  presentation at ICE 2003 on Tuesday afternoon
  - see http://www.iceconference.com/

--------
 Status
--------

General

Debug:
- debug plug-ins no longer depend on xerces plug-in. The XML files we
  persist are no longer formatted with white space - however, since these
  files are not intended to be human readable, this is not an issue
  (launch config files, for example).
- new "org.eclipse.core.variables" plug-in will be released to HEAD
  *after* this weeks integration build, and will be available for next week

Ant:
- Ant plug-ins no longer depend on xerces plug-in. Getting code assist to work
  in the Ant Editor with JAXP APIs was more work than we anticipated, due to
  missing column (source index) positions in JAXP.

Releng:
- bug triage with team and bug fixing
- 2.1.2 RC2 build Wednesday Oct 22, 2pm EDT as per 2.1.2 endgame plan
  (http://dev.eclipse.org/viewcvs/index.cgi/%7Echeckout%7E/eclipse-project-home/plans/freeze_plan_2_1_2.html)

    with Responsive UI

Help:
- removed dependency on Xerces
- one more NL bug fix for 2.1.2 RC2

  the implementation (otherwise, help would be broken and no help books
  would appear)

PDE:
- OSGi work progresses well - most 'New Bundle' code templates (including
  'Hello, World') now working. We can create a new bundle (with or without
  content), migrate a plug-in into a bundle, update bundle classpath,
  support bundle fragments etc.

  the site content)
