preference API for storing settings. Users will also find a new
fileCommands extension point, where plugins can contribute commands
to the navigator, and an API that allows users to customise the
displayed size of tabs.

Orion have also unveiled their new logo, designed by Yiying Lu,
who created Twitter’s ‘Fail Whale’ graphic.

composition. Xtext has been upgraded to 1.0, and Spring to 3.0, and
