file Bug Reports.

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 an introduction.

Both of these frameworks are part of the Eclipse Modeling Tools Photon package, 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 1.20.0 release in the upcoming weeks! Please follow this blog or follow us on twitter for notifications about new posts.
