Unofficial Planning Document
This is an unofficial document used by the PDE team to help with the planning process. Items on this list are not guaranteed to be found in a release.


Dates are listed in the Eclipse Platform Releng Calendar (view as iCal). Note that some work items will take longer than one milestone to complete. Plan items are listed in the milestone when work is intended to start on the item. The plan is intentionally heavy on milestones two through five to allow for bug fixing, iterative development, performance and polish work in later milestones.
