I could have sworn I saw HD versions of all three of the demo videos
I first uploaded them. Now looking at them again they are all small
grainy. I will have to take a look tonight to see what is going on
Let me know if you figured those out ;)
Yes, the wizard takes the already generated report out of the
folder, zips/tars it up and exports it to the location of your choice.

there is the option to always generate new report before export as
As far as adding to the global menu. I did not know where else to put
new actions. I do have the export wizard in the export wizards dialog,
the other two options to view in the windup report view and to
the windup report need a place to live. Before I first added the menu
was chatting with my friend who still commits to WTP about where he

there as well was because I already had the sub menu and it seemed
logical place a user may look for the export function as well as

As far as adding all of this to the jboss-tools project. The biggest
problem is I still not have a nightly build, and I do not have a
build for the eclipse plugin because I have not been able to
with Brad to get a nightly build for Windup. The biggest issue with
getting a nightly for windup would be to actually do a windup release
start doing windup development in a snapshot version rather than 0.7.0
where it has been being done for the past year. I did start that
conversation with Brad a few months back but it stalled out due to
events. If you all are ready to make this happen on your end then I
start trying to work with Brad again to get Windup versioning
and the nightly builds set up.
as far as I understand Lincoln is getting involved in the migration
so it would make sense to try coordinate the various releases with him
i've cc'ed him here.

seem to only be available in 360 resolution - got something bigger so
see what happens ?
btw. I noticed Windup is added to the ever growing root context menu.
shouldn't this not just be via
the wizard menu or configured first via the Configure submenu instead
polluting this context menu ?
