Transitioning to Eclipse 4

Our Very First Eclipse Newsletter

Welcome to the very first issue of the Eclipse Newsletter. We have over 12,000 people signed up for the newsletter so we are very excited about the interest. We plan to publish a monthly newsletter that we hope will inform you about what is happening in the Eclipse community, and serve as a technical resource about Eclipse technology.

Each newsletter will have a theme that highlights a certain Eclipse technology. This month the theme is Transitioning to Eclipse 4. We want to make this a community newsletter, so we'd love to hear what you have to say. Please send me your feedback and suggestions.
