The project leadership certifies that the APIs in this release are "Eclipse Quality".
There are no new or noteworthy architectural issues with this release. The CDT committers continue to strive to make the project easy to extend.
Documentation is getting very little attention. On the other hand, questions from users on the mailing list, bugzilla or forums, are getting more attention than before, which may compensate.
The CDT continues to follow Eclipse User Interface Guidelines however there have been discussions on different fronts about how to improve the user experience. For this release, there are no major changes, but in future releases, the CDT will simplify and modernize usability, especially in the area of Launch Configurations.
The ancient CDI debug interface remains end-of-lifed. Consideration will be made to remove it in the Mars (2015) timeframe. Interfaces should be deprecated in the code first.
The CDT is going full-speed in its use of Gerrit and contributions are coming in steadily. The number of committers remains stable but we would like to see it grow further.
