Eclipse Platform 4.4 (Luna) Milestone 1, Available

The annual Eclipse release typically indicates the beginning of summer. And if the back-to-school commercials aren’t an indication that summer is winding down, the restarting of the Eclipse milestones builds certainly is. Even with vacations and sunny weather, the Eclipse and Equinox teams have managed to put together the first milestone for the Eclipse Luna release.

There are a number of new features including better integration between the PDE and e4 based views:

e4-view

Information about the Target Definition currently in use:

target-statusbar

And a rewrite / refactoring of the Core Equinox Framework. In Luna, Equinox will provide a reference implementation of OSGi R6 Core Specification.
