the Welcome Screen redesign is on my
list for this week. And after that I'll promptly address the CQ.

Solstice Intro/Welcome theme Sent by:
I’m a committer on the Platform and was asked to work
on the reimagined Welcome/Intro described in bug
466370. The work is in two parts:
introduces a new Solstice-based theme for the Welcome/Intro pages, similar
to what’s used in the eclipse.orgpages. 2. It
also re-imagines the ‘home’ start page to provide a set of useful starting
actions for new (and possibly grizzled) developers; I’ve called these
I’ve included a small snapshot it below.
Three things to notice:
We’ve moved the page references (Overview, Tutorials,
Samples, What’s New) to the right side
We’ve added a set of ‘quicklinks’ for commonly-used
commands (left side)
We’ve brought in the always-show component (lower right),
which defaults to “always show on restart”
The work is currently pending on CQ
10824 against platform.ui (gerrit)
and we’ll need a similar CQ for use of the icons for EPP. This needs
PMC sign-off before it can proceed further.
This work is opt-in. The goal is for the EPP packages
to use it, once approved.
I’ve put up a changeset
on Gerrit to implement the change above for
the Java package as an example. What you need to do:
Include the org.eclipse.intro.theme.solstice feature:
it includes two bundles, org.eclipse.ui.intro.solstice and org.eclipse.ui.intro.quicklinks,
that implement the theme and the quicklinks component, respectively.
