I've been looking at the Eclipse schedules
and have some recommendations for updating our roadmap .
We should update our WTP 1.0 plan to
factor in the Eclipse 3.1 maintenance stream.
1. Eclipse 3.1.1 is planned for September.
We should build WTP 1.0 on that.
2. Eclipse 3.1.2 is planned for January.
We should release a maintenance version WTP 1.0.1 in late January. Also
use that to rollu up critical bugs.
The Eclipse 3.2 plan to have a concurrent
GA of the platform and projects like WTP on June 30, 2006. We should pull
in our milestone dates by 2 weeks as follows:
1.5 M1: February 24, 2006 (recommend
moving to February 10)
1.5 M2: April 21, 2006 (recommend moving
to April 7)
1.5 M3: June 16, 2006 (recommend moving
to June 2)
1.5 M4 Final: July 14, 2006 (recommend
moving to June 30)
For projects that want to move to Eclipse
3.2, we should start building WTP 1.0 on both Eclipse 3.1 and 3.2. We can
call the WTP 1.0 builds early versions of WTP 1.5. We should start a WTP
1.5 branch to allow work on features that are not going into WTP 1.0.
