DTP 1.0 released

DTP 1.0 has been released and is now available on the download site.

I'd like to thank everyone in the community who helped DTP achieve this important goal. As Bjorn said in the release review, this is an "important step." Yes, it is important , because with 1.0 we move from incubating to mature status as a project. It is also a step, one move forward along the DTP path. We have a number of exciting ideas for DTP in 2007, not the least of which is participation in the Europa coordinated release. Also, there are a number of DTP presentations scheduled for EclipseCon, many of which will explore these directions.

We at DTP are looking forward to working with an expanding community in the coming months -- please keep telling us (newsgroup, Bugzilla, mailing lists, etc.) what we are doing well, where we need to improve, and what you'd like to see! And, making on final turn on a recent PlanetEclipse theme, since Eclipse is all of us, we really appreciate all the help the community can offer! :-)

Personally, I think the most important next thing is better support for widely used databases, such as MySQL & Oracle. Otherwise, many people (I one of them) will really have no use for DTP.

Thank you and I agree -- we need to support more databases. We are actively working with the community in this regard through our Enablement subproject, and hope to see an increase in such support through 2007.
