A few days ago Eclipse 3.6 aka Helios has been released and after playing around with it for a bit I realized that the update isn’t much of an issue. So, in trunk we are now building against Eclipse platform 3.6 and Buckminster 3.6 in case you wonder.

The only real change I did was enabling the taskbar progress feature that is present for Windows 7 and certain MacOS X versions. That’s pretty neat stuff and really simple to do too if you are working with jobs:

job.setProperty(IProgressConstants2.SHOW_IN_TASKBAR_ICON_PROPERTY, true);

Showing progress in the taskbar (Win7)
