Callisto simultaneous release1
Callisto Simultaneous Release

  • http://www.eclipse.org/callisto

  • The projects collectively decided to simultaneously release ten of the major Eclipse projects in June.

    • BIRT, CDT, DTP, EMF, GEF, GMF, Platform, TPTP, WTP, VE

  • This will be a new valuable characteristic of Eclipse projects.

  • This is a major commitment by the projects to work at the boundaries between projects.

  • To make this work, the projects need help from the community (that’s you) in testing and reporting problems early in the cycle.

  • The Foundation is going to host a contest (with prizes!) around Callisto bug reports.
