  • Releases
    • CDT 7 Helios M5. We're a day late, but then so was the Platform, but it's up on the site now. Please test the C/C++ IDE EPP package when it's available. Doug will post on the ML as soon as it is.
    • CDT 6.0.2 for Galileo SR 2 RC2 is today. We have two more weeks until the final build of 6.0.2. Commit with caution.
  • Mac Debug Patches
    • DSF ones getting applied but still some big issues. CDI seems more stable put patches aren't getting applied.
    • Ken Ryall will spend some cycles and get the CDI patches applied.
    • Few committers have Macs which is our biggest problem getting support for them. Not sure the solution.
  • Debug Launch
    • We now have three launch frameworks - CDI, DSF/GDB, EDC
    • Which one should be the default? EDC is good for Windows, CDI is what people are used to, DSF/GDB is the future for GDB.
    • We will need to evaluate near the end of the release.
    • Good news is that the link to change the default is working well.
  • Build
    • Andrew G working hard on patches
    • Doug is prototyping his dream build system
    • For CDT 8 we will focus on build and decide whether to switch to Doug's or migrate functionality from it to the existing system
    • In the meantime, need to keep working on CDT 7
    • Question on big patch to support hyperlinking in build console and how it relates to Doug's work with MessageConsole
      • Need everyone interested to evaluate the patch
      • Doug concerned about build performance, especially with the MessageConsole, but the new patch needs to be checked as well.
  • EclipseCon
    • Not many of us will be there, but we will document what we do discuss for everyone to see.
  • Doug is in a new role at Wind and has more time to spend on CDT and other Eclipse projects. Hope it helps.
  • Doug is also running for the Eclipse Board again, and hopes he can count on your vote :).
