I was looking at the download stats for SWTBot across different versions
of eclipse. These numbers don't take into consideration the number of
downloads from the mirror sites, but the distributions of the downloads
SWTBot for eclipse 3.4: 158 (14%)
SWTBot for eclipse 3.5: 798 (70%)
SWTBot for eclipse 3.6: 187 (16%)
Eclipse 3.4 is now almost 2 years old and the last bug fix release was
in Feb 2009.
Given this situation, it is very difficult to continue to provide a
light weight testing tool that works across 3 different versions of
eclipse on 4 different platforms linux, windows and macosx(carbon/cocoa).
In light of this, I'm considering dropping support for eclipse 3.4 for
future releases. I'm happy to assist anyone wanting to contribute
efforts towards maintaining a release of SWTBot for eclipse 3.4.
Older releases of SWTBot(since rev204 in March 2009) will continue to be
available on the archive site for a long time to come.
Thoughts, brickbats ?
