Visual Editor Project 2007-2008 Roadmap
In general, the main theme is to get the project back on track and in good shape.
From a goals perspective, we have the following alternatives:
- focus exclusively on Swing, SWT and RCP and do it extremely well; deprecate everything else.
- continue to provide a more generic editing framework, and supporting visual editing of non-java target such as GWT, HTML, Groovy, XForms, Web pages, EXSWT, etc.
My head tells me to go with (1) and my heart with (2).
