Eclipse in the Clouds?

By Doug SchaeferI'm not going to say much with this one. I'll just refer you to the comments people are adding to Boris's blog entry on his work with Mozilla to get an experimental IDE running in a browser with an Eclipse-based server back-end. Is this what developers working in the embedded and desktop space are asking for? Not that…

Beagle Board and Eclipse Distros

By Doug SchaeferWe had a meeting a few days ago amongst interested parties in an Eclipse IDE distribution for embedded. The idea would be to do something like I'm doing with Wascana which is supposed to make it easy for developers using open source tools, students especially, to get them up and running on Windows, and in turn showcase the…

Happy Birthday, Eclipse!

By Hans Juergen RauscherFive years ago, on February 2nd, 2004 the Eclipse Board of Stewards announced Eclipse's reorganization into a not-for-profit corporation. This was the start of a great success story for developers and development tool / plug-in providers, no question. (For those of you who are new to Eclipse: it provides, beside it's famous Java support, integrated development environments…

MinGW frustrations

By Doug SchaeferUm, yeah, Wascana 1.0 keeps slipping. Work has been very busy leaving little time for me to work on it, but that should be clearing up in the next few weeks (I hope!). But as I did my testing for the release candidate of CDT 5.0.2, as I expected, I ran headlong into the gdb 6.8 issue that…

J2ME? Why?

By Doug SchaeferI was just reading the slides presented from the kick-off meeting of the Eclipse Mobile Industry Working Group. I believe this is the first working group at Eclipse and I think it's a great concept. Bring groups of companies together that are interested in the same or similar technologies and do some planning. Hopefully that will result in…

VirtualBox 2.1 and assorted Christmas Fun

By Doug SchaeferJust some random thoughts on this Saturday after Christmas. My family and I had a good Christmas, despite a little "Fun with Autism" moment with my Autistic son, but it's all better now (patience is a key survival technique in our household). Yesterday was Boxing Day in Canada, which is a holiday here despite all the stores being…

December 2008 Board Meeting

By Doug Gaff Eclipse Board of Directors just completed our Q4 face-to-face in San Francisco. This was a 2-day meeting jammed with topics. I've focused this tome mostly on the committer-related issues. Watch for the official board minutes, and my apologies for the length. Board topics: Project Plans and the Roadmap Industry Working Groups and the Eclipse Mobile Working Group…

Time for Distributed Source Control is Now

By Doug Schaefer Imagine this scenario. You're part of a small team that's been following the CDT closely and have adopted it as the IDE for your commercial platform. You grab the CDT source at times convenient to your product deliver schedule and work on a local copy fixing bugs you find as you go through product testing. You're not…

A busy day for Khronos

By Doug Schaefer My Khronos.org News feed filled up all of a sudden today. Looks like they've been busy and had a couple of announcements to make.They released a new version of the 2D OpenVG spec. They added some APIs for text glyphing to make it easier to draw good looking text. I'm not sure anyone really uses OpenVG, especially…
