Eclipse Platform UI Lead Leaves IBM

Boris Bokowski, the Eclipse Platform UI lead, has announced that
he is taking a job with Google, after six years of
working for IBM. He will be working on web-based tools at Google’s
Munich office, although he is unclear what this change in
employment will mean for his Eclipse contributions, saying “I may
be able to remain an Eclipse committer, but it will definitely no
longer be my main job.”


JRuby 1.6.3 Released

JRuby 1.6.3 has been released. This release includes
fixes for some incompatibilities for the 1.9 language, and core
class fixes, and improves the Ruby object construction performance.
The full list of issues resolved can be viewed at the release
announcement. JRuby 1.6.3 can be downloaded now.


Grails-Based CMS Reaches 1.0

Following two and a half years of work, the Grails-based
content management system has reached version 1.0.
The 1.0 release adds new tags, including wcm:ancestorOfType,
wcm:findNode, and wcm:resource, and adds a “User specific content”
flag on Template nodes. A configurable list of “Space templates” is
also supported, allowing users to create a new space from a given
template displayed in a drop-down. More information is available at
the Release Notes.


Android Development Tools 12.0.0 Released

Version 12.0.0 of the Android Development Tools
(ADT) Eclipse plugin is now available. In this release, the new
Visual Layout Editor’s support for RelativeLayouts has been
revamped, and now features guideline suggestions when users drag
into or within the layout. Drawables and colors are now previewed
in the resource chooser dialogues, and the error messages and links
for rendering errors have been improved. Please note that ADT
12.0.0 is designed to be used with SDK Tools r12.
