Eclipse 3.3

Postby James Leotta » Sat Feb 24, 2007 9:42 pm

Hello,

I just subscribed to Apollo but I am using Eclipse 3.3M5xx. Is this supported?

Thanks,
Jim

Hi,

The milestones of Eclipse 3.3 are not supported yet. We will migrate Apollo to the newest version after the official release of Eclipse "Europa".
So, for using Apollo you have to use the Eclipse version that we recommend in our documentation.

Kind regards,
Stefan

Why not migrate once Eclipse enters Release Candidate cycle?

Hi Stefan,

I can understand you not wanting to work on M builds, but once a synchronised Eclipse release enters it's release candidate stage, you should be able to dive in and get it migrated.

Why wait until the official release, instead of getting started earlier?

Regards,

Neale

Of course we have started adapting to 3.3 before the offical Europa release of Eclipse and we keep working eagerly on catching up.

Note that Apollo does not only rely on the Eclipse SDK, but also on a bunch of other frameworks, as EMF, GMF, EMFT and oAW. Each of these is evolving at different speeds and have their own development process. Backward compatibility is not always assured. Also, essential parts of these frameworks, e.g. the template migration of GMF, have been finished after the release candidates.

We cannot afford to rewrite huge amounts of our code with each milestone / release candidate of Eclipse, so sometimes we have to wait for the final releases.

Nevertheless, we're sorry you currently have to stick with Eclipse 3.2 to use Apollo for a short period. We hope to improve the speed of the migration in the future.

Hi Jan,

Thanks for the response.

Do forgive any impatience at this end. It's purely down to having tasted the forbidden fruit with trying out Together (now by Borland), and not being able to afford their high prices. I'm looking forwards to being able to use simultaneous modelling at a price that small businesses and open source developers can afford.

Keep up the good work.

Cheers,

Neale

We have reached feature freeze and we are currently testing and fixing bugs. We plan to have the release in about two weeks (+/- 1 week).

Regards
Jan
