Hey Planning Council.

I'm engaged with my usual annual fun with the marketing team at the Eclipse Foundation, trying to sort out our messaging for Photon.

I have the New and Noteworthy's from the Eclipse Project and am doing my usual annual parse through them. I haven't located the New and Noteworthy's from any other project's yet, but will sort out a plan to sort that out in the next day or so.

There's all sorts of good stuff in there. Java 10 support is, in particular I think, a big part of our message.

But the good stuff coming out of the Eclipse Project only provides part of the picture. 

My sense is that Rust support (and LSP/TextMate support in general) is important, and that the change in how we're doing releases is significant. 

We need to boil it down to marketing-speak, which means 5(ish) bullets with some supporting materials. The target audience is the user community.

I need some help.

In your opinion (at a high level) what are the compelling 5(ish) things that we need the user community to know about this release?
