[edt-dev] What's New in M3?


The following is a list of features that I believe were added to the EDT project in milestone 3, according to a search of resolved enhancements in bugzilla.  If you think something should not be on this list, or if you think that something is missing, let me know.

[NOTE: The purpose of this list will be to draw attention to new features or changes that were made since the last milestone.  While we may have added or enhanced support for existing features in M3, we will probably not add them to this list if it was not a 'significant' change (e.g. adding support for an existing  language feature, where that feature was specified in a prior milestone and the specification did not change in M3.]
