Do you like those little notification pop-ups that Mylyn and RSSOwl do? Do you like Pop-up Video?

If so, please voice your support on this enhancement request against the Eclipse Workbench to include support for a standard desktop notification pop-up.

I think this is a great idea as I’ve seen a lot of questions on how to do those “Mylyn pop-ups.” Plus, the ability to notify users in a fairly discrete manner is nice.

Thanks Mylyn

On my way to the Equinox Summit with a 160 minute layover in Chicago, I was hacking a bug to add execution environment selection and validation to PDE (thanks Gary) when I noticed this in a recent build of Mylyn:

Thanks Mylyn! I was waiting for the ability to edit those Bugzilla keywords. Now we just need to figure out how to work with bugzilla flags without me opening a web browser.

By the way, if you haven’t tried out Mylyn, I’d recommend it. It has some nifty features that I can’t live without these days:

  • offline bugzilla browsing while on an airplane
  • ability to attach contexts to bugs to help new contributors navigate the PDE codebase
  • ability to apply patches from within Eclipse without opening a silly web browser
  • somewhat easy screenshot attachment to bugs
