Hi devs,

Please help to review and vote on the release of Geronimo Eclipse Plugin (GEP) 3.0-beta-1 RC1.

GEP 3.0-beta-1 supports Geronimo server 3.0-beta-1, 2.2.1, 2.1.7 and Eclipse Indigo (3.7).

[Known issue]  GEP 3.0-beta-1 uses maven-eclipsepde-plugin v1.1, which means it can not be built successfully on 64bit win7 and 64bit macos. See following JIRAs for details.
- https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GERONIMODEVTOOLS-737 Could not build GEP3.0 under win7-64bit
- https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GERONIMODEVTOOLS-674 Could not build GEP3.0 under macos-64bit
