(Based on an advertising from 1954)
62 Indigo projects compared to 39 Helios projects suggest that 23 projects have joined the release train. However, when taking a closer look at these numbers, one notices that it is the way of counting that has changed. While for instance EMF Compare and EMF Validation among EMF were counted as one in Helios, in Indigo these are two separate projects. Counting the old way the Indigo figures are less impressive:
Simultaneous releases compared (also as SVG)
Irrespective of the way of counting, there are two more projects in Indigo than in Helios: 11 projects joined and 9 stepped off the train.
11 additional projects:
- Agent Modeling Platform (AMP)
- Eclipse Generation Factories (EGF)
- EMF Facet
- Maven Integration (M2E)
- Runtime Packaging Project (RTP)
9 Helios projects that are not in Indigo:
- BPMN Modeler
Device Software Development Platform (DSDP)restructured
- EMF Teneo
- GMF Tooling
- Java Emitter Templates (JET)
Test and Performance Tools Platform (TPTP)terminated
The total number of lines of code has increased by about 40%, which is due to extensive newcomers like Object Teams, WindowBuilder and Jubula and the addition of new subprojects of WTP and Mylyn.
In my view, whichever way you count it, these are good numbers.
