A few years ago, I offered to kiss Maureen Leelands feet if she gave us designer in Eclipse. An offer made more heroic because it was during DNUG in a hot summer. And finally - its taken a while - its now being shown on stage.. Wow.
So what are the high points.. Eclipse based designer released in 8.5!!Not immediately on Mac and Linux but appears to be a soft commitment.There will be a public beta. No dates announced yetDemo using 'a newer version than this morning'.. ;-) Eclipse allows us to see all elements in the NSF as a virtual file systemInfobox is migrating to property pages (not all done in first releases)New editors in Eclipse...Lotusscript editor has typeahead, class browsing, etc. Very cool.New design elements -
Demo of XPages. Wow."We're not taking ANYTHING away".Futures. LotusScript debugger not in 8.5 release. Formula editor debugger not in 8.5. Lots more extension points. 8.5 will ship this year
Its looking good..
