Outreach: - Dirk gave a talk at IBM/Austria. - Title: "How to contribute to Eclipse"
---------------- Status ----------------
Core: - RCP - moved to resources and runtime 3.0 codebase - working with running ANT in new dynamic world
(and dealing with OSGi classloaders) - Concurrency: - new code released to HEAD (not integration
build yet) - view update problems reported last week are
also found when running without the patch so they weren't introduced
by the new concurrency code - User Experience: - received code from update for removing the
config from the workspace - need to code review it before release into
PlatformConfiguration and Main classes - looking at "default workspace location"
problem....similar issues - Misc: - still working on XMLPull approval for inclusion
in the SDK...almost there
Ant: - extension point for contributed Ant properties - work in progress for hyperlinks & console coloring
for running with external VM - bug fixing
Debug: - work in progress for external breakpoints and location
verification using JDOM - work in progress for generic (debug platform) watch
items, with contributed delegates for value computation (per debug
model) - requested new plug-in for generic console, such
that clients can use console without pre-req'ing debug plug-in - bug fixing
Platform/JDT Text: - bug fixing - context views: - contents of Declaration and Javadoc view
is computed in the background - added context menu showing Copy and F3 (where available) - retarget Select All action (default: Ctrl+A) - added preview functionality to Javadoc view - affordance -- opportunity to press F2 is shown
in Java editor hovers: - This is one of the first affordances shown
in the UI. With more to come, this raises need for a global preference
for enabling/disabling "learning" mode. - continued work on Javadoc formatting: - not yet released - continued work on share file buffers: - not yet released, implies the conceptual
shift of allowing multiple partitionings on a single document with
major ripple effects on viewer and editor setup.
Platform Search: - Thomas Maeder back in ZRH, designated to
assume ownership of the search component.
JDT UI: - bug fixing - worked on refactoring text edit infrastructure so
that it can be moved out of JDT/UI plug-in.
Help: - proposal for partitioning help for rich platform
discussed and approved
Update: - storing update state outside the workspace - patch submitted - working on site shadowing utility that will allow
administrators to point at the remote site and shadow select features
on the LAN for faster access (part of corporate control of updates item) - bug fixes
PDE: - JUnit integration into PDE is done and tested. - addressed several outstanding PDE JUnit defects/enhancements. - will be in next week's integration build.
