Re: [p2-dev] Localized changelog for an IU

Assuming that you are using the p2 publisher tasks to build your jars. 
You should be able to generate a p2.inf file (http://wiki.eclipse.org/Equinox/p2/Customizing_Metadata) causing the addition of properties in the IU.
Then your UI can get these properties and display them.

Ideally you would put this information into the description object of the update descriptor. Unfortunately the p2.inf support for adding description has been added to 3.6.

Btw, is this UI something that you would be able to share in the open source?
