[eclipse-dev] Planning Meeting Notes - May 21, 2003

- making good progress on new implementation for inferring syntax error
messages (based on JikesPG heuristic). Should be released into next
integration build.
- reaching consensus on API change for closing gap in between compilation
units and working copies. Basically, if you use working copies, you
should glance at the discussion on the jdt-core-dev mailing list. Also if
you expect units to always reflect filesystem contents (as opposed to
editor unsaved contents), then again you should consider reacting to the
proposal. PR ID is 36888.
- new optional classpath problem for detecting usage of incompatible
required binaries (which .class file version is higher than target JDK),
will be in next integration build.
