EPIC, Mylyn and "interesting files"

  • Just though that I'd let those of you that use Mylyn (http://www.eclipse.org/mylyn/ ) know that Mylyn's task-focus now works with EPIC again.

    To explain:
    - you 'activate' a bug (eg from bugzilla, but displayed by Mylyn in Eclipse)
    - as you open new files, it marks them as 'interesting',
    - when you work in 'task-focus' mode, you see just the interesting files, rather than everything in your project

    This is a really useful feature, and I suggest you try it out. It stopped working about a year ago, and I really missed the functionality.

    You'll need to install the latest weekly version of Mylyn, from the weekly site (not the standard update site):
