== Ramp Down ==
* Mylyn 3.0.2 RC1: 2008-08-22
* Mylyn 3.0.2 RC2: 2008-09-09
= Scope =
The first goal of Mylyn is to make task and context management seamlessly integrated with the Eclipse Platform by providing rich and extensible frameworks for task repository connectors, structure bridges and team support.  The second goal is to provide a reference implementation of the Task-Focused UI for the Eclipse SDK.  This includes structure bridges for the artifacts supported by the SDK which include Java, PDE, Ant and generic files.  It also includes the Bugzilla Connector as the reference task repository implementation, and CVS integration as the reference team support.  Additional features can be considered based on the availability community contributions and resources.
== Priorities ==
In addition to using the planned themes listed below, we need to continue prioritizing the ongoing input of our growing user community.  Committers should prioritize bugs in the following order.  This order need not be used if a bug contains a community contribution of a patch, in which case the [ quality of the patch] determines the priority.
# Frameworks & APIs: Tasks, Context, Team, Monitor, headless use
# UI: Tasks List, Task Editor, Task-focused UI
# Connectors: Bugzilla (reference implementation), Trac (committer supported), JIRA (community supported)
== Out of Scope ==
== Platforms ==
* Eclipse: 3.4 and 3.5 Milestones (only latest milestone supported at time of release)
* Java: JRE 5.0 or later required
* Operating Systems: all supported by Eclipse
= API Themes =
Legend: planned for 3.1, <font color=green>completed for 3.1</font>, <font color=gray>optional, candidate for 3.2</font>
== Other ==
* Ensure passing test suite and setup continuous build
* Remove deprecated internal classes
* Cleanup Sandbox to make it installable
* Improvements to API documentation (likely 3.2)
== Commons API ==
* Expose save model to enable third parties to participate in safe saving and snapshots of <code>.mylyn</code> workspace data.  Make the save model safe to all failures (e.g. power off) and provide history snapshots.
== Context API ==
* Support asynchronous and periodic saving of contexts.
== Tasks API ==
* Improve performance.  E.g., query synchronization, Task List refresh.
* Encapsulation of guaranteed visibility rules (need to discuss)
* Provide utility API for commonly used Forms functionality
* Provide mapping from TaskData model to UI elements in task editor
* Integrated bug reporting
* Listener-based notifications for incoming changes and date changes (likley 3.2)
* Fine-grained notifications to avoid extraneous refreshes (likely 3.2)
* Import/export API improvements and conflict resolution (likely 3.2)
* <font color=gray>API for Task List</font> (likely 3.2)
== Team API ==
* Change set refresh problem fix or work-around.
= UI Themes =
== Context UI ==
* Remove the need to Alt+click by custom drawing an affordance for showing filtered children.  {{bug|175655}}
== Tasks UI ==
== Task Editor ==
* Support WikiText based rich editing for all task editors. 
* Merge the local and repository task editors.  {{bug|211096}}
* Add ''Find'' functionality for task editor.
* Improve information density of the repository task editor.  For example, by folding away comments and wrapping comment text, maximize new comment area, support text wrapping.
* Improve Outline and provide a quick outline (probably out of scope)
* Improve offline attachment support (most likely out of scope)
Other: Fix duplicate detection UI
== Task List ==
Also see [ current plan] and [[Mylyn/Plan/3.0]]
* Reduce clicks for task creation.
* Improve usability of unfocused mode and discoverability of focused mode
* Improve discoverability of activtion, e.g., button highlights on hover
* Improve subtask matching for queries
* Streamline popup menus in Task List, Search and Editors.
