Help name Eclipse Juno +1

Eclipse Indigo is out and Eclipse Juno development is in full swing. That means it’s time to start thinking about the Eclipse release in 2013 (Only 18 months away). While development plans are still a far ways off, we’ve already started to collect ideas for the name.

Historically Eclipse has chosen names in Alphabetical order (Helios, Indigo, Juno), which brings us to the letter ‘K’. Since some alphabets don’t have the letter ‘C’, we could explore names like Kanada or Kookie Monster.

Of course, we can also go with villains from Star Trek like Klingon or Khan

    Do Eclipse 4 releases get names?

  2. Ian Bull says:

    Juno (the upcoming version of Eclipse) will be based on the Eclipse 4.2 platform. Next year K[.*] will be based on the 4.3 platform. The version of the Eclipse platform doesn’t really matter in terms of the release. The release is just the name given to all the components that will ship their bytes on the 4th Wednesday in June (I assume that’s the date again this year).
