Connectivity Usability Changes for the Ganymede (DTP 1.6) Release

Over the course of the last three months, we've asked for feedback from the community about some of the proposed changes for DTP Connectivity to address some of the usability issues that have come up. We've received quite a bit of good feedback via Bugzilla, the Newsgroups, and the Mailing Lists. So a big thank you to everyone who provided feedback!

As we approach the DTP 1.6M7 milestone and now that we've had time to consider some of the feedback we received at EclipseCon 2008, I wanted to document "the plan" for what is going to make it into the DTP 1.6 release.

Part 1 -- The Driver Combo Box

For the past few releases (0.9, 1.0, and 1.5), the Driver Combo box has looked like this:
