one-step configuration option to include a Sencha Touch
installation. A PhoneGap Example built using Sencha Touch APIs is
included, and the plugin comes bundled with the latest Eclipse JSDT

available until their current subscription ends. Recordings will no
longer be available after account expiration, although recording
files, documents and chat transcripts can be downloaded before

is that the project will remain on SourceForge.net, but Dimdim will no longer be
contributing to this project.
