Marlboro Man and the Equinox Summit

My first day in Ottawa and all I can think about is the Marlboro Man. I guess since arrived late into Ottawa this evening for the Equinox Summit, I was blessed with a hotel room that was probably occupied by the Marlboro Man before I arrived. Since the hotel is full, I have to endure the smoky smell until tomorrow 😀

On the Eclipse-side of things, I released changes for 3.4M3 that will upgrade Bundle-RequiredExecutionEnvironment (BREE for short) from coach to first class (thank you Gary Duprex for your patches and patience). Why are BREE’s good? Read PaScaL’s blog post.

In the new plug-in project wizard, you’ll see an option to set your target environment:

Also, we now flag missing BREE’s in honor of Remy Suen who may suffer from a heart attack if people don’t set BREEs in their bundles.

Note: I know you can have multiple BREE’s per bundle, but we currently don’t support this scenario in the new plug-in project wizard due to the rarity. If additional BREE’s need to be added, PDE offers a fantastic forms-based editor and a source editor with code completion.

    It may have been more appropriate to specify the EE on the second page of the wizard, not on the first page.

    The first page is designed to specify the structure of the plug-in project, while the second one is designed to specify the content of the plug-in.
