Re: [cdt-dev] CDT for Windows, launching, and Wascana

Well, to be honest, I guess my question was mostly directed at Doug. I should have been clearer about that. He's expressed his strong dislike for the whole launch mechanism. It's just not clear to me what's so out of whack with it. For sure, the concept of launch configurations are hard to digest. But with the context sensitive support now being used in CDT, it seems to me the beginner or novice user doesn't have to deal with them much.

Anyway, a topic for next week. I'm just curious.

I'll be delighted if I find there isn't much to do and that Doug is already
off doing it. I just want to make sure we have this covered in 7.0.
