Recently I attended Eclipsecon 2009, an Eclipse community conference in Santa Clara, CA. Like previous years, the conference was very well organized and had sessions on various topics ranging from e4 (code name for Eclipse 4.0 release) to Cloud Computing. There was a lot of buzz and even a separate track for e4 - so let me begin by blogging on e4.
General sense I got was that Eclipse community has ambitious plans to make significant changes to Eclipse 4.0. More than 40 committers are working on Eclipse 4.0 release and the Eclipse community intends to deliver e4 Tech Preview in July, 2009 and the GA in summer 2010. They plan to provide a compatibility layer from Eclipse 3.x to Eclipse 4.x so there can be gradual adoption of Eclipse 4.0.
Some key highlights of the areas that they are planning changes:
From OpenEdge Architect Perspective, we would need to keep an eye out on developments in e4 so that in future, we can leverage the full potential of the e4 to provide lot of these cool productivity enhancing new features to the OpenEdge developer community.
