been copied, several analyses will be run to extract information such as frequent usage patterns,
common code snippets etc.

I'd like to ask you for little information what can be done with Ivy 2.3:

There has been no discussion about doing a release on the dev list. Nothing planed.

About IvyDE, speaking only for myself, I think we should do one soon. I'll to suggest to the
developer community to do a beta release once some few tasks will be accomplished (change
the setup of the eclipse updatesite, some doc and do some basic functionally wide testing).
