  • Shared install
    • Working on the read-only shared install scenario similar in functionality to 3.3 release
    • Eclipse install directory is read-only
    • More advanced case: When user installs sofware it is stored in user-local bundle pool
    • Won't get to this for 3.4.0.
    • Won't recover well when the shared base has been modified
    • Need to investigate if there is a low risk way to detect modification of the base and give a path for the user to recover
  • How to package shared install support
  • Want to be able to turn it off easily
  • Want to allow distros to plug in different shared install mechanisms/policies
  • Released support for generating bundle info for product in PDE build
  • platform.xml synchronization
    • Main current limitation is not supporting uninstall from classic UM
