A better question would be whether there are any plans to make e4 compatible with the rest of the Eclipse community.

The last we checked, the current e4 compatibility story was pretty bad. Until the JDT and PDE are rock solid in e4, there is little hope for WB.

Since e4 is still pretty much just an alpha/beta at this point, we plan to see how it evolves over the next year.

We don't have any current plans to focus on e4 through the end of 2010, but will likely revisit this in Q1 or Q2 of 2011.
