"It has been a thrill to see the rapid adoption of the task-focused interface transforming the productivity of so many developers," said Mik Kersten, CEO of Tasktop Technologies and creator of the open source Eclipse Mylyn project. "Tasktop Pro brings the benefits of Mylyn to a much broader user base by providing enterprise features and integrations for leading Agile and ALM tools.  We are grateful to the Eclipse community for recognizing Tasktop Pro in these awards, and will continue driving Eclipse innovation with upcoming enhancements to Tasktop Pro that leverage new features and APIs that we have been working on for the upcoming Helios release of Eclipse and Mylyn."

The Eclipse Community Awards recognize the best of the Eclipse community. The awards comprise three categories which include: Individuals, Eclipse Projects, and Technologies and Products. The Best RCP Application category falls under the Technologies and Products category, and highlights an end-user desktop application (not hosted at Eclipse) that illustrates the most innovative use of Eclipse RCP. The Tasktop Pro RCP application builds on a non-programmer specific subset of Mylyn in order to provide the benefits of the task-focused interface in a desktop application that can be used by project managers, team leads, and developers not using the Eclipse IDE.

Tasktop created Tasktop Pro task management and ALM integration tools to help developers be more productive by making it effortless for them to organize their work around tasks and automatically present the most relevant source code and project management information associated with each task. The end result is that developers and other stakeholders no longer have to waste time repeatedly searching and scrolling for the information they need to get work done, since Tasktop Pro shows only the information relevant to the task-at-hand.
