Eclipse 4.0 SDK Coming in July
John Arthorne has announced plans for the forthcoming Eclipse 4.0 SDK.
This SDK will combine components from the Eclipse Platform, Java Development Tools, PHP Development Tools, Equinox, Eclipse Communication Framework, and Eclipse Modeling Framework projects, with the e4 components required to build the Eclipse 4.0 SDK. It will be released under the moniker of Eclipse 4.0 SDK, with no e4 labelling, as it incorporates plugins from several Eclipse sub-projects which exist outside of the e4 project.
CSS Styling, Modeled Workbench, and some of the core e4 programming model infrastructure will move out of the incubator prior to the Eclipse 4.0 SDK release. This will ensure that the SDK only depends on graduated components.
Eclipse 4.0 SDK has previously been made available as part of the e4 M5 release. The team are currently aiming for a July release for Eclipse 4.0 SDK.
