		<h3 id="eef1.9.2">Changes in EEF 1.9.2</h3>
		<h4 id="UserVisibleChanges">User-Visible Changes</h4>
		<ul>
			<li><span class="label label-success">Added</span> A conflict resolution policy has been added to the Text widget. The implementation of the text widget now uses a new preference TEXT_CONFLICT_RESOLUTION_MODE, which is not exposed in the UI but can be configured programmatically using EEFPreferences.setTextConflictResolutionMode(). The default preference value can also be overridden by configuration, using the -pluginCustomization startup flag to point to a plugin_customization.ini file with, for example: org.eclipse.eef.ide.ui/TEXT_CONFLICT_RESOLUTION_MODE=USE_LOCAL_VERSION. EEFTextLifecycleManager supports three modes. First, USE_MODEL_VERSION which will overwrite the widget&#8217;s content with the value computed from the new version of the model (no user feedback). This is the default behavior. Second, USE_LOCAL_VERSION which will keep the current value begin edited by the end-user in the widget (no user feedback). Third, ASK_USER which will open a simple dialog box to ask the user which version to keep. Note that the simple dialog provided is only suitable for short (single-line) text fields.</li>
		</ul>
		<h4 id="DeveloperVisibleChanges">Developer-Visible Changes</h4>
		<ul>
			<li><span class="label label-success">Added</span> The text widget has been modified to add support for the customization of the conflict resolution policy. Conflict resolution can be customized by providing a custom LifecycleManager which extends the default EEFTextLifecycleManager and overrides either askUserToResolveConflict() to take the preference in consideration, but implement ASK_USER differently, for example with a more sophisticated dialog or resolveEditionConflict() to provide a completely different strategy (possibly ignoring the preference).</li>
		</ul>
		<h3 id="eef1.9.1">Changes in EEF 1.9.1</h3>
		<h4 id="UserVisibleChanges2">User-Visible Changes</h4>
		<ul>
			<li><span class="label label-info">Modified</span> Improved support for permissions.</li>
			<li><span class="label label-info">Modified</span> Fixed an issue with the label used by the dialogs of the reference widget to improve the support of meta-models with column label providers.</li>
			<li><span class="label label-info">Modified</span> Fixed an issue where the quick fixes did not trigger a refresh of the whole page.</li>
		</ul>
		<h4 id="DeveloperVisibleChanges2">Developer-Visible Changes</h4>
		<ul>
			<li><span class="label label-info">Modified</span> The constructor 
				<code>org.eclipse.eef.core.api.controllers.AbstractEEFController.AbstractEEFController(IVariableManager, IInterpreter)</code> has been deprecated in favor of another constructor with the 
				<code>EditingContextAdapter</code> as an additional parameter. Multiple constructors in various classes which ended up calling this constructor without this new parameter have also been deprecated. They will be removed in EEF 2.0.0. See 
				<a href="https://git.eclipse.org/r/#/c/94543">this review</a> for the detailled list of the impacted classes.
			</li>

		<h4 id="SpecifierVisibleChanges3">Specifier-Visible Changes </h4>
		<ul>
			<li><span class="label label-info">Modified</span> Fixed an issue where the variable 
				<code>input</code> was not available for some expressions in the select and radio widget.
			</li>
			<li><span class="label label-info">Modified</span> Improve the documentation of the available extension points</li>

		<ul>
			<li><span class="label label-success">Added</span> Labels and hyperlinks can now have buttons on their right side.</li>
			<li><span class="label label-info">Modified</span> Trigger the 
				<code>editExpression</code> of a single line text widget on 
				<code>enter</code>.
			</li>
		</ul>
		<h4 id="SpecifierVisibleChanges4">Specifier-Visible Changes</h4>
		<ul>
			<li><span class="label label-success">Added</span> A brand new widget outside of the default library is now available to edit references using an easier approach. Only the name of the reference to edit is necessary and the rest will be computed by the EEF runtime.</li>
			<li><span class="label label-success">Added</span> Widget actions are now available on labels and hyperlinks.</li>
			<li><span class="label label-success">Added</span> Labels and hyperlinks now have a displayExpression. If unused, the result of the valueExpression will be converted to a string using the 
				<code>java.lang.Object#toString()</code> operation.
			</li>
			<li><span class="label label-success">Added</span> A new widget named List has been added, it has the same behavior as the multiple reference widget of the previous release.</li>
			<li><span class="label label-info">Modified</span> The edit operation of a text field can now be triggered by the loss of focus on the text field.</li>

				<code>getEditingDomain()</code> which is used to return an EditingDomain for the EEF runtime.
			</li>
			<li><span class="label label-info">Modified</span> The constructor of the EEFLabelController now requires an EditingContextAdapter to run the expression of the widget actions.</li>
			<li><span class="label label-success">Added</span> The class EEFStyleHelper is now API in order to help support style and conditional styles for custom widgets. Developers will need to override org.eclipse.eef.ide.ui.api.widgets.AbstractEEFWidgetLifecycleManager.getEEFStyleHelper() to provide their own implementation. The easiest way will need to extend the regular implementation and modify the three switchs to provide using the dedicated getters.</li>
