Release Notes

Mylar 0.3.9 released 2005-09-26

Mylar 0.3.9.1 is now available, includes numerous bug fixes, and support for Eclipse 3.2M2.  Unfortunately due to changes in Eclipse 3.2M2 it is no longer possible for the same plug-ins to support both 3.1 and 3.2.  But fortunately it was possible to coerce the update site allow you to select either the 3.1 or 3.2 based feature.  Another key change in this release is that the Mylar Monitor has been almost entirely decoupled from the UBC user study in preparation for the 0.4 release, and is now available in CVS at dev.eclipse.org.

Acknowledgements

Thanks go out to Wes Coelho for contributing making the Previous/Next task navigation in the Task List persistent, and for helping provide a previous of whether a task has context.  Also, Eugene Kuleshov came up with the really good idea of making landmark creation work by dragging an element to an Active view (see below).

Mylar 0.3.8 released 2005-09-19

Mylar 0.3.8 is now available and provides the first cut at predicted interest facilities such as Active Search (new & noteworthy snippets are below).  These features are available for those users who update and are in Phase 2 of the user study (under Preferences -> Mylar -> User Study must have over 25000 events).  If you should be in Phase 2 but don’t see the Phase 2 update site email mylar@cs.ubc.ca.  The focus for this week is refactoring awareness and continuing to de-couple the UBC study.  Special thanks goes out to Brian de Alwis for identifying some important Linux/GTK issues.

Mylar 0.3.7 released 2005-09-12

Mylar 0.3.7 is now available.  The most notable changes are synchronization status for Bugzilla (pasted from the New & Noteworthy below) and a move to extension points for the Mylar bridges.  The focus for this week is improving Active Search and Active Hierarchy performance and integration, and 0.3.8 will be the first release of these facilities.

Mylar 0.3.4 released 2004-08-15

Mylar 0.3.4 is out with an improved task list and the bug fixes listed below.  Note that due to vacation schedules this was a 3 week cycle and not our usual 1 week cycle.  A big thanks goes out Eugene Kuleshov who has been very helpful in clearly outlining usability issues and providing some great ideas for enhancements.  The focus for this week’s 0.3.5 release will be addressing those usability issues and getting Active Search to the point where we start using it for our daily development.

Mylar 0.3.3 released 2005-07-25

Mylar 0.3.3 is out and has had some substantial improvements in terms of both UI and architecture.  Most of the key bugs have been addressed, and we’re now focusing on usability enhancements and refinements.  We also worked on Active Search, but that needs considerably more effort and won’t be release until mid or late next month.  Please note that I will be away on vacation for most of the next two weeks, so send any critical questions to Shawn (sminto@cs.ubc.ca).

Mylar 0.3.2 released 2005-07-18

0.3.2 went out on Friday evening with a lot of improvements, hardening of the UI and a de-coupling of the Tasks plug-in from the Mylar UI.  For this Friday’s 0.3.3 release we’ll be focusing on fixing any bugs that come in as a result of people starting to use Phase 1, improving the usability of active views, creating extension points to help manage the loose coupling we created last week, and making the remaining planned enhancements to the task list.

Mylar 0.3.0 released 2005-07-04

The first cut at the Mylar 0.3.1 preview release is scheduled for this Friday.  All sources are up on eclipse.org, other than the monitor feature, which will have to remain at UBC for the duration of the study.  Planning and discussions should take place on this list from now on. Each Monday I will report on the tasks that we have completed in the past week, the P1 tasks that need to be done this week, and the P2 tasks that would nice to have done this week.  All reports marked as P3 should be considered when we schedule the following week’s tasks.  For the duration of the study we’ll rev the minor-minor version number each Friday, making those updates available to study subjects.  I’ll keep the following page up-to-date as our conventions evolve: http://eclipse.org/mylar/dev.html
