[ecf-dev] ECF 1.0.0

Hi Folks,

I'm very happy to report that ECF 1.0.0 is now available.

My sincere thanks go to everyone that has contributed to the project, including all the committers, contributors, and community members that have helped the project by reporting bugs, requesting and providing enhancements, and generally have used ECF to do interesting things. I expect and hope that this will continue and grow. ECF is truly a community project.

I believe the future is bright for ECF...as the Equinox team is already using the ECF filetransfer API for the provisioning incubator, and there are both commercial and non-commercial uses of ECF planned and underway. Along with the fact that RCP, eRCP, and Equinox-based server development is increasing, ECF is appropriate and relevant in all those areas, and Eclipse-based team collaboration remains an important and underserved area in software development tools...especially for open source/open protocol approaches like ECF.

There are also plenty of application-level integrations of interest (e.g. with VOIP, improved/enhanced UI mechanisms, Shared editing, EMF/GMF, eRCP, Mylyn, Sudoku/other RCP apps, VNC app sharing, DSDP, Corona, and others). I'll send out an email soon with some thoughts about plans for coming releases and some announcements about possible collaborations and contributions in these areas. If you have thoughts about this please add to the discussion by posting to this newsgroup and ecf-dev@xxxxxxxxxxxx

This same release (1.0.0.v20070627-1030) will be deployed via the Europa update site as of this coming Friday (6/29).
