The Eclipse Board of Stewards today announced Eclipse's reorganization into a not-for-profit corporation. Originally a consortium that formed when IBM released the Eclipse Platform into Open Source, Eclipse is now an independent body that will drive the platform's evolution to benefit the providers of software development offerings and end-users. All technology and source code provided to this fast-growing ecosystem will remain openly available and royalty-free.
QNX CEO Dan Dodge takes seat on board of directors. "QNX is proud to be a driving force behind Eclipse since its inception," said Dan Dodge. "With a seat on the board as a strategic developer member, we are reinforcing and extending our commitment to the goals of seamless tool integration and advancement of best-in-class tooling for embedded software development."
