Bringing Sexy Back

In an effort to help Justin Timberlake bring sexy back, we are planning to give Forms a facelift in the 3.3 cycle and showcase the new look in the PDE editors.

Personally, I love Forms more than life itself. If you love Forms as much as I do, cc yourself on bug 152912 as the new prototypes will be posted there in the next little while.

A question remains though: Have Forms ever loved me back?

Go ahead, be gone with it!

Breaking News/Gossip

Labour Day marks the unofficial start of the new blogging season. Not to be outdone by Katie Couric, I decided to have a new format for my blog, whereby I focus on revealing breaking news in Eclipse 3.3 development.

My definition of 'breaking news' is that of CNN, so you may want to lower your expectations a bit :). Here is the first installment:

Work is under way in the Toronto offices of the Eclipse team on a new killer feature. When completed, this "feature" will help slash the Eclipse SDK download size by at least 30 MB. I do not want to give any more details at this time, as I do not want to jinx it; but if someone guesses correctly on where the 30MB can be trimmed, I will confirm the guess.

Another cool feature that we are working on is codenamed 'Command Conqueror'. It combines two of our favourite things: cool UI and the org.eclipse.ui.commands extension point.

So the 3.3 cycle is shaping up to be a very exciting one. Make sure to come to this blog to get the latest developments as they happen :)
