That sounds like a good idea :-).

I added a feature list to the download page

http://wiki.eclipse.org/Albireo_Download

This information was in our EclipseCon slides, but unfortunately nowhere
else. I hope it helps give you an idea of what's there. We'd be happy to
provide details and clarifications. I'm copying this response to the
eclipse.technology.albireo newsgroup which would be the best place for
followups.

Bear with us as we get better release processes in place.

Very interesting this project.
Has anyone tried successfully integrate Swing and SWT in an RCP app?
I know it is possible as Albireo demostrates.

What I don't like is to have 2 event threads, with the consequent sync
problems.

It's definitely being done in shipping, production-quality RCP apps. I
can't really call the integration "seamless", but it's good enough.

This is indeed the main difficulty with integration as it exists today.
The extent of the difficulty depends on what you are trying to
integrate. When embedding Swing into SWT, certain types of Swing
components are just better suited to the task. In general, it's easier
to embed components that are relatively self-contained. Swing components
that require less interaction with the rest of the application result in
fewer problems with coordinating the two event threads.

That said, we have also been exploring ways to merge the two event
threads, so perhaps this will be less of an issue in the future.
