Re: [wtp-dev] Notice that preliminary support for HTML5 will be in WTP Service Release 3.2.2 (Helios SR1)

My bad. The IP Log review is *not* required.

Carry on.

If I'm reading the bug correctly, the HTML5 support comes from a
non-committer contribution. Even with a service release, you'll still
need to have your IP Log reviewed/updated.

Does this change come with any additions/changes in API?

We wanted to announce this on this mailing list since, to some, this
will appear to be a "new feature" in
a service release.  While it is admittedly a large addition, there
are no new bundles, no new Eclipse
Features, nor any new or changed APIs.  From an HTML point of view,
this is merely a new content model
(set of valid HTML elements and attributes) to code and validate
against. So, we concluded it fit within the
bounds of a "service release".
It's still a new feature.  As prior, only HTML 4.x was supported, now
HTML 5 is supported.   I think we could
argue semantics on this one if we wanted to.  Of course we could have
argued semantics on the PsychoPath Processor
service release support JDK 1.4 as well, I guess.

I think it is a good thing to include, but think we really blurred
what we call a feature in this case.
