This page lays out milestone plans for the development of Equinox p2 in the Eclipse Helios release (aka the Eclipse Platform version 3.6).

Current Plan: M6 - March 12th, 2010 - API Freeze =

  • API completion is the focus for this milestone.
  • License identification work (DJ)
    • License work
    • UI work to verify that everything is happening properly
    • Publisher / PDE
  • Discovery UI
    • Mylyn metadata work (Steffen / Pascal)
    • Mylyn UI work (Steffen)
  • Planner
    • Work on the encoding of conditional installation (Daniel)

- Remove references to the services - 299987

- Serialization

- Download


Future Plans

M7 - April 30, 2010 - Feature Freeze

  • Polish items
  • Performance work
  • UI Accessibility
  • Testing and test framework improvements
  • Release train build/repository assistance

Helios items left

  • Eclipse touchpoint
    • Improve detection for conflicting arguments
  • Native touchpoint
    • Improve detection for conflicting arguments
  • Engine
    • Reacting to change of property
    • Support for unicodes in actions
    • Consistent handling of @artifacts
    • Pluggable phases
  • Publisher / generator
    • Get rid of the generator bundle to the benefit of the publisher
  • Director application
    • Make it easier to do a set of operations (do we need a "response file"), see relationship with installer
    • Provide the ability to set properties at install time
  • UI
    • Ability to define/install/uninstall user-named groups of IU's
    • Fast-path install scenarios (gestures for auto-install)
    • Showing non-greedy optional dependencies for selection
  • Planner
    • Explore addition of negation and or
    • Explore a way to remove the need of optional installation for patches
    • Explore the addition of new types of requirements and capabilities
    • Explore a way to provide more stability when uninstalling or installing
    • Automatic discovery of best update
    • Improve speed of explanation
  • Repository
    • Make the query mechanism more lazy
    • Persistence scalability
    • Validation facility
    • Improve repository tools (Repo2Runnable, Mirroring, etc.)
  • General
    • Define API
    • Improve general flexibility of p2
      • Make the resolver standalone
      • Have several instances of p2 run at the same time in the same VM
    • Make p2 run on other frameworks
  • Improve the installer
  • Explore another to categorize content

Previous Plans

M5 - January 29th, 2010 - Major Feature Freeze

  • Define API (All)
  • Have several instances of p2 run at the same time in the same VM (John / Pascal / Henrik)

M4 - December 11, 2009

  • Define API (All)
  • Have several instances of p2 run at the same time in the same VM (John)
  • Planner improvements
