Intent is a tool allowing developers to easily write a documentation up-to-date with any development artifact (models, code, environment...).
The documentation, integrated with other Eclipse tools, then becomes truly useful and is no longer a burden that developer have to carry to please their customers or their project manager.
Based on Donald Knuth's Literate Programming concepts and allowing collaborative work around design tasks, Intent will try to reconcile developers with Documentation.
Intent is currently in Incubation Phase under the
Mylyn Docs top-level project, and Intent 0.7 is part of Eclipse Juno Release Train.
