The release engineering team would like to thank all the committers on Eclipse and Equinox for their timely responses to releng issues and processes. But, in addtion, thanks to those to those that have helped improve our build, either directly, or by improvements in infrastrucure or tools we use for our builds, such as Thanh Ha, Igor Fedorenko, and Jan Sievers invaluable advice. In addition, we'd like to thank those that provide our "pre-reqs", Scott Lewis and the ECF Team, and Ed Merks, Dennis Huebner, and the EMF team. Their willingness to provide stable builds "early" for what we pre-req, not only helps our project meet our deadlines, but also reduces our stress!

The Equinox team would like to thank the entire Eclipse team and community for supporting us while we did significant refactoring of the core Equinox OSGi framework implementation.

A special thanks to David Williams for his countless hours keeping the releng machine moving. This release also included an implementation of the new R6 OSGi Core Framework specification.
