The second highlight today: Our #Eclipse   #RAP  3.0 release.
 
RAP 3.0 has shipped together with Eclipse Mars. With API clean-up and dropped support for deprecated browsers, it is now slimmer and faster than ever before. Get it from RAP downloads page or with the new Eclipse package for RCP and RAP developers. Enjoy!
It's good to be back. rap3 After using half-year release cycles for the RAP 2.x versions, taking a full year for RAP 3.0 felt eerily long. On the other hand I think it was exactly the time we needed to create a release that we can be proud of. html5java While there was some debate the last time ...

Had a great day with Lisa today...

Lisa Alpha, N26292, is one of the Grumman AA5A's in Frankfurt Egelsbach (EDFE), and after my checkout today it's very likely that I will fly them soon again.

Today's destination: Lake Tahoe KTVL in 6269ft with a Cessna Turbo 182T #N1325D.

Lake Tahoe was on my wish-list of destinations for many years, and the weather conditions today couldn't have been better. I flew with +Mark Erwin and +Florian Waibel from #KPAO to #KTVL in a turbo 182 which is really a nice plane, and much easier to fly than I thought before. Really great great experience! Flying through the mountains which were still covered with some snow, beautiful. The lake: blue, deep, and probably very cold. And finally another just-for-fun landing at the Blue Canyon (#KBLU) airport in the mountains... extremely cool.

Beautiful trip in a Cessna from KPAO (Palo Alto) to a private grass airstrip (CA66) at the beach. That would be the perfect location for having a picnic under the tree and overlooking the sea.

While we are still in the process of preparing our #OSGi tutorial for #EclipseCon ... here's a preview about what you can expect.
What do we talk about when we are in the kitchen? About OSGi, of course. Many of us at EclipseSource are using OSGi as base-technology in different projects since a long time, some of us in really old projects. From time to time we were enviously glancing at the new possibilities that came with ...

Eclipse Luna SR2 RC2 is now available, and Eclipse Mars M5 is ready, too. Both are available from the development tab on the download page. Many thanks to all the developers!

All EPP packages now include the new Automated Error Reporting (thanks to +Marcel Bruch) which will help us to get early feedback about errors that happen on users computers. The second highlight is Oomph which is now integrated into all packages (thanks to +Ed Merks and +Eike Stepper ) and which will help all of us to manage our preferences, targets, workspaces, settings, ... Great improvements to the packages!

If you want to leave feedback, here are the two bug reports:

Add Automated Error Reporting to all EPP packages

#Toulouse - Music everywhere in town.

I think I've been listening to more than 50 bands on small and big stages. And they are still celebrating in the streets. That's a very nice feeling of summer!

This was my final flight (for now) in California and definitively one of the highlights this year. I was invited for a Bay Tour on board of a Meyers 200D, one of the fastest single engine piston planes in this class ever.

We started our Bay Tour from Palo Alto (KPAO), followed the Highway 101 with the class bravo airport KSFO to our right. Then I high speed descent to downtown San Francisco with great views of the Bay Bridge, the skyscrapers of the Financial District, Alcatraz Island, and of course a midspan overflight over the great Golden Gate Bridge. Just amazing. Thank you, Mark, I'll keep that flight in my memory!

(Top speed during that flight... 193 kts (357.7 km/h) GS. I've never been flying faster myself.)

After the long flight to San Francisco #EclipseCon  I was visiting the cockpit. Very nice and extremely friendly +Lufthansa crew, thanks a lot! It turned out that this very plane was the first A380 delivered to Lufthansa in 2010 and as such an old acquaintance because I know D-AIMA from the training flights in EDSB/Karlsruhe.
