Dead wood needs to be cut out. And GEF definitely has some: an organically evolved API, a no longer adequate modularization (partly because of e4), a tight corset of API compatibility restrictions. To modernize GEF, an initiative - GEF4 - has been brought into being about a year ago (see http://wiki.eclipse.org/GEF/GEF4). Plans were to develop a new geometry API as a nucleus in the Juno release timeframe, and to port the remaining parts of Draw2d and GEF 3.x as well as Zest 2.x to it afterwards.
