Post #18 – Indigo SR1 Released

Hi all,

Indigo SR1 has been released and Sequoyah is present in an Eclipse train one more time.

Since it is a service release, we had only bugs fixes. You can check the list of bugs fixed in this release in this search.

Also, you can find the download links in our homepage: http://www.eclipse.org/sequoyah.

Best!

Post #17 – Google Summer of Code 2011 – 16 June, 2011 – 13h00 (GMT-3)

We would like to share with the community our progress in GSoC. Lucas, who is contributing with the PDE support in GSoC, has been doing a very good job in understanding the problem to be solved and proposing a solution. Our communication has evolved nicely, and here is an example of a report sent by him, where he relates what steps he accomplished in a week and also the steps for the following week.

Planned for last week

  • Get more familiar with the code Sequoyah
  • Do my first patch
  • And make tests by myself with the code.
  • Accomplished last two weeks
    These last two weeks I worked on the new schema that will make the editor understand Eclipse projects, in order to do that I worked on the package “org.eclipse.sequoyah.localization.pde”
    Also I finished the french translation of some components [1]

    Planned for this week
    I will have a meeting tomorrow with my tutors, who will help me with some issues and also help to fix the milestones for the next weeks. Last weeks I’ve been a little busy with the last tests and work at my university, but now I can devote myself completely to the project.

    Thanks Lucas for your interest in the project and your great effort!

We have added a proposal to the GSoC 2011 program: Add multi-language support to Eclipse plugin projects. With this proposal, we want to make our Localization Framework Editor capable of understanding Eclipse projects, so that it can be used by the Eclipse community. Interested parties are welcome to leave a comment here or in the soc-dev mailing list. :)

We also thank Lucas for his interest in the project! He’s showing a lot of commitment to the program and has read and studied a lot to write his proposal and understand the Eclipse environment! Keep up the great work, Lucas! :)

Post #15 – Sequoyah has moved to Tools project – 18 Mar, 2011 – 13h00 (GMT-3)

As part of the DSDP Restructuring process, Sequoyah has moved to Tools project. Hence, the following items have been affected and updated: SVN repository, Bugzilla, IPLogs and web resources in general (download pages, web site, wiki page, blog). Those changes shouldn’t affect Sequoyah users in any way different than reconfiguring SVN access and using different download pages. If you find any problem, please contact us in our mailing list.

Post #13 – Helios SR1 Fresh Out of the Oven – 24 Sep, 2010 – 16h30 (GMT-3)

Helios SR1 has just been released. Every project part of the Simultaneous Release Train can provide updates in the SR1 release, and Sequoyah did so with version 1.0.1.

In this release you can find fixes for minor bugs in Sequoyah (since it is a service release). You can check the list of bugs fixed in this release with this search.

You can either download 3.6.1 flavors here (SR1 provides also an updated Pulsar package) or update to Helios SR1 from within Eclipse using Help->Check for Updates.

Give it a try and send us feedback, comments or suggestions in our mailing list!

Now let’s go to Helios SR2 and Indigo!

Post #12 – Simultaneously running – 19 Aug, 2010 – 13h04 (GMT-3)

Joining an ongoing simultaneous release is something you won’t forget: lots of things to check, lots of things to make compliant, lots of milestones coming up, lots of things to check again for the next milestone… yeah, it’s a bit of a hush, hehehe! But it is a nice, warm feeling when you see things on schedule and even more when the release train ends and your project is there, with all other projects that were steps ahead of you! :)

This happened for Sequoyah from the last months of 2009 to this June, when Sequoyah was adapting from being an incubation project and developing to maturity, to be released together with Eclipse Helios. I am saying most of this for myself, but I don’t think it was much different for my teammates. The hush and the warm feeling are the same!

Now, for Indigo release train, we are in a much more comfortable position, since we are already compliant with lots of those items, and we know a little bit more on how the process works (even though we still come with some newbie questions sometimes, as the guys on cross-project-dev mailing list would easily confirm, hehe). But for this release we already know when we should make our builds available for the aggregator, when will the packages come for us to test, which bugs to merge for the next build, and things like that.

This was actually the reason I started to write this post:
we have joined the Eclipse Indigo Simultaneous Release Train!

As of today, we have our 1.1.0.I20100816-0145 Sequoyah build available for the Indigo aggregator to build the composite repository for the first milestone. We have also made available a new build of the Pulsar plugins, namely 1.1.1.I20100816-0515.

Things will probably change a lot before the RC weeks come next year, but it’s now a much more fun work to do, knowing a little bit of what to expect! I’ll try to share some more of my experience in the weeks to come. If it is not useful for you, maybe you just laugh a little, and that’s fine too! See you around!
