ECF 0.9.4 on 12/2/2006

ECF 0.9.4 stable will be available on 12/2/2006. The new things will be two UI extension points, to allow ECF providers to create custom configuration wizards and connect wizards. The extension points are org.eclipse.ecf.ui.configurationWizards and org.eclipse.ecf.ui.connectWizards. Both are in the org.eclipse.ecf.ui plugin.

Also, the UI/Example application refactoring has begun, with initial changes/refactoring of the RosterView. For the next few releases (0.9.4+) there will be many more changes to the UI and example application code as the focus has shifted from UI to application refactoring.

ECF 0.9.3 stable released

ECF 0.9.3 (the 'API refactoring' release) is available here. The new and noteworthy describes the changes made to the APIs. NOTE: This is a backward-compatibility breaking release, as some of the code moved out of existing packages and into new plugins and packages. The API refactoring was driven by requests and requirements described here.
