I believe I've convinced this machine to send *only* plain text now. Note 
that it should have been sending both html and plain text previously, so 
you ought to have been able to convince your mailer to show the plain text 
version.

Sorry for the eyestrain, all. It looked fine when I sent it.

Hello,

How about plain text emails please? HTML with the font size set to 
sub-atomic is a real bother to read since I have to increase the font 
size to even SEE if there anything in there I should care about.

Thanks,
Gary

 Discussion Topics

----------
 Outreach
----------

Code camp in Toronto this week.

EclipseCon:
- ElipseCON 2004 is a resounding success!
- pictures, news, and reports from the conference are here:
  - http://www.eclipse.org/events/eclipsecon2004/live.html

--------
 Status
--------

Debug:
- bug fixing and M7 shakedown
- Inspect/Display results in lightweight popup windows
- context menu launching - "Run >" appears in the context menu
- the ability to use "Step into Selection" on any line in the Java 
debugger
  (used to be limited to current line of execution)
- ability to prepend/append to the default runtime classpath for a Java
  project on a Java launch config
- refactoring support for Java launch configurations
- EclipseCon Debug Technology Exchange. Turnout for the tech exchange 
    
was
  
  larger than expected, which resulted in a BOF. Some common themes 
    
among
  
  debug developers are scalability issues (different 
    
debuggers/languages,
  
  and debuggers supporting a larget number of 
threads/frames/variables), a
  dynamic debug model (rather than the strict hierarchy defined in
  Eclipse), and issues around multi-threaded debug models which are more
  pertinent in 3.0 with background jobs.
- EclipseCon Ant poster and BOF. Encouraging turnout for the poster and
  BOF. We were able to work with some developers in a "plug-in clinic"
  style, and develop relationships with developers interested in
  contributing to Eclipse.

Ant:
- bug fixing and M7 shakedown
- demo for importing existing project in the local filesystem into the
  workspace, based on an existing build file
- editor enhancements

Rel. Eng.:
- investigating causes of missing org.eclipse.jdt.core* source in 
midnight
  builds
- testing builds with jdks in new location
- moved to using JDK levels specified in updated 3.0 plan for building 
and
  testing, i.e. Sun J2SE 1.4.2_03 on Windows and Linux.
- PDF doc generation
- investigating how to take performance measurements during automated 
JUnit
  tests, analysis of data, automated reporting of results using an 
existing
  performance testing framework
- testing M7 warm-up, test and candidate builds in Eclipse build 
    
process.
  
Platform/JDT Text:
- EclipseCon tutorials, talks, and poster presentations
- occurrence Highlighter promoted from work in progress to Java > 
Editor -
  Appearance preference page
- a new preference allows to choose whether occurrence annotations are 
sticky
  or not
- spell checking for comments and strings is now available in the Java 
editor.
  - to enable this feature a word list must be provided. See Java > 
Editor >
    Spelling preference page.
- linked mode decoration is done via annotations and can be configured
- new annotation decoration styles have been introduced, e.g. boxing
- bug fixing

JDT/UI:
- attending EclipseCon
- bug fixing
- worked on filtering matches in import statements when searching for 
type
  references
- experimenting with reduced Java search result tree
- improved Java Workspace Search scope when searching for references. 
    
The
  
  scope is limited to those projects which are able to reference the 
element
  to search for

Compare:
- working on outline view support for Compare Editor

Team/CVS:
- testing for M7
- finishing synchronize APIs. Work is still branched (plan on 
releasing early
  in M8).
- CVS console ported to new generic console support from
  org.eclipse.ui.console.

Equinox:
- recovering from RCP excitement at EclipseCon
- renewed interest in documenting what we are doing and fixing bugs
- improved runtime error reporting and logging
- good progress on the OSGi specification changes
- consolidation of command line options and system properties

Platform/Core:
- working on a first cut of non-uniform encoding support

- good progress on the new preferences mechanism:
  - finalizing API
  - implemented the compatibility layer
  - defining the scope precedence/lookup order

PDE Build:
- Starting to investigate updating PDE build for runtime changes

Platform UI:
- 1/2 of the team members at EclipseCon
- worked on demos and talks for EclipseCon
- ongoing work for New Look stream
- ongoing work for RCP Themes
- ongoing work for Workbench Intro
- bug fixing
