Why is this good news? Well, if we look at the Galileo calendar, Galileo GA’s next week!
If you want to get Galileo a bit faster, I highly recommend supporting Eclipse development by becoming a Friend of Eclipse. By donating a bit of money, you get access to Galileo earlier and you get access to a faster download mirror. Note that you can use this mirror for other Eclipse releases, including when Eclipse starts releasing 3.6 milestones. I personally find the mirror worth the small donation. I’m able to get my integration builds much faster than usual 🙂
If you like to blog, the Eclipse Foundation is hosting a Galileo blog-a-thon. The rules are simple, blog about Galileo and get your choice of a ‘Friend of Eclipse’ membership, a customized t-shirt or a golf shirt. If your blog entry happens to be really good, you have a chance at winning an Eclipse jacket and a full pass to EclipseCon 2010 or Eclipse Summit Europe 2009.
If you’re into Twitter, become part of the Twitterati that are following the Galileo release!
There will also be a virtual conference entitled Galileo in Action. There will be talks about Mylyn, ECF, p2 and more!
If you want to learn more about the Galileo release, I highly suggest you register and attend.
Other than that, enjoy Galileo!
