All of the feature requests for Eclipse 3.6 can be found in Bugzilla. Below is a summary of the planned new features together with a link to the corresponding Bugzilla entry which contains more information.
[Webapp] Help system webapp: Provide footer area like banner area (persistent, across browser window, optional)
Allow a footer to be added to the help webapp by setting a customization property. This has been requested to allow copyright information to be displayed at the bottom of the help frames.
[Help] Add alphabetical ordering attribute to TOC DTD
This allows anchor nodes in the table of contents to have their children sorted alphabetically.
Add child links to topics with content at runtime.
Allows elements in the table of content which are anchors to contain hyperlinks to each of their children.
The next three enhancements will make it easier to create UA content.
[Intro] Make the RSS news reader reusable
Mechanism for publishing internal resources of cheatsheet plugin
Additional help / debugging for CSH issues
[Help][Index] See references added to the keyword index
The keyword index in Eclipse is missing a standard feature of an index, the ability to display synonyms as links to another keyword.
