3.2 Polish Items

Last update: March 15, 2006 (Changes since March 13, 2006 in <font color="#33cc00 green</font>. New entries in Team and JDT UI)

<font color="#00FF00 New additions in green.</font>

<font color="#FF0000 Entries in RED have been fixed.</font>

<font color="#0000FF Entries in BLUE are not in the plan for 3.2</font>


So far, I have received input from the Search, Platform/JDT Text, JDT Core, JDT UI, and Debug teams. This document contains a summary of that feedback. The items are listed by component, but are otherwise in no particular order.

      <font color="#00FF00 MOVED FROM UI</font>

      There are sometimes <a name="too_may_password ]too many password dialogs:

      • If I'm trying to work off-line but have CVS projects in workspace, it can happen that you get lots of dialogs to ask for the password as the CVS decorators each need that password. Clicking cancel once should be enough to let them know that I'm not interested in entering the password now.
      • It would be nice to have a less intrusive way of asking for passwords. Idea is e.g. a status line icon similar to the progress view that blinks when a passwords are pending. Clicking on this icon brings a 'authentication view' that shows that status of all passwords: passed, failed, canceled, and lets me trying to connect again.

Maybe some extra adornment in the icon like an arrow that points in the direction they will open. The tooltip should also show the keyboard shortcut.
