Re: [eclipse-dev] Planning Meeting Notes - Apr 14, 2010

The answer to the discussion topic is that pseudo-translations of the Eclipse SDK are produced every night by the babel project builds. They are available from the babel project downloads page. Simply unzip the pseudo-translation pack into your dropins folder and startup as normal.

1) Go to
2) Select "Developer and Nightly Builds" at the bottom
3) Select "babel_language_packs"
4) Pick a recent nightly build
5) Pick "Helios", or if you don't see it pick "Galileo"  [See NOTE]
6) Scroll to the bottom to find the "Pseudo Translation" section
7) Select the BabelLanguagePack-eclipse-en_AA_*.zip file

NOTE: As of today (April 14, 2010), the Galileo stream of the babel build was referring to our map files in HEAD. I have fixed this, so hopefully in the next build you will see a "Helios" build show up. Until then, since the "Galileo" build is referring to our HEAD stream it should work for you.

- installed the latest Ubuntu 10.04 beta

  - initial testing indicates that swt/eclipse are working here similar to on Ubuntu 9.10

- WebKitGTK+ implementation of Browser is ready for use

  - as of the latest nightly build the minimum required WebKitGTK+ version is 1.1.90, which the Ubuntu 10.04 beta has

  - instructions to use it: (note: will make this info available in a more visible public place)

     - add "Device.DEBUG = true" before instantiating first Browser, so native browser version will be printed to stdout

     - set java property "org.eclipse.swt.browser.UseWebKitGTK" to "true"

     - create the Browser with style SWT.NONE

- accessibility work continues

  - have acquired new versions of WindowEyes, Supernova and NVDA to help with IA2 testing
