Sorry Daniel, I didn't intend to misquote you. Your use of "instead of" in the following is, for a native English speaker, equivalent to XOR:|
Even though I'm unhappy that Albireo is not developed further I'm still
convinced that it's much better to use it instead of the SWT_AWT bridge.
I'm personally amazed at how well SWT_AWT works. The only two issues we've encountered are:
- Strange table flicker when embedded within a CTabFolder (bug 378743)
- Occasional Linux crashes when resizing panels as happens when embedding Swing content in Eclipse view parts. It seems related to Java 2D, but I haven't been able to isolate this sufficiently to assign blame, nor to create a standalone demonstration.
Albireo can be resurrected, but there needs to be a firm commitment from several contributors to the project. I'd be interested in being part of such a group, but I can't (and won't) do it alone!
