Here some current working areas
started to integrate a local CDO repository several cleanup and re-factoring of the generated EMF code added (simple) view of the package registry Ideas
CNF based Model View integration of EEF additional data editor based on GMF deeper integration with eclipse by a NO2 project (?) remote CDO server support additional editors (e.g. a model text editor) Further details will follow ...
