This is a first review of my thoughts and prototypes of a new build system framework for CDT to replace the existing Managed Build. It's much simpler and more flexible, in theory. You can be the judge and set me straight :).

This is for our regular monthly call for October. I'll also demo the current state of the Launch Bar demo as used by the Arduino CDT IDE.

Great point on the configuration wizard being task based versus feature names. Will make a lot more sense to users. Need to figure out what the task list should be and then pick which features implement those tasks.

Wow, blogged for the first time in a long time, but this is important to me.

Got Wayland working on one of the desktops I have at home. I started with a minimal install of Fedora 18 and then built up from there following the instructions on the Wayland website. It's not much yet but it's a good start.

I've mentioned this many times in the past, but I consider Wayland the future of the Linux Desktop. Getting rid of X and it's madness will make it easy to build new and innovative environments.

This matters because great environments drive productivity and that's why we have these powerful machines on our desks or on our laps. I know how much they improve my productivity. Both Mac and Windows give me that. Having it on Linux would give me that experience on a great workstation-class OS on any workstation-class hardware I choose.

BTW, yes, I'm trying to bring the term "workstation" back to clearly differentiate it as more than just desktop. And to bring back visions of those great workstations we had before Wintel came and wrecked everything :)

Don't come here much, but every time I do I leave with the same feeling. Google+ blows. Planet Eclipse is even better.
