[eclipse-dev] Planning Meeting Notes - Nov 17, 2004

 Discussion Topics



- concentrated on fixing backlog of bugs (fixed about 50)
- reviewed backlog of deferred bugs, closed about 10% (50+)
- added API to allow clients to launch configurations without
  registering a launch (i.e. hidden launch)
- added extension point to allow debuggers to contribute a custom
  dialog for editing a variable's value
- added support for key-bindings on launch actions - for example, 
  "Debug As > Java Application" is bound to "Alt+Shift+D, J". Will
  file enhancement requests against other components to provide
  key-bindings for their launch shortcuts.
- backported performance tests

- bug backlog fixing (about 15 fixed)
