    Open Budgeting

    Tuesday, November 22, 2005 - 12:50 by Mike Milinkovich
    We’re currently going through the process of creating an Eclipse Foundation budget for next year. A major part of this process is deciding what programs we want to support. We would all like to get community feedback on the programs we’re currently thinking about. Better yet, I would love to...

    Flip through changed files…

    Thursday, November 17, 2005 - 21:08 by Wayne Beaton
    Here’s a neat and (I believe) completely unintentional feature of Eclipse… If you’ve added your projects to SCM through Eclipse, it will mark changed files (and directories containing changed files) with an arrow (a “greater-than” sign) in the Navigator and Package Explorer. If you want to quickly flip through the...

    The Eclipse Data Centre

    Wednesday, November 16, 2005 - 16:20 by Wayne Beaton
    Denis took me down to the data centre today to have a gander at the Eclipse server rack. It’s pretty impressive (a little slice of nerd heaven). The rack is very well organized with all the cables neatly ordered. It’s all very well thought out and implemented. We were in...

    Leanin’ on Working Sets

    Sortin’ Tables

    Thursday, November 10, 2005 - 10:15 by Wayne Beaton
    I came across SWT Snippet192 today which shows some cool new features that are being added to Eclipse 3.2. I have a table in my application that I want to sort. Sorting is pretty easy to make work in table, but there’s one thing missing: the sort indicator. That is...

    RCP Case Studies

    Thursday, November 10, 2005 - 09:40 by Anonymous (not verified)
    We have created some case studies on how organizations are using Eclipse RCP. The intention is to provide some insight into how these organizations have benefited from using RCP. We are lucky enough to have Alterpoint, NASA, RSS Solutions and SAS agree to provide the information for their case study...

    I wrote a while back about life goal #129 and the resulting bug raised against my person. Frankly, the whole process has been very exciting for me, but–alas–we’re getting close to closing this bug.
