Minutes

  • 4.2 primary build coming soon
    • Worked through compile errors, map reorganization, and other issues
  • Helping release train projects (Scout)
  • Oleg looking at simplification and API cleanup on core services
  • Some discussion on whether we should remove selection service and require parts to get and set parts directly against the context
    • Performance problems with the current implementation
    • This breaks container isolation and requires part to know about the context.
    • Also harder to mock the part interface because you need a mock context
  • Eric working on framing trim items to enable dragging trim items
  • Bogdan on bugs related to toolbar styling not taking effect
  • CTabFolder improvements - scrolling tab list when it grows too big
    • Proper handling of case where tab has scrolled off the screen and isn't visible
  • Reviewing list of bugs for Juno
  • Brian working on activity support for commands, perspectives and views - bug 359778
  • Our use of margins in styling is different from what it usually means in CSS (closer to padding)
    • Consider changing to use "padding" rather than "margin" in our CSS - bug 364070
  • Working on improving Eclipse 4 documentation for RCP developers
  • Fixing e4 RCP feature so it is self-sufficient
  • We need to identify and deprecate APIs that are no longer applicable in 4.x.
