Minutes

  • CDT 9.1 release
  • CDT Summit planning (Ottawa, September 20th, 2016)
  • CDT Summit planning (EclipseCon Europe, October 24th, 2016) https://wiki.eclipse.org/CDT/summitece2016
  • Full console update http://eclip.se/303808
    • Upcoming GDB 7.12 required. Should be available in September
    • Marc K finalizing patch to support full console in CDT https://git.eclipse.org/r/#/c/62920/
    • Marc D working on synchronizing the console and the UI thread/frame selection https://git.eclipse.org/r/#/c/77896
      • Mikhail has concerns because it proved very unstable when attempted in the past
      • With recent improvements to GDB, we hope it will be much easier to do
      • How do we handle multiple selections?
        • Jonah suggested (based on a customer solution) to bold the selection that matches the GDB one
        • This provides a solution if there is no selection in the DV or the selection is a different launch (but GDB still has one)
        • The bold highlights the whole hierarchy (process->thread->frame)
      • Jonah mentioned a customer he knows has this working properly. Ericsson has a similar experience
    • After repeated feedback that having the full GDB console as part of the console view provides a poor user experience, there is a patch to move it to its own "GDB console" view: https://git.eclipse.org/r/#/c/77986
  • Round table
    • Mikhail is concerned about activity on the debug platform that maybe noone is paying attention on CDT
      • When this happens, we should notify the cdt-dev and see if someone can investigate
