  • Working on fixing quick access defects
  • Working on tagging automation in Eclipse 4 and e4 build
  • Some discussion on whether we still need to freeze master during milestone week
    • There are a number of different approaches we can take here - special end-game branch, cherry-pick fixes into integration, etc. We can discuss this when the time comes.
  • Investigating performance of commands and handlers
    • Evaluation service uses active leaf, so all evaluations need recomputing when active leaf changes (change active part)
  • Looking at handling style sheet changes when someone edits the style of the running application
    • Need to store user modifications separately so they can be reverted
  • Seeing problems with breakpoints on GTK (might be bug 223315 returning)
  • Selection problem with git compare acting on old selection. We believe it is fixed but keep an eye out for it.
  • Also seeing problem with Paste acting on editor below a dialog.

  • Will soon begin on writing up detailed description of Eclipse 4 architecture
