The Eclipse Foundation will release Eclipse 3.0 for download June 30, making it available under royalty-free general availability. The word that Eclipse 3.0 will ship next week brings to culmination more than a year of design, developing and testing. Download Eclipse 3.0 here

Integration Developer News spoke with Eclipse project lead Erich Gamma, who told us the Eclipse team focused on four (4) 'main directions where we want to take Eclipse...to the next level.'

The upgrade focus areas include:
# (1) Rich Client Platform -- moving beyond development tools,
# (2) UI Responsiveness -- running more operations in the background
# (3) Improved User Experience -- easier navigation/accessing features, and
# (4) Generalized Java tools -- handling more than just Java source files.
