I'm the project lead for the Eclipse e4 Project, which is the incubator
for the next major version of the Eclipse platform. If you just
happened across this new(s) group, and haven't heard of e4 before, I
should tell you that the best place to learn about it is on the Eclipse
wiki at "http://wiki.eclipse.org/E4". There you will find
- background on e4;
- current work areas;
- pointers to demos;
- names of people who are already involved;
- and several communication channels, including a mailing list, an IRC
channel, a recurring phone meeting, and now this newsgroup.
The e4 project proposal says:
"The mission of the e4 project is to build a next generation platform
for pervasive, component-based applications and tools."
Now, while that is completely true, I believe e4 is first and foremost
an opportunity for this truly awesome, capable, and downright smart
community that lives at Eclipse.org to work together to make sure that
Eclipse has a platform that we *all* believe will be the best basis for
development for the foreseeable future. Part of that is a fundamental
shift from "getting the message out" to "creating the message
together". This is going to require as much friendly, open, thoughtful
communication, as we all can manage, and this newsgroup is another
important opportunity for that.
So if you're interested in getting involved, welcome. Let's talk.
