Eclipse Projects: What’s New on April 20, 2011

We have three reviews are scheduled for the week of April 20-27/2011. You can provide feedback on these reviews on the channels indicated in the review documents, or on the eclipse.proposals forum.

As is their tradition, the EGit and JGit projects have combined their respective 0.12.0 releases into a convenient single review document. EGit and JGit is playing a very important role as we move forward with making Git first-class at Eclipse. One of the key success criteria for Git at Eclipse is the creation of a “quality team provider and tooling for git“. I believe that EGit is well on the way to satisfying that criteria, but we need your assistance (your feedback in particular) to make that happen.

The Eclipse SMILA project’s 0.8.0 release review is also on the schedule. SMILA is an extensible framework for building search solutions to access unstructured information in the enterprise. Besides providing essential infrastructure components and services, SMILA also delivers ready-to-use add-on components, like connectors to most relevant data sources.

We’ve added some new proposals. Again, please provide your feedback on the eclipse.proposals forum.

The BPMN 2.0 Modeler provides a graphical modeling tool which allows creation and editing of BPMN ( Business Process Modeling Notation ) diagrams. The tool is built on Eclipse Graphiti and uses the BPMN 2.0 EMF meta model currently being developed within the Eclipse Model Development Tools (MDT) project.

You’ve probably heard a lot about Orion over the past couple of months. It’s time for Orion to leave the incubator and become a proper Eclipse project. The Orion project‘s focus is creating components, services, and libraries for building web-based development tools. This includes browser client infrastructure built using widely adopted web technologies such as HTML, JavaScript, and CSS. Also included is server-side infrastructure needed by such development tools. This includes infrastructure supporting file management, search, user management, preferences, generic source control, compare, file history, editors, and user interface widgets and controls required to build development tools.
