Minutes

  • Current status
    • How close are we to being done?
    • Steadily improving but expectations also going up
    • Have hooked up a lot of the commands and actions
    • Not all keybindings work as expected (e.g., home/end in editors)
    • One final keybinding problem with dialogs, Ctrl+C goes to editor behind it.
    • Want to fix a minimal set of commands that still don't work (cut/copy/paste)
    • Need to add style sheet switching to e4 workbench
    • Need to create a simpler splash - current splash is cool but gives wrong impression of smashing Galileo
    • Working on getting open/close perspectives working properly
    • Can get into a state with cascading error dialogs (perhaps a listener gone haywire)
    • Would like to get restore perspective working but unlikely
    • Debug has many ways to open editors and not all of them work yet
  • Helping users get started
    • Give steps for how to create an instance of the e4 workbench model
    • How to load the photo/contacts demos
    • Provide a command in Help that will populate the workspace with e4 examples
    • Workspace with .psf files pointing to tagged versions of example projects
    • Make sure example information on the wiki is correct
  • Plan for next few days
    • Need to verify bugs as much as possible
    • Declare RC2 tomorrow, and do a half day test pass on Monday
    • Major problems that users will hit that we aren't fixing need to be in the readme. Ensure there is a bug report corresponding to it.
