Re: [eclipse-dev] Status of M3 Candidate

PDE has updated the map file to reference new PDE Core and PDE UI versions.
These new versions contain fixes for:

1) Binary decorator issue (caused by Platform UI but PDE UI plugin.xml
needs to have 'lightwaight=true' in order to work for now
2) Critical problem with schema editor
3) Annoying PDE editor messages when switching pages

We did it before this note, so if you want, we can restore the project
references to the previous one (v20021112a).

Testing has turned up some significant problems with today's M3 candidate

JDT - Builder problem.  A patch for this has been mailed to this list.
SWT - Mac problems.  A patch for this will be mailed to this list shortly.

Two major problems are being investigated are:

SWT - GTK does not run.
ANT - "New" functionality proves unusable for SWT (and other) development.

As soon as fixes are found for these last two problems the patches should
be posted.  For testing you should apply the patches to today's build.

To make things a little easier there will be a rebuild tomorow at 8:00 am
EST that will incorporate the two patches that are already published *and*
possibly patches for the last two items, if patches become available

Please do not slip any other fixes into this build.  If the problem is not
bad enough to require a patch, it is not bad enough to go into the rebuild.

It is still intended that Thursday will involve further testing and fixing
and may result in a late Thursday build.
