Announcements And Special Reports

  • We (PMC) have decided to not to advocate a "3.0.6" maintenance release, though we are sure there will be some patches required post 3.0.5.
  • We (PMC) and the Eclipse Planning Council have decided to have a more uniform look to the Provider information in the about box. We do not have to do any mass changes to all the plugins and all features, but any "branding" features (those that show up in the about box) should use common branding; same icon and same Provider name: "Eclipse Web Tools Platform". See bug 273772 for new icons, etc.
This will likely be done by during RC2 and RC3 unless anyone objects.
One implications is that our current "branding" plugins of "o.e.wst" and "o.e.jst" will be going away.
Another is that our "assembly features" will be changing. These are the container features, o.e.wst and o.e.jst.
