MPC 1.2 is Feature complete M7 and on track for GA release. It is included in all packages scheduled for the release.
The project leadership certifies that the APIs in this release are "Eclipse Quality".
This release addresses specific concerns about MPC usability and significant bugs. Further, this release strives to make the Marketplace Client even more attractive to users by providing more social information about available solutions in the MPC client and by making it a channel for both Marketplace- and ecosystem-related news.
- MPC should communicate Eclipse news to end users by showing the Eclipse newsletter (or alternative news for the current 3rd-party marketplace) inside the wizard; and
- End users should see install counts and star ratings of solutions in the MPC wizard and easily interact with the web-based Marketplace voting;
There are no architectural changes in this release.
