BIRT 2.0 Candidate Project Specification Review
To facilitate discussion and feedback on potential BIRT 2.0 features, the project team are going to use the BIRT Wiki that is currently part of the BIRT project pages.

BIRT 2.0 candidate projects can be found on the BIRT Wiki at:

This is proving to be challenging due to a change in the latest GEF that is not compatible with earlier GEF versions. We are investigating solutions.

[Aug, 8 - Update at time of distributing Minutes: The project team determined that we can support Eclipse 3.1 only with an older GEF release. We have reported this compatibility issue to the GEF team (see]
