Eclipse 4.0: Will it be diverse and transparent?
By Doug Gaff
I started a small war today on the Planning Council mailing list after reading the Eclipse Project PMC announcement of a new component, called E4, as part of the Eclipse Project Incubator. Excerpt:
During the Eclipse Project 3.4 release cycle, one of the important plan items
was "Create the Eclipse 4.0 Plan". The intent of this work was to
identify the most pressing issues that would impact the ongoing success
of Eclipse, and come up with a plan to address them. The result was the
design of a new platform "e4", which will be the basis for Eclipse 4.0.
