[eclipse-dev] Planning Meeting Notes - June 6, 2003

- 2.1.1 status: Help test finished - no regressions found. One minor issue
  routed to SWT.
- dynamic loading of TOCs feature implemented and released ("Improve scalability
  for large help books" plan item)

  pages in archives" plan item)

- another 2.1.1 candidate fixed and released in time for the Wednesday build
  ( The fix verified with
  the product team that originated the defect.

  without simultaneous Releng changes and is too risky for 2.1.1.

- import wizard redesigned for M1 based on input from large products' teams.
- new PDE Build code not ready for M1 - several PDE issues found. Both PDE
  Build and PDE UI code related to these changes rolled back for M1 (will
