WikiText is a new component of Mylyn, supporting lightweight markup for its task editor. The goal of this project is to extend Mylyn’s task editor to provide rich text viewing and editing of lightweight markup such as Textile and MediaWiki. Detailed proposal is available here.

This project is part of Google Summer of Code 2008.


Here is a complete list of the milestones and release dates. Considering the status of Mylyn's ongoing refactoring, the date is subject to change.

A bug that summarizes all the tasks: bug 233819.
