The EBam project  is undertaking a 0.8 Release review  from Dec 15-22.
I'm very excited to tell you about two new project proposals.
WindowBuilder  is already known as one of the best Java GUI builders
on the market. It supports both SWT and Swing and is fully
bi-directional, meaning that you can work on the code or the visual
design – it’s your choice. Just as importantly, the architecture is
extensible so the team hopes to see additional designers built on top.
Part of the goal here will be to create an ecosystem of open source and
commercial extensions that make use of WindowBuilder’s core
functionality to create GUI designers, as Google plans to do with its
GWT Designer offering.
Runtime Analysis Tools (RAT)  comes from CodePro Profiler, an
excellent Java application profiling tool. The profiler supports Java
developers to inspect the running applications, find performance
bottlenecks, detect memory leaks and solve problems regarding thread
concurrency in Java applications.
Both of these projects intend to join the simultaneous release to be
part of Indigo. They should also find a place in one of more of the
downloadable Eclipse packages. I hope that you're as excited about this
as I am ;-)
If you have any questions about the new projects, post them on the
Proposals Forum .
