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.


This is the PDE project plan for the Eclipse Project Juno release.

PDE will focus on testing and releasing on the 4.2 platform. However, all PDE plug-ins will be compatible with both the 3.8 and 4.2 release.

Plan items are listed in the milestone when work is intended to start. Items that take longer than one milestone may be moved after completion. The plan is intentionally heavy on milestones two through five to allow for bug fixing, iterative development, performance and polish work in later milestones.
