Name        : python-envisage
Product     : Fedora 21
Version     : 4.4.0
Release     : 1.fc21
URL         : http://code.enthought.com/projects/envisage/
Summary     : Extensible application framework
Description :
Envisage is a Python-based framework for building extensible applications,
that is, applications whose functionality can be extended by adding
"plug-ins".  Envisage provides a standard mechanism for features to be added
to an application, whether by the original developer or by someone else.  In
fact, when you build an application using Envisage, the entire application
consists primarily of plug-ins.  In this respect, it is similar to the Eclipse
and Netbeans frameworks for Java applications.

Each plug-in is able to:

* Advertise where and how it can be extended (its "extension points").
* Contribute extensions to the extension points offered by other plug-ins.
* Create and share the objects that perform the real work of the application
  ("services").

The Envisage project provides the basic machinery of the plug-in framework as
well as GUI building tools (envisage.ui).  The workbench is the older way to
build GUIs from Envisage.  It is now recommended to use the Task framework.

Update Information:

Update to 4.4.0:

The major component of this feature is to work with the new
``traits.adaptation`` mechanism in place of the deprecated
``traits.protocols``, maintaining compatibility with ``traits`` version 4.4.0.

This release also adds a new method to retrieve a service that is
required by the application and provides documentation and test updates.
