Hi all,

I'd like to bring your attention on this awesome addition to Eclipse Platform (upcoming 4.8.M4), provided by Andrey Loskutov:

The obvious benefit is that in your Eclipse product, where you can set some default preferences, you can now set the preference pointing to a folder, which contains default dialog settings for your product. The folder can be inside a bundle (more typically, it can be inside the bundle that defines the product and the default preferences), in which case the preference value would have an URL with platform:/plugin/... prefix.
The commit message and bugzilla discussion at tell it better than I do.

This opens a door to a lot of possible easier customization in the IDE. Default DialogSettings have never been configurable in a "declarative" way so far AFAIK, so this is really a new opportunity to allow you to even more customize your Eclipse products.

Cheers, and thanks Andrey for this valuable addition!
