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 :)
