Discussion Topics



- Performance:
- Java breakpoint creation perfomed in background thread to avoid
blocking UI
- reduced garbage creation in console
- continue to investigate console failures: timings show new console
is faster than 3.0 when run outside performance test suite
- added maximum number of characters to display in variables details
area (user pref) to avoid out of memory exception when displaying
large arrays
- main method search improved on Java Application launch configuration
- API cleaning:
- ensure @since 3.1 tags are present, javadoc fomatting is reasonable,
- bug fixing

- move to Ant 1.6.3
- API cleaning
- ensure @since 3.1 tags are present
- bug fixing

Rel. Eng.:
- configured, tested new performance machines. Ran "test" 3.0 baseline
test run last Friday.
- updated performance test plan:
- investigating intermittent network connection failures to test machines
- review/revise process to support external contributions of eclipse
- posted build schedule that supports 3.1 endgame plan:
- released fixes for performance web presentation
- testing latest versions of PDE Build

JDT Core:
- bug fixing
- tuned CodeAssist option for filtering restricted
completions (based on classpath access rules).
- removed 3.1 APIs BindingKey#getDeclaringTypeSignature()
and BindingKey#toSignature() as they were found error
prone. See bug 93105 for details
- added support for 'capture' inside Code Assist. Declaring
type of a completion proposal is captured for qualified
- added APIs to replace a range of moved nodes (ListRewrite
#createMoveTarget(first, last, replacingNode, editGroup)).
See bug 91938 for details.
- work in progress for @SuppressWarning
- work in progress for enabling batch compiler use of access

Platform/JDT Text:
- performance:
- continued to investigate failing performance tests and missing
suites [in progress]
- for some reason the focus is not on the workbench/editor
- changed Platform/JDT Text code to use new
StyledText.getTextBounds(int,int) API
- quick diff: improved document copying for documents that implement
- J2SE 5.0:
- auto(un)boxing semantic coloring now uses AST information and is much
more complete
- context information for type parameters (only when inserting a
generic type proposal, not upon Ctrl+Shift+Space)
- MoveLines now indents the moved lines in the Java editor
- investigated work related to default line delimiter polish item
- preference pages now link to Colors and Fonts preference page
- reviewed and discussed patches from Platform UI (Susan) regarding the
unified undo story
- bug fixing
- bug inbox tracking

- bug fixing
- polishing:
- shortcuts for quick fixes
- new open type dialog
- prepared JDT code for new default line delimiter
preference. Inspected all code places that create
code to ensure that we will honor the new setting
- J2SE 5.0:
- rename refactoring now also renames annotation elements
- support for capture and wildcard types in Extract Local,
Extract Constant and other refactorings
- wrote tests for capture types
- adding a starimport removes unnecessary single imports
- Performance:
- optimized ripple method finder to use more restricted search
scope and fewer subtype hierarchies.
- examined code assist in monster workspace
- examined memory consumption for structural refactorings
- added "Slowdown explained" support to performance plug-in
(all branches)

Platform Core:
- project specific content type settings
- buddy classloading
- M7 endgame planning
- bug triage
- bug fixing

- plug-in import wizard reworked to restore the old binary import behavior
with plug-ins in JARs. Binary import with linking works again.
- caching of the workspace state added. With workspace caching,
initialization of 995 plug-ins dropped from 4-27sec to 1.2sec.
- PDE UI and PDE Build are now sharing state, which makes PDE export very
- bug fixes

- UA:
- Initial User Experience:
- working on embedding help documents inside Intro pages (with intro
- HTML-based intro on Linux mostly done
- HTML-based intro on Mac has problems with the embedded browser
- bug fixes
- Help:
- bug fixes, UI polish, Javadoc cleanup
- Eclipse Forms:
- improved accessibility support, bug fixes, Javadoc cleanup
- Cheat Sheets:
- new images, added categories for the dialog, reworking the cheat
sheet selection dialog to be more consistent with the rest of the
workbench UI

- added automatic selection of required features if available on the
update site (e.g. VE needs GEF)
- bug fixes

Platform UI:
- general:
- bug fixing
- NL + BIDI issues investigated/fixed
- content types + file associations preferences work
- undo/redo bugs and tweaking
- performance:
- (
- some regression fixing from work done for performance
- polish:
- put in new support to allow us to put back 68938 [Contributions] Allow
