The ChangeLog plug-in for Eclipse is a basic set of extensions to enable ChangeLog functionality for projects in Eclipse.

Before using the plug-in, you should set the ChangeLog preferences. These preferences include the name and e-mail address you wish to use in a ChangeLog entry.

The default name and e-mail address used by the ChangeLog plug-in are your workstation username and your username@hostname information, respectively. If you set the environment variables ECLIPSE_CHANGELOG_REALNAME and/or ECLIPSE_CHANGELOG_EMAIL, the ChangeLog plug-in will use these as the default name and e-mail address instead.
