I don't think we have any formal road map for developing ECLiPSe -- I 
don't think we have a grand plan for what will appear in the next
version of ECLiPSe. In addition, we hope to see user contributions,
as we have quite limited human resources. The global constraints,
for example, is larger a contributed effort (from Helmut Simonis).

I have not seen the final version of all the constraints, but there is 
about 7 or 8 new constraints, in addition to the generalised arc 
consistent version of alldifferent that is already in ECLiPSe 6.0
(in the newly added lib(ic_global_gac)). The new constraints include
gcc (global cardinality constraint), the matrix versions of gcc and 
alldifferent, same, sequence (I think this may also be called 
among_seq), inverse. These all acheive gac propagation.

In addition, I plan to look at and hopefully implement bound consistent 
plus versions of alldifferent and gcc, with some low-level C support.

Cheers,

Kish
