'''NOTE:''' Mylyn 3.0 changes are currently in progress, and we recommend building against the [http://wiki.eclipse.org/index.php/Mylyn_Contributor_Reference#Checkout Mylyn 2.x stream].  See {{bug|227660}} for the plan and for details.  If interested in API progress, we recommend adding a watch for this page and a CC for that bug.

''This list is stale''.  Also see all source code tags titled "API-3.0"
+
* Refactor <code>TaskActivationHistory</code> into a <code>TaskActivityManager</code> that encapsulates both activity monitoring and activation history
+
* Merge ITaskActivityListener and ITaskActivityListner2
+
* Refactor ITaskActivityListener into ITaskActivationListener
+
* Move timing related methods to ITaskTimingListener
+
* <code>AbstractTaskListPresentation</code>: make API, remove coupling to <code>TaskListView</code>
+
* <code>TaskGroup</code> and <code>TaskCategory</code>: consider for API, refactor or combine
+
* consider merging <code>TaskList.removeFromCategory()</code> and <code>TaskList.removeFromQuery()</code>
+
* Move <code>TasksUiPlugin.getIncomingNotification(..)</code> and related private classes
+
* <s><code>AbstractTask.setCompleted()</code> needs changing, it has the problematic side effect of setting the completion date to the current time.  {{bug|203875}}</s>
+
* Remove <code>AbstractInterestManipulationAction.isRemove()</code>: deprecated
+
* Make <code>IMonitoredWindow</code> API and put alongside <code>IContextAwareEditor</code>
+
* Make API: <code>InteractionContextScaling</code>
+
* Rename <code>AbstractTask.RepositoryTaskSyncState</code> to <code>AbstractTask.SyncState</code> ("sync" is used commonly enough that we should be able to standardize on it in the API, replacing "synchronization/synchronize" where applicable).
+
* Add <code>InteractionContextScaling</code> parameter to <code>IInteractionContextReader.readContext(..)</code>
+
* Make a subset of <code>InteractionContextManager</code> API.
+
* Make <code>TaskRepository.getUserName()</code>, <code>getHttpUser</code> and <code>getProxyUsername</code> consistent
+
* Move highlighters stuff out of <code>ContextUiPlugin</code>
+
* Move to using the new public URLTransfer {{bug|100095}}
+
* Merge <code>IInteractionContextListener</code> and <code>IInteractionContextListener2</code>
+
* Move <code>NewTaskFromErrorAction</code> to be available to more EPP distros
+
* Delete <code>UiUtil</code>
+
* Move <code>JavaStackTraceHyperlinkDetector</code> out of java.ui See {{bug|217656}}
+
  
== Plug-in Refactorings ==
+
== Mylyn Commons ==
  
* <code>org.eclipse.mylyn.web.core</code> is now <code>org.eclipse.mylyn.commons.net</code>
+
* {{bug|305782}} Restructuring of Mylyn Commons features
* Core classes from <code>org.eclipse.mylyn.monitor.core</code> was split in order to make API not coupled to the Monitor component be reusable independently, now in the new <code>org.eclipse.mylyn.commons.core</code> plug-in.
+
* <code>org.eclipse.mylyn.commons.ui</code> is a new API for common UI components that are not coupled to the rest of Mylyn.
+
  
== Changed Team API ==
+
The Mylyn Commons components were restructured and provisional packages were promoted to API. Several bundle IDs, package names and extension IDs were changed in the process. Classes in provisional packages were kept but marked as deprecated and will be removed in a future release. None of the changes break API backwards compatibility but integrations that consumed internal packages or extensions points may need to be adapted.
  
* <code>org.eclipse.mylyn.tasks.core.ILinkedTaskInfo</code> is now <code>org.eclipse.mylyn.team.ui.AbstractTaskReference</code>.  <code>getComment()</code> has been renamed to <code>getText()</code>
+
The following bundles were renamed:

General

Mylyn follows the Eclipse conventions for version numbering and guarantees binary backwards compatibility for minor releases. Internals are binary backwards compatible between service releases.

API enhancements can be tracked by searching the source code for the corresponding @since JavaDoc tags or by querying for bugs that have [api] in their summary.

Pending API changes in 3.9

Porting from 3.7 to 3.8

Porting from 3.6 to 3.7

Mylyn Commons

  • bug 305782 Restructuring of Mylyn Commons features

The Mylyn Commons components were restructured and provisional packages were promoted to API. Several bundle IDs, package names and extension IDs were changed in the process. Classes in provisional packages were kept but marked as deprecated and will be removed in a future release. None of the changes break API backwards compatibility but integrations that consumed internal packages or extensions points may need to be adapted.

The following bundles were renamed:

org.eclipse.mylyn.commons.identity      -> org.eclipse.mylyn.commons.identity.core
org.eclipse.mylyn.commons.notifications -> org.eclipse.mylyn.commons.notifications.ui
org.eclipse.mylyn.commons.repositories  -> org.eclipse.mylyn.commons.repositories.core
org.eclipse.mylyn.commons.team          -> org.eclipse.mylyn.commons.repositories.ui

A complete list of renamed and added bundles can be found on bug 305782 on comment 13.

The following packages were renamed:

org.eclipse.mylyn.commons.identity     -> org.eclipse.mylyn.commons.identity.core
org.eclipse.mylyn.commons.repositories -> org.eclipse.mylyn.commons.repositories.core
org.eclipse.mylyn.commons.ui.team      -> org.eclipse.mylyn.commons.repositories.ui

The following provisional packages were promoted to API (see bug 360301):

org.eclipse.mylyn.internal.provisional.commons.core        -> org.eclipse.mylyn.commons.core
org.eclipse.mylyn.internal.provisional.commons.ui          -> org.eclipse.mylyn.commons.ui
                                                           -> org.eclipse.mylyn.commons.workbench
                                                           -> org.eclipse.mylyn.commons.workbench.browser
                                                           -> org.eclipse.mylyn.commons.workbench.editors
                                                           -> org.eclipse.mylyn.commons.workbench.forms
                                                           -> org.eclipse.mylyn.commons.workbench.search
org.eclipse.mylyn.internal.provisional.commons.ui.actions  -> org.eclipse.mylyn.commons.ui
org.eclipse.mylyn.internal.provisional.commons.ui.commands -> org.eclipse.mylyn.commons.workbench.texteditor
org.eclipse.mylyn.internal.provisional.commons.ui.dialogs  -> org.eclipse.mylyn.commons.ui.dialogs
org.eclipse.mylyn.internal.provisional.commons.ui.editor   -> org.eclipse.mylyn.commons.workbench

In some cases provisional packages do not map directly to API packages but classes were distributed among several packages.

The following extension points have moved:

org.eclipse.mylyn.commons.team.newWizards -> org.eclipse.mylyn.commons.repositories.ui.newWizards

The following extension IDs have changed:

org.eclipse.mylyn.commons.team.navigator.Repositories -> org.eclipse.mylyn.commons.repositories.ui.navigator.Repositories
org.eclipse.mylyn.commons.team.category               -> org.eclipse.mylyn.commons.repositories.ui.category.Team
