| out ‘hot topics’ but I think there are going to be 3-4 areas of particular 
| interest: 1) Eclipse runtime technology based on Equinox and OSGi is very 
| popular and generates lots of interest. 2) Eclipse modeling technology and 
| specifically the area of domain specific languages, 3) e4, our next 
| generation of Eclipse, will get lots of attention, and finally 4) mobile 
| application development.
