Schindl's list

If you've ever been on the list, you'll know it. The one I'm talking about is Schindl's list. Tom Schindl finds the bugs, reports them, patches when he can and forces the fixes through. Thanks Tom. The list is life.

The fake Steve Northover

The fake Steve Northover will be attending EclipseCon tomorrow and showing up at random in some of the talks. You will be able to tell the real one from the fake one easily. The fake one cannot play the guitar and will use manager-speak, saying things like "break down the silos".

Meanwhile, the real Steve Northover is at home, working on e5.

Exciting news!

We've begun working on e5, the new generation Eclipse platform based on e4. It will be written from top to bottom entirely in XML because the brackets have officially changed.

In case you don't know what that means, first the brackets were Lisp (), then Smalltalk [], then Java {} and now XML <>. The code between the brackets is about the same, except in the XML case where math is not allowed.

All work is being performed behind closed doors in a evil lair.

I'm speaking at e4Con

Holy crap, what a bunch of trouble I caused. I'm not going to comment on the whole e4 thing because McQ and others have done this already way better. The fact is, we're looking for smart people to help define e4 and work on it.

It could be you.

I'm a friend of e4! Donate to e4!
