<p><b>Update Notes</b> <br>
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; - We recommend using the Eclipse 3.3M7 release due to the 
numerous UI improvements (see Eclipse 3.3 only items below).<br>
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; - 2.0M2 and later releases will reset your task activity timings 
(Mylyn now uses a new and much more robust timing mechanism).<br>
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; - The offline task data cache will be reset, so submit outgoing changes before 
	updating.<br>
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; - If upgrading from a 0.x version, first update to Mylyn 1.0 
and see the corresponding <a href="http://eclipse.org/mylyn/doc/new-1.0.html">
update notes</a>.<br>
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; - Trac xml-rpc users: you will
<a href="http://wiki.eclipse.org/index.php/Mylar_FAQ#Trac_Connector">need the 
latest</a> XmlRpcPlugin.<br>&nbsp;</p>

			</td>
			<td valign="top" width="70%">
			The <i>Task List</i> layout has been updated to use a custom drawn 
			tree instead of relying on multiple columns in order to provide the 
			following improvements:<ul>
				<li>Support for subtasks (for an example see the Bugzilla section)</li>
				<li>The icon columns no longer take up a large amount of 
				horizontal space, making more of the Summary visible.&nbsp; Sort 
				using <i>Sort by</i> in the view menu.</li>
				<li>The table header and horizontal scrollbar are gone, making 
				2-3 more tasks visible.</li>
				<li>The icon scheme has been updated to make incoming indicators 
				easier to pick out, hits more consistent with tasks, and the 
				kind of task appear on the icon (see the <i>Help -&gt; Mylyn UI 
				Legend</i> for the updated scheme).&nbsp; Note in particular 
				that new tasks now have the task icon background and are 
				distinguished by a special incoming indicator.</li>
			</ul>
			<p>Note that the incoming overlays can also be configured to use the 
			Synchronize view style icons and left-facing placement via <i>Preferences -&gt; Task List 
				-&gt; Layout</i>.&nbsp; Please use
			<a href="https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=182772">bug

		The offline support has been improved to be more transparent.&nbsp; 
		Offline data for all tasks, even unread ones, is downloaded in the 
		background, so before going offline all you need to do is run one successful 
		synchronization.&nbsp; If switching frequently between being connected 
		note that you can toggle background synchronizations via the <i>
		Synchronize Automatically</i> button in the <i>Task List</i> view menu.&nbsp; 
		Opening repository tasks is now much faster due to synchronization and 
		offline concurrency improvements.&nbsp; Any submission errors are now 
		shown on the task editor header (Eclipse 3.3) instead of the <i>Error 
		Log</i> view.&nbsp; Also note that the <i>History</i> button is now on 
		the toolbar and a <i>Submit </i>buttons has been added as well.<p>

			to 3.2 users for the next release.&nbsp; If installed it will ask to 
			run once every three weeks, at which point you will see statistics 
			displayed as below.&nbsp; We then ask that you share your usage data 
			with the community, via the <i>Submit to Eclipse.org</i> button, so 
			that it can help inform Eclipse developers how the UI is being used.&nbsp; 
			Note that only interaction events that have IDs starting with &quot;org.eclipse&quot; 
			will be uploaded in order to avoid having private ID names made 
			public.&nbsp; Note that the information gathered also includes
