The first e4 milestone

The first e4 milestone

Wow, I just saw the new and noteworthy posted for the first e4 milestone. There’s a lot of stuff there! I’m amazed that the e4 team was able to get this milestone out given that a lot of them were also working on the Eclipse 3.5M5 release.

Anyways, here are some of my favorite noteworthy items:

CSS Support for SWT


RCP Mail CSS Example


SWT Browser Edition


Heck, there’s even a basic ActionScript development environment… cross-compilation debugger magic!

If you like what you see, why not get involved with the e4 project to help shape the future of Eclipse!

    Did you have a look at the class diagram in ?

    Everything is prefixed with an “M” here, this probably stands for “Merks”? They could have prefixed it with “E” for “Eclipse”, but then that is already use in the “E”core models (where it stands for “Ed”, as we all know 😉

    Jorg, we adopted the “M” prefix just recently to avoid name clashes with the SWT classes (i.e. MenuItem). This was making the development very painful.

    We did offer up the “E” for Ed prefix as one of the options…;-).
