Re: [cdt-dev] What's the name of the project again?

Cool. The official name is C/C++ Development Tooling. But that sucks. Everyone just knows it as Eclipse CDT. C/C++ IDE is the name of the EPP package which includes the CDT and other things useful for C/C++ developers. Mind you what "the CDT" is is debatable since we have so many optional parts.

And, personally, I want to grow past C and C++. Objective-C is the next obvious one. Fortran should be closer. And I still dream of Ada. Essentially all languages supported by gcc (except gcj which should just go away). That would require changing the 'C' to mean something different like 'Native' with the 'C' being invisible.

I look forward to seeing the proposed logo.

Hi all,

I see many names for CDT across

C/C++ Development Toolkit
C/C++ Development Tooling
C/C++ Development Tools
Eclipse CDT Project

Shouldn't they be all the same? I'm asking because a friend of mine is working on a new CDT logo and would like to create a "big version" with the name of the project. We would like to propose a new CDT logo that is more representative of the project and it could be used in a more consistent way:
- The icon of the C/C++ EPP package on the downloads page
- The icon in Help->About
- The logo on the CDT page (which at the moment is too much like EMF)
