Hi,

I have an RCP app where the main feature version is 1.0.x. I'm moving to 1.x.0, ie from equivalent to compatible, which I can make the update mechanism recognize by setting:

org.eclipse.update.core/org.eclipse.update.core.updateVersio ns=compatible

in my plugin_customization.ini

However, when I make a major version upgrade, ie 1.x.0 to 2.0.0 then how do I make the update mechanism recognize that?

I've seen references on the web to a major option but having checked out the update core plugin I can't see any reference in the source (certainly not in UpdateCore.java).

So, how do you deal with this scenario?!

Thanks,
Justin

Hi Justin,

Isn't this a minimum flag? compatible meaning compatible AND major?

Regards,

Wim
