CDT Code Introspection APIs

By Doug SchaeferI'm just sitting in Markus's talk on the APIs the CDT provides to create code models, ASTs, the Indexer and ways of getting information out of there.

Slides from my Talk on the CDT Community

By Doug SchaeferI'm not sure why the EclipseCon submission system isn't accepting this but here are the slides from my talk on the Rise and Fall and Rise of the CDT, Lessons on Building Communities. I had a lot of fun creating and presenting this talk. I guess it's a passion of mine and people seemed to like it. The…

A Great EclipseCon Already

By Doug SchaeferI've been here at EclipseCon for 48 hours and it's been great already. I've met a lot of people here, like I always do, and it's a good sign that vendors still see Eclipse as important, enough to spend the money in these tough times to send their technical experts.EclipseCon is an important conference, especially for those who…

POWERVR goes MP

By Doug SchaeferI was just reading up on the news that Imagination Technologies has launched a new generation of their architecture that drives POWERVR. What's POWERVR, you ask?

Should Wascana get Qt?

By Doug SchaeferI've been working on my EclipseCon talk and tutorial, which I'm really looking forward to now.

And I'm hopeful it's useful to others working in open source, especially the things that didn't work…

This release has been a year in the making and is the result of almost 3,000 changesets from around 80 developers." The release was quickly put together in the last few days (i.e. in…

Way too much fun with qemu

By Doug SchaeferAs I've been blogging about lately, I'm getting ready for my EclipseCon tutorial which will walk the attendees through adding support for a cross-compile environment to the CDT. The target of this environment will be qemu running a tiny Linux platform which includes the latest release kernel, busybox, dropbear with sftp-server from OpenSSH, using the free glibc C…

Subversive vs. Subclipse

By Doug SchaeferOne of the most common Google searches I see in my Feedjit log is from people looking for help in the whole Subversive versus Subclipse debate. It has always dumbfounded me why we have two efforts building Eclipse team providers for Subversion. But I've long given up on fighting that battle.So as I start to dive into the…

CDT 6.0 M5 is Available, BTW

By Doug SchaeferI've been "nose to the grindstone" since the holiday break getting our Wind River Installer out the door, twice. But the good news is that the CDT contributors have been very busy working on CDT 6.0 while I wasn't looking very hard. I have been waiting for the C/C++ IDE Package for M5 to be built. In the…
