			<p>
				This is the project plan for
				<a href="http://www.eclipse.org/tigerstripe">
					Tigerstripe
				</a>
				covering the development work during the lifespan of Eclipse Helios (v3.6).
			</p>
			<p>Tigerstripe is a Model Driven Engineering environment providing an integrated, extensible framework for the Telecommunication Industry. It provides
			a modeling and content (code) generation environment for the APIs between and information exchanged by <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operations_support_system">Operational and Business Support Systems</a>.</p>
			<p>
				The Tigerstripe project now has an established user community, principally through the <html:a href="http://www.tmforum.org">TeleManagement Forum</html:a>
				and their adoption of Tigerstripe as the environment of choice to create standard APIs for Operational and Business Support Systems integration.
				More information may be found at <a href="tigerstripe/community/index.php">Tigerstripe Community Highlight</a>. As a
				result, our focus is now on 3 key aspects until July 2011:
				<html:ul>
					<html:li><b>Scalability and Reliability</b>: making Tigerstripe a production grade environment that can be used in the context of 
					commercial applications.</html:li>
					<html:li><b>Extensibility and usability</b>: allowing for additional customization and specialization of the modeling and code generation framework, 
					thus guiding users carefully through the modeling process to avoid the risk of incoherencies. Also, we will strive to 
					increase the usability of the Tigerstripe workbench for increased productivity.</html:li>
					<html:li><b>Responsive Support</b>: adopting an agile development method for the project, providing tested updates every 3 weeks, leveraging 
					a newly redesigned continuous build environments build on <html:a ref="http://www.eclipse.org/tycho/">Tycho</html:a>.
					</html:li>
				</html:ul>
			</p>
			<p>
				We anticipated 2 releases of Tigerstripe in this period:
				<html:ul>
					<html:li><b>Tigerstripe Incubation 0.6</b>: in November 2010.</html:li>
					<html:li><b>Tigerstripe Incubation 0.7</b>: in March 2011.</html:li>
					<html:li><b>Tigerstripe Incubation 0.8</b>: in July 2011</html:li>
				</html:ul>
				<strong>Note:</strong> Tigerstripe Incubation 0.5 is available in its final release candidate version and targets Galileo. It is 
				made available for users on Galileo (Eclipse 3.5)
			</p>
			<p>
				In parallel with the development work, we will continue our collaboration with the Telecommunication Industry to foster a strong
				user community striving to drive incoming contributions to the project.

				The Tigerstripe Workbench 
			</p>
			<p>
				We have adopted an Agile methodology, combined with a complete continuous build environment, which will lead to more frequent updates and more responsiveness on bugzillas, 
				whether bug fixes or enhancement requests. About 200 tests are currently run on every build, as a mixture of headless tests and
				UI driven flows.
			</p>
			<p>Every 3 weeks, we will upload an updated version of Tigerstripe at <html:a href="http://download.eclipse.org/tigerstripe/updates/3.6/latest">http://download.eclipse.org/tigerstripe/updates/3.6/latest</html:a>.
			Upon each release, we will upload the released version to <html:a href="http://download.eclipse.org/tigerstripe/updates/3.6">http://download.eclipse.org/tigerstripe/updates/3.6</html:a>.
