Mylar is a task focused UI for Eclipse that makes working with very large workspaces as easy as working with small ones. It makes tasks a first class part of Eclipse, and integrates task repositories such as Bugzilla, Trac, and JIRA.Mylar 1.0 is available for Eclipse 3.2 and Eclipse 3.3M3. For information on how to obtain Mylar, visit the download site. For more information about Mylar, see the webinar or read the article by the Mylar project lead Mik Kersten.
The Eclipse Mylar project has released version 1.0. Mylar provides a task-focused user interface for Eclipse that makes it easier to work with large workspaces (thereby making developers more productive). Mylar provides a task-focused user interface to Eclipse that filters IDE views (Navigator, Package Explorer, Outline, etc.) to show only relevant elements, thereby reducing information overload and allowing the developer to focus on a specific task. Further, Mylar provides direct integration with bug tracking software. From the website:

Is it true that Mylar provides a task-focused user interface for Eclipse?
Thanks for the kudos guys. Delivering this new way of working to so many programmers, in under three years, has been a wild an amazing ride that could not have been possible without all of the passionate early adopters and countless community contributions.

Congratulations to the Mylar team. I just discovered this gem a couple of days ago and now we get a 1.0 release. Connecting it to JIRA was easy and I now have a nice overview of our JIRA issues right in Eclipse. The task based view is taking a little to get used to, but I think it holds a lot of potential. I'm looking forward to getting closer acquinted with this interesting tool over the next couple of days. Just my 0.25 Kr.
Congratulations, Mylar team. I have used Mylar on a couple of recent projects and got excellent results. It is a fantastic tool that not only kept me focused on the current task, but also helped me get back to that task quite easily later. Anyone dealing with complex software system ought to look at Mylar. -Ramnivas
Has anyone successfully used headless version of mylar. We need to integrate bugzilla into our intranet and thought to give headless a try. What we end up with is that headless is not really headless. There are whole bunch of classes that still use lot of eclipse core classes. Wondering if someone has experience implementing the same. I would hate to branch off the code and fix it locally because that would make future upgrades harder. -Shailesh
