No I think not. The compile part of the build did work, JUnit's have started. ICU is a singleton, so it won't run any better with the old one there, maybe worse (that is, only one singleton can "run", which ever is requested first, I guess, which I'm sure would always be "4.0". So, we can build, but not test, until we get the updated datatools build.

Reserve some time on Friday :)

...which means you all have time to fill it in on Thursday!  Right?

The templates for M5 have been added to the web site repository, and you can preview the results at . As usual, if a project doesn't have anything written up on the morning of the milestone's availability, I'll just comment out the link to it from the overview page, no fuss, no muss.

As I asked in earlier milestones of this release, let's take our screenshots on Microsoft Windows XP using the default blue theme when possible, saving them as properly cropped .png files so as not to detract from our usual page layout. The improved consistency in their appearance gives the results that little extra polish, and for components who may not have access to an XP installation, just let me know what's needed to produce the right screens and I'll lend a hand in producing them.

The attached team project set contains just the 3.1M5 folder if you want to quickly get started from within Eclipse. To set yourself up to edit your subproject's contents manually, connect to the web site repository at and either check out the entire contents of the /www/webtools folder, or just /www/webtools/development/news/3.1M5 if you only want to work on this milestone's files.

And don't forget that API additions or changes, significant version number updates, and especially migration information should be recorded in "New Help for Old Friends IV" ( ). WTP is large enough that adopters might otherwise have a hard time finding what they need to do to have a clean and properly functioning build when picking up our milestones. As always, if there are any questions or concerns, feel free to raise them.
