Context Help Editor

The tool-smiths behind PDE are at it again. In 3.4M5, we will bringing the Eclipse community a Help Context editor:

There’s still some polishing to do, but it all should be good before the 3.4M5 release date. Don’t know what help contexts are? Well that’s a shame, they are the magic behind the ‘context-sensitiveness’ of the Eclipse help system. If you’re writing some tooling or an RCP-based application that includes help, I highly recommend writing contexts to assist your end-users.

Many thanks to Curtis Windatt of Debug fame who got this contribution off the ground in time before feature freeze.

    Fantastic! I had to write a contexts file from scratch the other day and I almost died.
