I saw the same announcement on EGL Café.

Looks interesting, but I wonder what the difference is with the community edition (which you can download as a stand-alone eclipse install, or as a plugin for an existing eclipse).

I do not think there will be much difference from the end-user in terms of functionality. The crucial thing is that it moves from being some obscure internal IBM project to be a official Eclipse project, with all that that means. It hopefully also results in that all talk about "IBM may kill this any moment, like many other previous technologies" will go away. Perhaps IBM will loose interest and abandon the codebase, but at least it is publicly available so others can pick up the ball. Being an Eclipse project may even gather enough momentum that the user base grows enough for IBM not to loose interest.

For us, this move means that we may reconsider our decision about not to use it :-)
