This FAQ describes what the new 4.x stream is about, what to expect from it, and who should be interested in it. For questions about development using the Eclipse 4 Application Platform, see the [[Eclipse4/RCP|E4AP RCP documentation]] and its [[Eclipse4/RCP/FAQ|FAQ]].

In 2007, the Eclipse Project leadership decided some major changes were needed in the Eclipse platform. See this [http://www.eclipse.org/resources/resource.php?id=502 EclipseCon 2008 talk] for more details on the motivation and thinking behind these changes. It would have been too disruptive to attempt these changes within a single annual release cycle, so a new incubator project was started to run in parallel to normal Eclipse project development. Several pieces of technology from this incubator have since matured and are ready for wider consumption. Some of these changes have already been integrated in the annual [[Galileo]] and [[Helios]] releases.

For the biggest changes, we want to provide the community all the time it needs to adopt this new technology, so the 4.x stream was created to allow for 3.x and 4.x releases to occur in parallel. For at least 2010 and 2011 there will be parallel 3.x and 4.x stream releases to allow clients to stage their adoption of the new platform technology at their own pace.

[[E4]] is a sub-project of the [[Eclipse]] top-level project. It is an incubator where we can play around with different ideas about the future direction of the platform. It is a place where we can quickly bring in new committers so they can try out their ideas. It is our playground. Some of these ideas will bear fruit and migrate into other mature projects, and others will remain in the incubator.
