As everyone is verifying bugs, and doing
final teasing this last week, it is easier than ever to do so with a "full
Do not be lulled in to thinking "its
too late ... it won't help anyway at this late date".
Because even if we could not literally
fix some bad bug in the next week, we may be able to find
some work arounds or at least document
"warnings" about some problems. And, those are
very helpful to the Eclipse community
and adopters.Some users are actually starting to

This will get you all the latest, except
for those 10 bugs we fixed in RC6 ... to get those, you do need to manually
define a remote update site (after installing
and get the latest WTP features from
From our WTP "milestone" update
site, you can also get the latest and greatest JSF and Dali builds installed
(I haven't personally tried those yet,
so please do, and let me know if there are "bugs").
