This release addresses specific concerns about MPC usability and significant bugs.
The Marketplace Client will become more attractive to users by focusing on presenting solutions relevant to the current Eclipse environment and by enabling better control over the installation of optional add-ons. Additionally, an effort will be made to improve the Marketplace Client's UI performance.
Furthermore, users will be presented with related solutions based on their current install, giving them the opportunity to discover new interesting plug-ins. Initially, this will show solutions by authors from whom the user already has a plug-in installed. This will also help plug-in authors by giving visibility to their other solutions.
The project leadership certifies that the APIs in this release are "Eclipse Quality".
