JavaOne announcements

Day 1 at JavaOne was a lot of fun. The Eclipse booth was busy and we gave away a lot of T-shirts. In good fun, we even had Roumen Strobl from the NetBean’s team come by to collect his Eclipse T-shirt. I am sure he will wear it proudly back in Prague.

JavaOne Fun

Well dropping by the Eclipse booth this afternoon really made my day.

On the first day of the exhibit hall being open, the interest in the Eclipse Passport and the Eclipse t-shirts has been awesome. When I dropped by there was a line of at least twenty people there waiting to pick theirs up. And wandering around I’ve been bumping into lots of people wearing the Eclipse buttons from the various sponsors.

Next Monday we are going to issue 3 press releases at JavaOne: 1)Release 1 will discuss the launch of 3.1 and the other project release, such as Web Tools, TPTP, etc., 2) Release 2 will highlight Eclipse RCP and 3) Release 3 will announce the 100th organization to join Eclipse.

Below are draft versions of release 1 & 2. I’ve collected substantial feedback from the project teams but I would certainly appreciate any feedback from the Eclipse community. bwt, I have not included a number of external quotes, since they still need to be approved.
